Pumpkin truck,acrylic on canvas, 11"x14", and SNOWDAY!!!!

This was a commission for a dear friend who gifted this to her mom yesterday.They had seen a similar version at a show I had about 10 years ago. I recreated the same sort of thing, but used a photo of my friend Karen Biagini's truck and made up the pumpkins.
It was a challenge to paint a fall scene in winter but I really had a blast painting it and I was glad to hear that she loved it.
Oh- and BTW- the penguins( actually from the SOUTH pole I find out!) are  a photoshop trick! I do have three that are really there (painted on  plywood) and my brother also has a set in his yard. Someday I hope to have enough to make my yard look like that!

I was scheduled to work today- at the museum, and go out later.
Mother nature had a different plan for us today , and although I'm VERY sad not to see my cousin Julie who is visiting from Asheville, NC ):, I was happy to stay in and paint. I am painting"glass" today for my challenge group.
Its really REALLY hard to paint glass!
It was my favorite kind of painting day today.
