Illustration Friday "Transportation" / Month of Pumpkins Day 9

Here is my illustration for IF's "transportation" theme. It's also day 9 of my project to paint one pumpkin painting a day during October. Yesterday I went out to Glenwood, Iowa to visit a friend and photograph pumpkins. We encountered a few garden friends - a huge praying mantis and lots of box elder beetles amongst the marigolds and mums. I imagine later that afternoon they got together with some moths and took a ride in a pumpkin carriage pulled by a garter snake off to a Fall gathering somewhere in the Glenwood Woods.
