Hi,
Just finished this. It is 11" x 14". I am pleased with the way that it has turned out. I am trying not to overwork my paintings. Hope you enjoy it.
Comments and critiques welcome. Also posted in still lifes.

What a colourful sight to behold and beautifully painted. The gourds (I think that's right) look really interesting and make you look closer. :clap:

I like it very much. It is a pity the max pixel limit stops us having a really good look. You seem to have so much nice detail there I would like to have a really good look at.

Nick has called for some lovely closeups...can you do that for us? If not, oh well, at least we get to look at your painting this much, thanks Gay.

Excellent work. Personally, I would tone down the shadow coming from the top of the extreme left gourd to keep to same as other shadows; my eye kept getting drawn to this dark spot.... But I think I'm being a bit picky. Great work. Let's see some more.

Angie, Nick, here is a close-up for your viewing pleasure. :p

Now that I am looking at this again, I think I need to make the shadow of the pumpkin stem more narrow as it goes down.

This is quite superb and I am :envy: with jealousy.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: All the same. I would have this hanging in my home without a shred of a doubt :wave:
Thanks for the extra photo for us to drool over.

Hi Katz,
Just seen the close up - lovely!
I feel inspired to get to the green grocer and get something - do find myself picking my fruit and veg on how pretty they are!

Gourdgeous :)

LOL thanks Nick, Bobbo, and Eileen.
I just got back from a neighborhood farmer. I think he felt sorry for me because I got so excited from seeing all the different colors and shapes of the gourds that he has. Sad I know... Hee hee.
Anyway I got a big bag of all diff. colors and sizes for really cheap! Now I just have to wait untill I can collect some Fall leaves to add to the gourds for a series of still lifes I want to do. :D
