About the Painting: “The Pumpkin King” is a plein air impasto oil painting from my Little Gems Collection. This was a fun one to paint. When I was the organizer for Plein Air Wednesday I would look for places to paint in and around Ventura county in California. McGrath Family Pumpkin Patch is a family run farm and it is always a treat to go to their pumpkin patch. It is small, clean and they take the time to set up their displays with pride. Every where you would look there are little scenes set up all. The tractor hayride was so cute too. They were thrilled to have artists at the pumpkin patch and invited us back any day we would like to come. It was so hot, I felt like I was melting. It was worth it though for the gorgeous lighting we had.
“The Pumpkin King” was created with oil on canvas at the pumpkin patch during a heatwave. That is what makes the painting glow; the marine layer burning off under the sun created a dewey haze. The artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity, is signed on the front and back, dated and has the story too. Enjoy!
