My Little Pumpkin

This 6 x 6 acrylic is based on a photograph of my daughter when she was four or five years old and we lived in Dowling, Ontario.

Acrylic (6x6) "Pumpkin"
Artist: Cindi Moynahan-Foreman

Autumn is beautiful in the far north. My Hallowe'en memories from when I lived there include paper pumpkin lanterns lining our driveway, an oversized balloon bat stuck to the front of the house, a laughing welcome wreath that would shout "Happy Hallowe'en" whenever someone walked in front of it and so many more.

In this painting, I love the dark colours  and the orange of the large pumpkin, the pattern on my daughter's beautiful dress and how she is hugging the jack-o-lantern.

This was a joy to paint!
