Project 3 - Painting cut glass vase with cherries inside

I finally sat down to work a little more on this last project from Anne Abgott's workshop last week.  I've never done anything like this.  I'm not sure if this looks like cut glass yet.  We have a very good color photo she gave us to work from.  Some of the cherries inside the vase show through and are distorted.  Some of the reflections and prism looking shapes in the glass are different shades of grey.  It is tedius work, and sometimes I get lost and don't know where I am since the shapes are abstract. 

It was a busy weekend.  We had a baby granddaughter born, the rocking chair I ordered for my own pregnant daughter came in and had to be picked up, and my mother is recovering from surgery and needs someone (like me) dropping by twice a day to check her meds and pain control and meals.  Sometimes it is darned hard to be a "stay-at-home-artist"!!!

This is very interesting. I like the abstract look of it and wonder where you will go from here?
You are a busy girl! Hope your Mom is doing well.

Thanks everyone, it was a really fun workshop. Mom is doing a little better, but I hired someone to help her out on weekends. That should help my sister and I too!
