Ever since last weekend’s Halloween Party, I’ve been finding more Halloween treats I would love to make. It’s funny how that works, once you don’t really have a reason to make things, ideas start popping up!

Pumpkin Topiary Painting
Sticking with the Halloween theme, I thought I would share my Halloween Pumpkin creation of the year. Instead of the traditional pumpkin carving, I actually did some pumpkin painting at a local painting “studio”. It’s kind of like a paint your won pottery place, but with a blank canvas and a patient instructor that guides the class through each step of the process.
So – what started as a white canvas, turned into a black canvas…then the pumpkins started to take shape :
At this stage, I was still worried about how this was going to turn out. Adding the shading and then finally the curly-queues. Finally – a painting I am proud of!
It might not be pumpkin carving, but these pumpkins won’t rot on the front porch. :) Finally, a parting shot of my fellow artist, Malinda!
