Pumpkin Paintings

Apparently record numbers are going to spend record amounts on Halloween this year.  While some may like to dress up in really weird costumes, others will want to decorate their home in themes relating to Halloween! ;)

Two words promptly popped into my head - pumpkin paintings - and this is the post that was the result! ;)

So who else is also painting pumpkins?
