A thrifted still-life painting

So, I found this still-life painting at the GW about a year ago. 
It has been sitting in my attic ever since.
When I was up there getting out Halloween decorations, I grabbed it thinking I could find a place for it.

You may remember my little table redo.

Well I just placed this cork board there because i felt something was missing, but I wasn't pleased with the way it looked. 

So I thought about putting my recently "new" to me again picture here.

Still have my hot chocolate and marshmallows in the Lance jar.

Another view

I think it looks much better. 

What do you think?

Have a good weekend y'all!

That picture is wonderful, great colors especially for fall 7 winter! It looks great there but I kind of agree with Sabri, the jar is pretty big and blocks most of the painting. If you had another spot for the jar, something a little smaller or the stacked books would look great. If not, it's good as is!
PS. put post up about Aaron today.

I love the painting there...looks better then the cork board. Can you hand the cork board on the wall above that? I think the scale looks good there with the picture, the Lance jar is really big and blocks some of the nice painting. It's always fun to find things we have buried's like shopping for free in the attic!
