I have been wanting to paint a pumpkin as the main subject for a long time. I have to admit it was a lot of fun. I love the big orange shape and all the warm colors. I am starting to feel some what competent with still lifes. I did a few smaller studies that are 6"x8" of the same scene as a warm up. I may paint it again in a different arrangement.
Maybe as winter sets in I will do a few winter still lifes.
