One of my goals for the coming year is to try and have a more painterly style in my art. I tend to get caught up in details... maybe that is why I enjoy painting glass so much. When I began the painting I wanted to keep the beautiful details and reflections in the main subject and have less detail and light on the table top. So I did not paint every little swirl in the wood grain and hoped to give the "feel" of wood instead.. kinda let your mind put the swirls there.... hope I succeeded.
