White gourd - Apple Orchard - Fall painting

I'm feeling very "Fall-ish". 
While visiting the Apple Orchard/Farm, I walked by this gourd sitting by itself and I liked the quietness of the colors.  So I snapped a photo and went home and painted it.  The hardest thing to paint was the hefty timber that the gourd was sitting next to but I am pleased with the result. 
This is a smaller "in-between" painting, it measures 8 x 10.  (I painted it between two other more involved projects.)
I really enjoy painting things of the season and my next "in-between" painting will probably be an orange pumpkin.  I have a few smaller ones in an arrangement on my dining table, so before the warmth gets to them and they become nasty I'll make one pose for me.
