Do you love pumpkins? In the past decade pumpkins have become a trend. I personally, have always loved pumpkins. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin lattes. And pumpkin soup. But I also love the look of the pumpkin itself.
One year when our kids were young, we came to the end of the fall and threw a decorative pumpkin into a remote area of our backyard. The following summer, one of my boys came running into the house, “We have pumpkins growing!” And boy, did we. The pumpkin had produced a vine that was loaded with the orange gourdes. Needless to say, our visit to the Farmer’s Market that fall did not include purchasing pumpkins.
My painting, Harvest Haul, pays homage to both our trips to the Farmer’s Market as well as that fateful summer when a discarded pumpkin proved to have extended it’s life, yielding a plethora of pumpkins the following year. The original painting was a small 4×6 piece, but it translated so well into larger prints that I actually prefer the latter. In fact, I have an 11×14 that graces my dining area as shown below.
As you can see in the picture, woodland critters have joined the display. This is for my granddaughter’s benefit. She loves these stuffed animals.
Harvest Haul may be exactly what your kitchen or dining room has been needing. And it comes in a variety of sizes all printed on high quality watercolor paper. And there are framed options as well that come with a simple black gallery frame. You can check it out HERE.
