Pumpkins . . .

"Pumpkin Pals" - wip
8" x 8"
watercolor on aquabord

. . . or Kim Kardashian's arse?  Ugh!  I really didn't mean for this to happen.  As you all know, I've been in a rut here.  I've spent days pouring over uninspiring references, I've been half-heartedly sketching landscapes, practicing trees, studying foliage and for what?  Just colossal fails, that's what.  Not a good idea trying to learn new things when one is feeling rather low about one's skills.  So I decided to go back to which is most familiar:  the still life.  So I bought some old gourds, took all sorts of pictures and started painting.  I'm feeling rather inspired.  Unfortunately, however, the beginning of this painting looks like that horrible photo of Kim Kardashian's bum that's circulating . . . the one we're all trying to get away from!  Seriously . . . forgive me . . . I really didn't do this on purpose.  

Have a great day.


  1. I think you have amazing skills! These don't look like behinds to me, but I don't think I'm familar with the particular Kardashian picture you mention....nor do I want to be! Keep painting, your work is great!

  2. You cracked me up!!! That foto of KK is all over German news.....then I read this....your pumpkins look fabulous which is more than I can say for some other things:)
