Still Life, Dynamic Work

I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “less is more”.  Kate’s still life study of a pumpkin is a great illustration of that expression.  The color is limited, the shapes are simple, and the composition straight forward, but it is fully packed with pumpkiny energy!

Here’s a challenge for you:

Imagine this pumpkin, in this composition, without a stem, or with a stem that isn’t diagonal and is blunt at the top.  How would that simple change effect the way we see this work?
