"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!
