September Art Video and Inktober

Day 5 of Inktober is a drawing of my pumpkin tree. The tree branches are made from wires and the pumpkin cups are thin metal. I think you may be able to put tea lights in them but I've always been afraid. It's very pretty at night when the light hits. The pumpkins sparkle! I drew it with my favorite Playinum Carbon pen and colored with Windsor and Newton half pans watercolors and Koi watercolors (I was too lazy to mix my own black.) 

And here is my September art video! I used Beethoven's Sonata Pathetique. It is one of my favorite Beethoven sonatas. When I first took piano lessons as an adult in Michigan, this was one of the pieces I learned to play. My hands are small so some of this is difficult to play as I had to stretch my hands. I hope you enjoy the video!


  1. I love the pumpkin tree. I have never been hugely into decorating because of a lack of time, but my mother really loved things like this. Your pumpkin tree brought my mother to mind.

  2. I think this may be the first year when all three kids will not be trick-or-treating. But I still like to decorate and greet the kids coming to our house. I hope you were remembering happy memories!
