Silk Threads, 10x8

This is my first attempt at painting glass, and I now know that reflective surfaces are as challenging as I had always heard. That said, I think the glass rendering is reasonably successful here. Compositionally, I think I should have left the jar lid off, or moved the entire composition down on the canvas, as it fills cramped on the top. Side note: These are old wooden spools of silk thread, given to me by my mother-in-law. The colors and sheen were absolutely glowing. I also learned that painting single threads of silk requires something smaller than a one inch brush, ahem!
