Pumpkin Paintings


Pumpkin patch fever is in the air round my house….I’ve been trying out new pumpkin dishes. My family has sampled them, happily.  I posted a few weeks ago that my daughter moved into the house directly behind my house…That has more advantages than disadvantages. I love having my grandchildren come by after school and having them spend time with me. The best part is I don’t have to leave home at all!

Today was spent painting things for my booth. Pumpkins were the order of the day.   It was so pleasant outside that I took my little easel outside on the porch and painted all day.  I painted 5 canvases and cooked breakfast, lunch and supper…. Oh yes, I mopped the kitchen and loaded the dishwasher and washed a couple loads of laundry. And painted all day.  Yes, I took my vitamins.

After school Stella stopped back by and rather than going home with her mom she decided to stay and paint. I gladly took a break! She did great.


She painted her own pumpkin….

  1. Hi Renee, I’m visiting from UBC. You have a lovely daughter, and so nice to make homemade Halloween decorations. I always prefer those to the store bought kind. That reminds me that soon I’ll have to start thinking about decorating the house. Have a great rest of the week and nice to meet you. 🙂

    • Oh, me too, Veronica. I much prefer to make my own than store bought…thank you for stopping by! Nice to meet you, too.

  2. Hi Renee,
    I love how the Universe took care of you by sending Stella across to give a break!
    Lovely pictures and very inspiring 🙂

    • Hello Nichole, thank you! The Lord worked it out just perfectly for my daughter to get the house behind mine! Truly, it was a miracle that, looking back, we can see how it unfolded into hour laps…Bless you in Germany today! My mother’s grandparents came here from Germany and they settled in a town in South Carolina that they named Valhalla, because it reminded them of Germany. Nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a joy it must be to have your daughter and grandchildren so close, and to be able to share your creativity with them!
