I love the way you paint smoke, with those Art Nouveau shapes.
I'm currently making a steel stairway railing based on the shape of vortices in water.
It's a very similar aesthetic.
May I recommend a marvelous book?

Not many still life paintings catch my eye, but this is a really gorgeous treatment! Really makes me want to try oils.

... is that a bowling ball in the back on the left?

looks so realistic, until i see the smoke, and it drives me to think if there is a figure in it.. i would have love it so much more if so, but anywayz, i like the soft details as well as the tones on the painting.

awww, this is so beautiful! The mood is fantastic. I like how it has a photorealistic nature, as well as a sketchy unfinished side in those two corners. Its so ingenious! And that smoke is gorgeous.
