It doesn’t get much cuter than a pumpkin, in my opinion. They always put a smile on my face!

Currently on our dining room table we have 4 pumpkins: 1 large pumpkin my husband surprised me with a few weeks ago, 1 small orange pumpkin with a stem that stretches upwards, a white pumpkin (first for me), and this tiny gourd-like pumpkin I painted above.

I love how the pieces of the stem winds back down on this gourd-like pumpkin. I also love the different colors in the flesh of this pumpkin…oranges, olive green, and a bit of purple. Have you collected pumpkins this beautiful autumn season? What characteristics do they have?
