Colorchallenge TuesdayOrange: Jack-o-lantern
Click on image to zoom
One year when we lived in the foothills of the Sierras in Northern California, I decided to try growing some giant pumpkins. We lived at the end of a rural road that bordered state wilderness land, and our summers had long days of sunlight. I bought special seeds for them and read about how they are grown. I prepared the mounds of dirt, fertilized and watered faithfully. I put a wire fence around them too. The leaves were huge and the vines were sprawling! The plants took up a lot of area and I had to enlarge the surrounding fence. They had grown to sizes that I could no longer pick up - over a hundred pounds!
One night, when the moon was full, a black bear came into our yard. I never saw him, but he left his mark. Each pumpkin had a big hole in the side surrounded my bites obviously made with huge teeth. On both sides of the holes were large claw scars - made when it gripped the pumpkin to take a bite! The bear had eaten out the insides of them all!
When I made this #ColorChallenge image for TuesdayOrange, I thought about that bear. I doubt even this Jack-o-Lantern face would have scared it.
This image was made with a camera inside a 3D sphere. I call this type of art Spherical Art.
