carving artist in the house

Halloween has become the second most decorated holiday in the US.

A prime item to decorate for Halloween is the pumpkin.

Just discovered - we have an extraordinaire pumpkin carver in the house - our daughter. So far she’s done two pumpkins this Halloween but she might do more.

Here’s some pictures she took of her work. She also knows some amazing photo techniques for capturing two views within one photo without any digital manipulation (last photo).







Happy Halloween

Here's a post from last Halloween - link.

She's quite the carver! I especially like the pumpkin with the haunted house carved into it. Carving relief designs isn't easy!

We got out of the habit for a few years, but we used to carve 20 pumpkins every Halloween. We always tried to incorporate whatever movies and television shows were popular. The trick or treaters always loved looking at and identifying them all. We did about 6 last year. Hopefully we'll do a few more than that this year.

WONDERFUL JOB. I love them both. She could sell them they are so good! Once I used a power drill to drill a whole Mickey Mouse head made with holes of various diameters. Pumpkins are fun. W.C.C.

thanks she thought about using a Dremel tool but ended up getting wood carving tools.

WOW, those pumpkins are awesome!

I bought 20 pumpkins for a gaggle of kids to carve at Godson's birthday party next week. Maybe your daughter would like to stop by and show 'em how it's done. Pretty please :-)

Cheers, jj

You have a Michaelangelo in your midst. She may be the next famous artist.

Those are really good. I'm actually thankful not to be on pumpkin carving duty in my family.
