Water Glass and Garlic



Oil on canvas, 8 x 8 inches. This is my first painting on canvas in quite a while. I'm working on a large 36 x 48 inch painting and it will be on canvas, so I thought I'd experiment with some small still lifes and get my sea legs back.

I like this painting, and without going into a critique that you didn't ask for I wanted to offer this comment-

I think the water glass really makes this painting. You're showing off a certain sensitivity to light with your glasses (namely this and the OJ painting) that I feel your solid objects sometimes lack.
I wonder if you would agree that you are approaching these objects differently, and if you are... why? I can't say for sure whether it's the amount of detail or the edge treatment or something else that makes these stand out, but they're very nice.
