Nearly every autumn, my artist of a sister (Carlynne) paints a beautiful scene or landscape on a pumpkin, and my parents proudly display said pumpkin in the front entry.
Well, now Carlynne is in Ottawa, and it’s impractical for her to create an artistic pumpkin and ship it to Alberta. I know my parents love this little tradition, so I thought I’d do my part (since I live less than 2 blocks away and the word impractical is not in my vocabulary). I’ve painted a vegetable or two in my day and I quite enjoy it. I’m no breath-taking-landscape-painting-artist, but I DO have an uncanny ability to paint googly eyes on giant vegetables- I’m somewhat of a prodigy that way.
What can I say…. I tried!
