Autumn has definitely arrived in Ohio. The Dahlia's that bloomed so beautifully all summer are now sleeping. I set this still life up on the deck, and it took me days to get the reference photo I was looking for. The chickadee cooperated, lured closer to the jug by a few seeds and nuts. The jug is a favorite new prop, purchased at Rose and Remmington here in Ohio.
5"x7" Oil on gessobord. Yes, that's the correct spelling for gessobord, but autocorrect doesn't like it. Gessobord is a product made by Ampersand, archival with a smooth surface which I prefer.
