Fall Painting{Our Pumpkin Patch}

fall painting

All you need is a canvas.

Let your paint brush guide you.

Mix colors to get the color that speaks to you.

I took 3 different shades of orange and a bit of brown and it was then I knew what color my pumpkins should be.


I then outlined the pumpkins with a sharpie. I love the look of that for some reason.

Added the names but you could always use vinyl.



I am not an artist and never claim to be.

I don’t think artists use a sharpie.

I am a creator. I grab a paintbrush and enjoy the freedom to create what is on my heart.

The CSI kids are in my heart. My family is in my heart so with fall on my mind, I combined the two.

Who is in your pumpkin patch?

Always remember to feel the freedom to Create, Share and Inspire!

    Great post! I am always hesitant to paint anything unless its pretty much done for me (then what is the point lol), but I think I need to give your method a try and let the brush guide me. Also I shouldn’t so afraid of what the outcome will look like. LOL 🙂

    I am no artist but I so love this idea. I would love a pumpkin patch of my family and hang in my kitchen around Halloween.

    This is wonderful! I feel the same way – I’m not an artist either. I always love using sharpie to outline my work!

    Great painting! I think it’s art 🙂 My pumpkin patch has me, my son, our two cats and dogs, and my parents.

    This is SO cute! And, I’m pretty sure “artists” use whatever they want 🙂 Love the effect it adds to the pumpkins!

    Oh my gosh that is so cute! I don’t have a family of my own, but I bet my mom would love it if I made one of these as a gift for my parents!
