The Red Grapes--Original Still Life Oil Painting

I think it is finished. I've been glazing away on this painting for weeks. A number of thin layers of oil paint made creating his painting a lengthy task. As each layer was added, I waited a week for it to dry before adding a new layer. Needless to say, it has been at least a month since I began working on this one--I lost track of when it was actually begun. The painting is 16x20 inches on stretched canvas. When this final layer dries, it will be for sale at my gallery at 1000 Markets. Until then, you can click here or here to view some of my other sill life oil paintings.
