The Great Pumpkin

Last week I took a little day trip to Philadelphia. I visited the Barnes Foundation and wandered around town with my sketchbook. My kind of day. I love going to the Reading Market when I am in Philly. This time there was a massive pumpkin patiently resting on a scale waiting for the day of its grand weigh-in and, sadly, ultimate fate as a delicious pumpkin pie..maybe I'm editorializing a bit there, but that's what I'd do with a giant pumpkin!
