A couple of weeks ago one of my co-workers brought in some pumpkins for whoever wanted them, from her garden.
I took a couple and then went to see what paint we had left over at the clinic.
Mostly it was just odd wall paint colors but I found some white and black and a green.
So I painted the pumpkins for some Halloween decoration for the clinic.

Then last Friday a woman came in and wanted to buy them.
I told her they had been out there for a few weeks and might be getting "soft" and I wasn't sure how much longer they might last.
Then she asked if I could paint one special for her, of her dog.
She was standing there with a nice looking Weimaraner and I could envision how easy it would be, so I agreed to do it.
Then she pulled out her phone and showed me the dog she wanted me to paint.
I still said OK and that I would have it ready for her to pick up this Monday, today.
So here's her pumpkin -

She was happy, so I was happy.
I painted another pumpkin for our employee pumpkin carving/painting contest.
I'm no good at carving so of course I painted mine.
I thought I had my pumpkin secured in my vehicle but then I heard it rolling around and when I got to work, it was laying against the car door.
Yeah, kinda got dinged up! Oh well....
Here's my pumpkin - 
(I suppose it's obvious that this one is mine! LOL!)

i LOVE art like that. like yours and hers.
dang it girl. you need a PR person ... you could make money painting pumpkins like that at Halloween! but then... it would be just another demanding job.

Painted pumpkins....yay! a great change from the carved them all but I'm a black cat girl so that's my favourite....although my rescue cat is a tabby & White....but she needed a home so here she is.

Tammy, You are too kind!
but thank you so much!
I will definitely check out that blog!
I wish I had someone to do PR for me. I HATE doing stuff like that. When people ask me "how much?" I always feel awkward.
Thanks again for the kind words!
