I want to take this time to thank everyone who’s followed my art journey over the years. It has, over time, taken various twists and turns (and even a few hard lefts and reversals.) I love looking back over what I’ve accomplished and somewhat stunned: I did THAT? But throughout it all, there are some of you who’ve been there on almost every step… encouraging, suggesting, helping and enabling.

This is a small, white, real pumpkin that I tangled on during October 2010. It wasn’t easy to do because the squash was heavily coated in some kind of wax. I used Pigma Micron pens, but they tended to stay wet a long time. Also, the ink tended to bead up in spots so that when it dried, there were darker circles.
