Painting #9. Nov/Dec 2016. 8X10 acrylic. My first attempt at a still life using a reference photo. I liked the lack of strong color because it made me pay attention to value.

Deborah, I have this thing for light colored pumpkins. This is so soft and inviting. You did a great job on this.

Deborah - this is amazing!  You have done a wonderful job of conveying all of the various textures and I like the soft light.  This is so well done!

I love all the details which show the time which passes by. Very well done Deborah!

You have done very well here Deborah, I very much like this style of painting which may convey a message but to me they all ways have a hidden story too tell.

This painting is in the Hopper style and at the moment I am reading a book on some of Hoppers paintings which the Author has invited various Authors  to write  a short story on a selected painting.

Well done.

I agree with Mary and Wenda.  Great values and light.  Your peeling paint effect is amazing.
