Small gourds acrylic painting is an original still life. It is completed in muted tones and calm colors of autumn, but with a splash of sunshine in the form of two gourds. Orange and yellow gourds stand out against bluish and greenish gray backgound. One of them is smooth with pointy sides. The other one is ugly and monstrous, but that is what makes it interesting and draws the viewer's attention. The gourds are pointing in different directions, guiding the viewer's eye in a circular motion around the canvas. The flow of this painting represents the circular flow of seasosns.
This small 8 by 8 inch painting would look great in a dark frame or complete a collage of autumn artworks on the wall.
