I haven't tried to do any painting for a while, in fact when I got out all of my materials I found that some of the paint tubes had dried up and a couple of brushes needed to be replaced having been used for other less lofty purposes when I was redecorating the living room last year.
I had some nice sketches but rather than take on anything too complex while I re-familiarized myself with everything, I decided to pick a very easy subject. This I decided would be a pumpkin.
Why a pumpkin?
Well, when getting out all of my fall decorations, I thought it would be fun to have a pumpkin painting to set out for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Then for the rest of the year I could store it away.
|just a few details...|
I have a a couple of frames in different sizes that I use to pop in paintings I have done. I only display one at a time. When I get tired of looking at it, changing it out for another one is easy to do. It's kind of fun.
All things considered I am rather pleased with my new pumpkin. I had forgotten what a pleasure it was to spend time involved in something so engaging as painting. It is a particularly pleasant way to spend these long, dark, winter nights.
As as for the results...the only one you have to really please is yourself!
A special thank you to my sister, a truly talented and excellent artist, who has given me endless help and advise on painting and art.
Thank you for visiting.
