"Pumpkin" -- oil on canvas 12x12" -- Margie Guyot

I photographed this in a hurry yesterday as the light was going in a hurry.  I should have used a tripod, as it would have helped with the parallax alignment.  

This pumpkin is very large and must weigh at least 20 pounds.  I bought it last October from two young boys who had grown it.  Technically, it's a squash (and edible).  I've used it in several paintings already and wanted to paint it one last time before I cut it up and bake it.  The backside is starting to rot.

Last October it was dark green.  Slowly it's begun changing to more of an orange/rust tone.  I love the wonderful shape!
