Binder Clip

6"x4" oil on door skin. Another studio and household staple: the versatile binder clip. Ever present and ever useful — clipping together a stack of paper, temporarily hang something, sealing a bag of chips, making over sized cloths fit during shoot, or tricking your little brother into clipping it onto his ear — the uses are endless! A tricky little thing to paint though, I had to have it quite close by to see the details.
