I spotted this lively display of pumpkins outside our local grocery and was inspired to capture them in paint. Yes, I am that woman photographing produce at the supermarket. We did purchase one pumpkin, I think it was the little white one in the bottom right corner of my painting. It now lives on our porch along side a purple mum. It's such a colorful time of the year.

I am still working out how best to define this series, so is it a series yet? I don't know. The last surf painting was in a rectangular format, this is a square. I really like the square format and can see multiples of these all lined up. We'll see. My challenge here was to keep the soft early morning light on the surf. I used a bit of sandpaper at the end to put some sparkles in the spray. That was kind of fun and kind of scary all at the same time.

Don't forget to visit my Daily Paintworks page to see what works I have available for purchase!

sketchbook :: cinnamon buns

Kiddo's favorite Sunday morning breakfast, sketched with watercolor only in my handmade sketch journal. They are very tasty and very sweet, almost too sweet for me, especially first thing in the morning. I need to inspire her to make muffins, or omelettes, wouldn't that be good!

“In the tapestry of childhood, what stands out 
is not the splashy, blow-out trips to Disneyland 
but the common threads that run throughout and repeat: 
the family dinners, nature walks, reading together at bedtime, 
Saturday morning pancakes.” 
― Kim John Payne
