Two days ago I did an underpainting of a house down the street. When I went back to work on it, it looked so boring I decided to put it aside until never. Instead I thought I'd do a small painting of the pumpkins on display outside of the Witch's store.
I never realized how hard it was to paint pumpkins. I ended up with a kitschy painting that looks like a "home decor" item. At least it was relief from the boring house.
P.S. My friend Deborah suggested hanging on to the underpainting so I thought I might rephotograph it at 2 am and make it a nocturn.
