Still Life with Pumpkin

My mom came to visit me one year and was delighted to find Orangina here, "Like they have in France!" I kept one of the bottles. I like the shape and texture of the glass, but it's difficult to put it into a composition because it's so bottom heavy. I like experimenting with different colored fabrics for backgrounds. At one point I liked going around the rainbow, doing one painting on a white background, one on a yellow background, orange, red, etc. That's my obsessive-compulsive side showing itself.
