Pumpkin Madness

"The fields lay fallow. The pumpkin harvest had been exceptional this year. People had come and gotten the best pumpkins to take home to carve into Jack O Lanterns. Only the small and lopsided fruits remained. A lone crow landed on an orange gourd and cawed loudly into the still, moonlit night. Nothing answered."

In the 'better late then never' mode, I attempt to catch up with the rest of you. LOL. I finished the last of my traveling unpacking and putting away yesterday. I have a vague idea on my NaNoWriMo novel. I signed up for PiBoIdMo. (Picture Book Idea Month) Plus, I have a book to illustrate that final art is due to the publisher on February 21, 2010. So I have enough projects to keep me more than busy for the next month. Hee. One of these years I'll learn to simplify.

Beautiful words to go with your beautiful pumpkin! Great work. Totally understand about the time and the work. It's good that you are working. Take care.

I admire the true dimensions of these pumpkins. My art is so cartoony and I never really achieve spooktastic depths. These are so ominous and natural in their "lopsidedness." Great work.

Yes, yes, yes. I love the shapes and texture. And it sounds like your life is full of excitement. As long as it is the good kind it's all good.
