Painted Pumpkins

When I first moved to the United States, twelve years ago—can’t believe it has been so long already—I was exposed to the American art of pumpkin carving and decorating. Once I painted my first pumpkin, I realized I didn’t want for it to go to waste and be forgotten. So I started buying foam pumpkins to paint them with acrylics. Since then, every fall I paint at least one pumpkin—usually around three or four. Now, I have quiet a collection lying around the house all year long. Here are a few pictures of some of my special pumpkins.
