How Pumpkins Grow Sign

I was asked by the owner of a local pumpkin patch to paint a 4′ x 4′ sign showing the stages of a pumpkin’s growth. It will be used to educate the groups of school kids who visit this time of year. The owner provided the primed plywood and a few suggestions for the layout.

That blank board was a bit intimidating. I’ve never done anything that large. Thank goodness for inspiration found on Pinterest! I sketched a few motifs and played with the layout.

The painting was easy once I settled on the design and got it transferred to the board.

I was pleased with how it came out and the folks at the pumpkin patch seemed well pleased. I hope the kids will enjoy looking at it and learning about pumpkins.
