Pumpkins and Cranberries!

Happy Halloween everyone! Here are some images taken last weekend at the Keene, NH annual Pumpkin Festival. They didn't break the record this year (for the most lit jack-o-lanterns in one place), but it was still a lot of fun. As usual, there were lots of people, lots of yummy food, and, of course, lots of pumpkins.



My sisters and I contributed these three jack-o-lanterns.

Here's a little pumpkin pattern I've finished recently. It reminds me a little of the Charlie Brown "Great Pumpkin" cartoon.


With Halloween season ending, pretty soon I'll be gearing up for Thanksgiving, and I just love to bake pies. As sort of a little warm-up, I recently baked these cranberry tarts. I thought they turned out kind of cute. I've included a recipe below. Enjoy!

Happy Autumn!

The air is getting crisper every day. We had our first frost this past week. Despite the cold, I have to say that autumn is my favorite season of the year, and New England is the perfect place to be right now. Here are some of my favorite fall images I've photographed this year so far. The first three were taken at an orchard in Vermont when I went with my family to go apple picking recently. The fourth is typical of the beautiful scenery one can enjoy while through NH and VT right now. The last picture is the view from my own window, looking out at the end of my driveway.








Here are some little doodles and ideas from my sketchbook inspired by these beautiful images.
