Yes, oil. Like I said it has a still life underneath and several "finishes" of this painting. It kept sitting around here thumbing its nose at me until I changed all the things that screamed at me and then added the two eagles and truly called it finished this time.
Bah humbug. Goldens are where it's at. They are true monsters. Oh well, yeah people do love baldies, and to be fair, baldies are also formidable, though ravens outsmart them all the time. There isn't a raven alive stupid enough to mess with a golden.
