Several years ago I admired this Harvest Moon pumpkin in a page I had torn out of Country Living magazine and stored in my Fall idea file. So, eventually I decided to try to copy it. The original is charcoal on a real white pumpkin as you can see below.

Here is my pumpkin below

Just a little paint turned a plain white pumpkin into something I had admired for years!
