CREATIVE TUESDAY ~ THEME "PUMPKIN"

Mr. Toast has chosen "PUMPKIN" for are theme this time.  My love of baking has influenced some of my painting.  Last time I shared my Apple Pie, and today, if you notice my "header" you will see my watercolor of a Pumpkin Pie.


But, on a LIGHTER SIDE, I will share some of my "FUN PUMPKINS" this week.  I call the one above "The Pumpkin Inspector".

I have always loved "Scarecrows".  This one certainly doesn't scare anybody, not even the crows!!

 
I call this one "Trio plus One"....Guess who is the "ONE".  HaHa.

 
I don't know if you believe in Ghosts!  If you do, then this one sure has some good looking boots and socks and a PUMPKIN full of candy!! (Tee Hee)

  11. I always admire the 'freedom' you have in your drawings. It's hard for me to loosen up -- but it's coming slowly. Very cute anyway.

    1. In my painting and life, I'm not a "detail" person or a "perfectionist"..thus I'm a loosy goosy painter.

      I like the word freedom better, HaHa.

      Needless to say...you always have great illustrations for the theme.

  15. You take the biscuit on this one, dear Wanda! Or, err....pumpkin(s) on this collection. Each one is so darling, I can;t decide which one I like better. Well, you've certainly proved you love pumpkins. I can almost smell the pumpkin pies wafting from your kitchen. You really are the perfect grannie, I must say! Wonderful, Wanda. Very toasty lovely indeed! :)

    1. MMm..I thought you'd like my pumpkins. You were in my mind....and cutting loose and having fun was FUN. Wish you were closer...You'd have one of my pumpkin pies..

  16. This is beautiful! As a lover of all things Halloween, these all made me smile. The painting of the pumpkin pie is so well rendered and classic, and the cute little cartoon pumpkins/other characters have such great character design. Mr. Mouse was my favorite. Great job :-)
