Still Life with Vermeer

My most recent still life, so recent it might not even be done yet.  I'm having trouble getting a decent picture, because of all of the dark values, I'm getting a lot of glare.  The top picture is in better focus and has less glare, but because I put a spotlight right on it, the top figure looks brighter than the cloth, so the bottom picture is more accurate that way.  I'm going to fool around some more and see if I can get a better picture. But anyway, it is 14x18 oil on panel as usual.  The picture in the background is Vermeer's Christ in the house of Martha and Mary.
