So first off while shopping for produce I fell in love with all the small sugar pumpkins. I of course couldn't just pick one. I had a (or at least what I thought) was an awesome idea - put out a cup full of sharpies and hopefully all the artistic people I live with would be inspired to create a pumpkin masterpiece.
So far it hasn't gone exactly as planned. The two most artistic males in the house clearly will settle for nothing less than carving (which is too early to do - carved pumpkins get gross within days). I think the man-childs (my eldest son and his best friend) are more inspired by sharp dangerous tools than by a simple sharpie. Well boo on them
My youngest more musically inclined child went with a theme
I'm still trying to inspire
Wish me luck - there are still 3 more naked little pumpkins left
This one is still a work in progress
But this one is finished
On another note.....
I'm working on an amoeba series - just some little paintings based off a painted sketch I did about a year ago
