Last weekend after church I decided to head out to one of my local favorite parks to paint my pumpkin from the pumpkin patch.  My sister was kind enough to come along and take pictures of my outfit and me painting the pumpkin for all of you.  I painted my first pumpkin last year with a group of friends and one of my sisters and had so much fun doing it!  The process is less messy than the traditional carving of pumpkins and the results (at least for me) are more along the lines of what I envision in my head.  Being an artist I enjoy having the control of using sharpies and a paint brush.  I didn’t have any special game plan when I started painting my pumpkin, I decided to just have fun coming up with inspirational words and tribal patterns to put on it.  It’s not the best pumpkin in the world, but I enjoyed painting it and spending some time relaxing in my favorite park.  Have you ever tried painting a pumpkin?  How did it turn out?  Did you prefer carving them or painting them?
