Today I started working on an illustration (with a pumpkin) inspired by Illustration Friday's theme of "transportation" and also a visit I made to a friend's house in Iowa to photograph her pumpkins. It was a gorgeous day, a little too hot for October (in the 80s.) Wish I had been able to stay longer and actually paint them from life but I'll have to go back another day. I got some great photographs. We even coaxed her black lab to get in some pictures. Unfortunatley, I haven't quite finished painting my illustration so I'll just give you a teaser - it has a pumpkin and some fall flowers and a few bugs that we encountered. :)
Until tomorrow, here is a pumpkin painting that I did in 2005 before I started this blog.
