Milk and Grapes

Another great find!  i recently bid on a box of vintage milk glass at a local auction and won!  This compote caught my eye immediately and I just had to paint it.  The globe grapes were plucked off the vine before all were ripe (notice the variation of colors) and the leaf was a vibrant spring green.  I just love the color combination.   The contrast of the milk glass under low lighting was the finishing touch!  Hope you like it too.
