018 pumpkin

018 “Pumpkin” Acrylic, 7″ x 5″

For some reason, it’s easy to love a pumpkin. Jack-o-lanterns? Not so easy, perhaps. But who could resist this little guy with such a flamboyant stem?  How that stem ended up surviving all the way from farm to grocery store is no doubt a sweet story that I’ll never know. I can only guess that no one along the way had the heart to chop it off.
