Description

Rectangular, horizontal format print of two ducks in an autumn landscape. In crepuscular light, floating on a river with trees on the far bank rendered sketchily in earth tones. There are gray/brown ducks, one facing right, seen in profile, its mate to the right. They appear to be a type of mallard. The frame is an elaborately molded unpainted wood, with an inner band of stenciled grey paint over gilding.
