Yeah...it's a painting.

A gallery contacted me about my photorealistic work and asked if I could provide them with something new, suggesting portraiture or a still life. "Still life, huh? Oh, I know JUST what to do!"

 

It seemed like a fun idea at the outset, but it soon turned into the most challenging small painting I've ever attempted. The detail and need for precision (try painting a perfectly straight line some time!) was an absolute nightmare. But I have to admit, now that it's finished, I'm pretty proud of this one. So anyway, good or bad, here it is...
