Finally finished. It was complete a long time ago, and then I smeared a small wet area when I put the final coat of Liquin on, and so I had to repair it...and getting to that took forever.

Anyway, painted from a photo I took: [link]

Not a great photo of the painting. A bit out of focus, and the lighting was funky...there's more cool color in the tablecloth and background here than there is in reality, where it is a warmer spectrum.

It looks fantastic! Do you have any tips for painting glass with oil paint?

Thank you! Not really, unfortunately! I painted this while under instruction myself, and I have not been very active with the medium for years. Basically for this one, I drew out everything first, in painstaking detail. Every little color shape in that glass, I drew first, so it was kind of like a hand made paint by number. That was the only way for me to get all that precision.
