I love French pumpkins. They have so much more character than the store bought American variety. Beautiful painting as always.
I went to see the local school's production of Little Shop of Horrors tonight so your greedy subject is resonating in a big soul-voice. Nice one, Jules. Feed me. x
That Pumpkin has obviously had a good life and deserves to be so Wonderfully Celebrated -
I am always finding the tiniest details in your paintings that seem to play such a big part in the over all. Here, there is the bright orange dash (a swoosh, maybe) right at the top center of the pumpkin, just above the wonderful center line shadow. Yes, is seems to be so important. Is this in fact one finishing touch? Seems to me to be so. And there are others, too. This, a wonderful, simple painting.
So many colors in one color.
Punkin pie mmmmmmm I like!
