Progression of a painting

I recently spent some time photographing new still life setups. (As if the 1,000+ pictures I have already taken are not enough to choose from.) Using an old bench I picked up in an antique store, I thought it would add interest to my new still lifes.  Here are a couple of pictures from my photo shoot, yet to be painted! The one I chose to paint is shown below, along with the progression of painting it.

I painted "Vintage Bauer with Garlic" (oil on linen, 12"x16") over the course of 6 days. (I captioned my quick snaps as I progressed.)

My finished painting.

P.S. I am excited to announce that this painting has since been selected for the California Art Club exhibit, "Golden State Treasures."
