"The Littlest Pumpkin"

   Private Collection of Steve and Carol Nolan
I painted this from a photograph that Carol took of her daughter, Holly, with her specially selected pumpkins. I tried to capture the bright October sunshine and her sheer joy and pleasure. Her little ponytail resembled the stem of the pumpkins, so the title became, "The Littlest Pumpkin". 

This painting was selected for the Watercolor Society of Oregon's 2003 Spring Show.
