Starry Halloween

For the benefit of goblins worldwide, I thought that I'd post another pumpkin from the carving contest we displayed not long ago. Here is a true artistic effort--this local artist actually recreated the famous Van Gogh painting "Starry Night," (plus an ear in a nod to the painter), in the hour allotted. She did a fantastic job, I thought.


  1. It's fun to see how the artist reproduced the painting on a curved surface.

    Must send my son to this post- for Halloween he dressed as the Van Gogh self-portrait with pipe and bandaged ear. Vincent never goes out of style!

  2. This "carving" contest sets a high standard. Next year, I'll crank it up a notch. My "Mad Pump-Man" was good, but some of these people where doing entries beyond belief.

    (What's more, the painter shown here got her entry done in an hour flat.)

  3. One hour is amazing!
    Am a big fan of Mad Men & liked the Mad Pump-Man, too!
