Glass Houses, Sold

It was time to paint another still life.  It had been so long, I was afraid I had forgotten how. To make it just a little more difficult for myself, I picked this glass cup that has given me fits in the past. Naturally, it wasn't going too well, miserably in fact. When I wiped it down I was almost ready to just give up, but I didn't let myself off that easy. Nope, I stuck with it, and sure enough it paid off. I was able to figure out what I was not doing that I needed to do, and after a while it began to come together. Now I can't wait to do another one.
