Kitchen Reflections in a Tall Black Mug - Oil on 8"x8" Linen Panel

This is the second time I've painted this mug, but this time I wanted to try a slightly larger format with different reflections and fabric.  I worked on it over a few afternoon sessions and recently returned to it to refine some of the shadows and folds in the fabric.  It was nice to slow down a little and work on a slightly larger size.
