OK, how’s this for cheesy? :) I was inspired by the paint your pumpkin challenge on the Daily Paintworks site. It seemed a fitting way to pay tribute to our lonely little German jack-o-lantern before he got chucked in the compost bin.

November is Art Every Day Month! I’ll be posting a new small painting here each and every day. After they have had time to dry (a couple weeks), the original paintings will also appear in my Etsy shop.

    Jul! Great to see you this year. AEDM is getting to be quite the reunion on a yearly basis! I, for one, LOVE your pumpkin. It’s the art where you find it thing and that makes me smile. Looking forward to your contributions which are always so lovely. I definitely be back!

    Even though I’m not doing Art Everyday, your paintings have inspired me to drag out the Boesner bag I have hiding in my closet, and start painting again. Thanks!

    Thanks, all!

    @eNVie – Glad you are painting again. Can’t wait to see your new work!

    @Tammy – Nice to see you again this year, too. It’s like some kind of AEDM alumni association. :)
