Pumpkin and Knife

Posted on Updated on

6 by 6 inches, oil on gessoed hardboard

This pumpkin has been sitting around the kitchen for a while now. No danger of being turned into a jack-o-lantern at this point, but pie sounds pretty good. Does the pumpkin look oddly small? It’s a big knife. I was deliberate with painting first the shadow areas, and then the light, and I think  it helped. Hard to figure that out for the background, though.
