Painting a Pumpkin on Canvas

Decorating for Fall 

Fall is finally here. The days are getting shorter and the weather is cooling off. Now it is time to pull out the decorations for fall.

Decorating with Pumpkins

I love Fall decorations but I have to admit that I do not have many. The Fall season goes by so quickly. I love pumpkins and wanted to paint one or two onto a canvas to help my house look a little more like fall. I love the orange ones but I also love the white pumpkins (or gourds) too. I love how the white ones look with blue so I decided I would paint one with my favorite turquoise blue in the background. I had a 6"x 6" deep canvas so I used it because it can sit on a shelf.


DIY Pumpkin
I also decided to do a tutorial about how I painted it. If you are interested in seeing the tutorial and learning to paint one yourself, I shared the tutorial over on my Teaching blog here:

Fun and Fast
I enjoyed spending an afternoon painting and I am pleased with how it turned out. I hope to paint more pumpkins in in the future different colors and shapes. I will post a link here when that happens.

Now I need to work on my decorating game and add more fall decor to the porch!

Happy Fall Y'all!
