Warding Off Demons

"I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion." - Henry David Thoreau

This painting of a gourd standing guard is from my recent trip to Salem, MA. It is  7" x 5" oil on canvas panel. Please call me, email me, or click here if you'd like to buy this painting.

What sort of demons could this lonely pumpkin keep from entering this beautiful door? Cats in devil costumes looking for treats on Halloween, of course!

Trick or treat!
