Great Pumpkin Gift

The day before Halloween, one of my young helpers came by the house with a gift for me. Of course, she called first and teased me by telling me she had a Halloween gift for me-one that she said she made just for me. Of course I was intrigued. I mean, who doesn't want a Halloween gift made just for them?

I really didn't have any clue what it could be, so when she showed up with this painting and unveiled it with a flourish, I was pumped!
Since I took one photo of it with the flash and one without, I posted both, to give you an idea of what it looks like.

Honestly, though, the pictures don't do it justice. It looks far better in person. I plan to hang it in my home office, once I finish that project.

This young lady did some great work, and reminded me why it is so important to donate to the high school art department. She's a sophomore at the high school, and if this painting is any indication, an artist to watch in the future.
