sketchbook Tuesday :: pumpkins pick you

The first sketch on the first page spread of my newly made autumn sketchbook. A fresh beginning to welcome the autumn season. Kiddo picked out the pumpkin from the grocery. I chose the squash and will be cooking them sometime this week.

On our way into town there is a field with a pumpkin patch where they are selling pick-your-own pumpkins. As you round the curve there are signs placed along the road on each side of the entrance to the field, one for each word, "You", "Pick", "Pumpkins".  As you approach the pumpkin field entrance from either direction the signs read as I suppose they are intended, "You Pick Pumpkins". But, after you pass by, the signs read in reverse, "Pumpkins Pick You". We get a chuckle out of that thought every time. Because yes, when looking for a pumpkin, we suppose they really do pick you after all.

All things autumn! I love it and the palette is just exquisite (I've always loved orange and green together).
