I am an artist, but I haven't done so in a very long time. Truth be told, I am petrified to begin again. Life is so much easier not trying to figure out the world’s problems by merely making a mark on canvas. So when Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s chosen non-profit to support, Sunshine Kids decided on a decorating pumpkins fundraiser, I jumped in.
The Pumpkin Palooza, as they called it, a creative endeavor would help me get pass the fear of being an artist again and support a great cause.
Googling images, I was struck by the amazing feats of pumpkin carving. Like a relief printing process the more you carve into the surface the brighter the image. Poke completely through a pumpkin and the candle light shines brightest. An exquisite pumpkin carving of the Starry Night by Van Gogh took me in. Could I, maybe? I bought a jumbo pumpkin and decidedly thought I would carve. It occurred to me, asa new Realtor, to carve something real estate - a haunted house! This is my individual participant fundraiser.
