"Bountiful Harvest"

Anyone for pumpkin pie? This is a new technique for me. I originally intended to paint this with brushwork, but the background needed a different approach to texture, so I picked up a palette knife & started painting. It was so much fun that I just continued to cover the canvas with paint. The colors were so luminous that I couldn't stop painting! It was the old tractor combined with the surface of the pumpkins that challenged me to paint another way.
