Pumpkin Head & Francine

Here's my second pen & ink drawing for Halloween. This work, which I call 'Pumpkin Head', came from old photos I had of decorations on my parent's porch, and what a trip down memory lane this one has been. The Calico cat is Francine - actually she was my sister's cat when we were growing up and she had a natural mean look.

Francine loved my sister - it was just the rest of the family she could have done without. Francine is long gone, and I now live with a whole new 'Fur Family'. No one in this current batch has the evil eye, although Ember (our oldest male) is having to adjust to kittens in the house. He just looks disgusted!

You can see 'Pumpkin Head' on various products in our new Cafepress store - here's an
Art Tile Coaster as an example.

The trees around here are just starting to show some fall color & we actually had one night last week in the high 30's. I have not had a frost yet which is nice as I get to enjoy my Cosmos in the garden a little while longer.

My eBay store has prints & greeting cards of this image & others.
My Cafepress store has more samples on my 2nd new website.
