Tangerines in Venitian Bowl, 9 x 10, oil on canvas-daily painting

The bowl in this painting is one I bought several summers ago while traveling in Venice, Italy. The Venitians love their glass and this little bowl is one of my favorite finds. I have been thinking of painting it for a while, but was not up to the challenge. I spent three days capturing this image.
