This 5"x7" oil on gessobord was part of a glass study. What I like about this still life is the complementary colors and the mason jar lid. When I moved into my home 20 years ago the entire property was lined with a 10 feet deep forsythia border. It took quite a few years and our hard work to remove all of the forsythia for new gardens. This is cutting is from the one bush that remains. I hack away at it every year after it blooms... so I guess I have a love/hate relationship with forsythia.
