Still life with Marceli's necklace

Oils 9x12. The picture is just a touch blurry.

I've been doing little daylies- but was itching to make a larger (sort of) work so I can start building my portfolio! My plan is to launch a website and marketing strategies early next year, so I had better have some paintings done...
I feel like this took me forever- probably 6 hours, and I was so careful I wonder if it looks a little stiff. I got some great advice on this forum about how to tackle lace and fringe, so I thought I would post my result here. Thanks for looking! - Kathryn
Detail (there is a shadow on it that I didn't notice when I was taking the picture)

Good strategic move Kathryn! You certainly got the shawl...it's beautifully done. I notice you didn't ask for any C&C...so I won't give you any

Kathryn - Super job on lace and fringe! I like the arrangement of items in your composition and the brushstroke.

Thanks Deirdre, Anna! I appreciate the comments. I do want C&C! I forgot that I have to mention that in my post.... I'm very serious about developing this career and want every chance to improve.
