Happy Halloween!  The tradition of pumpkin carving continues this year (my 4th year, going strong!) with the Mexican Skull carved Halloween pumpkin.

This year, I headed out to the Swan Trails Farm pumpkin patch with my friend Alla and her two nephews.  What fun!  We picked pumpkins, watched a duck race, ate kettle corn and got lost in a corn maze (but found our way out).

With my pumpkin safe at home, I decided on the Mexican Skull pattern, carving some parts of it and using acrylic paint to highlight and draw the rest.  Spooky, yet beautiful, if I say so myself.

The Artist joined in on the fun, painting the skull on the opposite side of the carving (there is still work to be done there, so the final painting will be revealed later).

Happy Halloween to you all!
