The Cartloads of Pumpkins image was painted from a photograph I took one autumn while wandering the lovely Fruit Loop in Hood River, OR. The name of the image honors my maternal grandmother, who sang a song that began with the phrase Cartloads of Pumpkins, when I was very young.
I love the season of autumn, also known as fall, of course. With the coming of autumn, the season between summer and winter, the amount of sunlight decreases and the days and nights become much colder. The warm days and the chilly nights activate the color change in the leaves of the deciduous trees. The September Equinox is often considered the beginning of this season in North America. The months of September, October and November are considered to be the autumn months in North America, while March, April and May are South America’s autumn months.
Many foods are harvested in autumn. Some of them especially associated with this season, like pumpkins and apples, are represented in this painting....
About Jeanette French
Creating portals of light, love, joy, beauty, compassion, hope and gratitude is my lifelong passion and purpose.
My mother painted when i was young and encouraged drawing and painting and handcrafting in all forms and my father, the photographer, gave me my first camera at age 8. As a result, i have been a lifelong student of both mediums. Formal training of my eye and technique has been with the wonderful Pacific NW painter teachers, Stan Capon and Edi Olson.
i hope you will enjoy these images as much as i enjoyed their creation.
