"The Great Pumpkin" is a piece who came alive during this Autumn.
The story behind it is from an old Sheaves legend who says,
"On the very night of Halloween,
put a pumpkin under a tree.
If leaves turn to candy corn,
a true pumpkin king is born."
I wanted to paint the festive magical feeling of the season, mixed with American traditions and Scandinavian folklore, and I am glad it came out how it did.
