Homage to Ralph Goings: Part 3

This is the third and final painting in the series, an homage to photo-realist Ralph Goings. Of the three, this one proved most difficult because of the complicated lighting and the refraction of light and color through the glass shakers. I'm not happy with the scan; it's too bright in some areas, particularly in the dark background and ketchup bottle. Still, I'm pleased with the set . . . but ready to put the shakers and ketchup bottles away and return to architectural themes for a bit. Any thoughts of which is the best of the three?

It's REALLY difficult to choose. You know my favorite. But of #2 and #3, if I HAD to pick, I'd pick #2. So it goes 1-2-3 I guess. You know, your architecturals are awesome but these are super great too; I think you should explore more. Maybe some chrome, for example?

I absolutely love this painting. I haven't made my way to Part 1 and 2 yet, but I will check them out after posting this comment.

You're a very talented artist. I have a real fondness for art, and wish that I had been blessed with the talents you possess! Instead, I just ooh and ahh over everyone else's work! :)
