Acorn Squash

Another small still life study (6"x6"). I actually bought the acorn squash a couple of weeks ago. It was mainly green when purchased and has changed over to a pumpkin orange since then. I always loved acorn squash - split it apart add butter, cinnamon, brown sugar and bake it - yum! 

The orange squash reminds me of fall and pumpkins. It is late August and fall is really on the way now. The mornings are now getting cool and I am sitting here watching the news on Hurricane Irene which they are saying will probably hit my beloved NC Outer Banks. I wish the best for the people there. The color and angle of the sunlight is also visibly changing. Fall is my favorite time of the year, but like spring it does not last long enough.

I will have to start painting outdoors more now that it is getting cooler. Thanks for your visit and I hope all of you have a great autumn!
