Pumpkin Spiced Painting

A trip to the farmer’s market makes it clear that fall colors have arrived.  The summer’s bounty is finally ready for harvest, displaying a visual feast for the eye.  Everywhere you turn are fall flowers in every imaginable color, and inspiration for still life paintings abounds.  But orange, the quintessential color of fall, is best represented in the iconic pumpkin on display for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Much like the leaves that fall from trees in layer after layer on the ground, the strokes in this demonstration piece for Hobart Art League replicate fall’s abstract patterns of beauty.
