Here is a sketch of a pumpkin.  Actually, it's a sketch of a pumpkin candle.  I have two of them and they come out annually for Halloween, but I can't bring myself to actually use them...  This Halloween we're staying in a giving out candy.  There are a lot of neighborhood kids around, and even if there aren't that many this year, I bought candy that I like...

I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in October.  This is day 31.

This is a rough sketch.  You may see some of my finished paintings at if you'd like.
