Harvest Day Impasto Kaleidoscope Art

I still have to add these and the next set to Zazzle for fun gifts especially those cool ties and cards for Father's Day, but they are all at Imagekind.  I'm making a few new sets of kaleidoscope artwork to celebrate my recent TBA at Zazzle for one of my Kaleidoscope ties. I didn't make a post for those but it was another series.  I've always been surprised by what is (and what isn't)  awarded a Today's Best Award.  In any case, it doesn't really matter since I'll design, paint, draw, or photograph what I want.  :-)

The Harvest Day Impasto Kaleidoscope Art is a series of geometric designs which were inspired by the colors on a photo of pumpkins resting against a leafless tree on a lawn I saw at Morguefile.  While the photo wasn't so amazing,  I really thought the color combination was great even though in the kaleidoscopes I didn't use the pumpkin orange. The impasto is the thick painterly texture added to these artworks. You really can see the texture in either preview, but it was added.
