I went to Chads Ford to stand my my pumpkin at The Great Pumpkin Carve,put on by The Chads Ford Historical society.
I brought with me a light to shine on my creation. I stood by my pumpkin greeted onlooker and answer questions.
I was so surprised how many people really like my pumpkin.
God had work a miracle, because the carve for me was a night mare.
It started with me sweating like some one was pouring a bucked of water over my head. I have been having trouble with bronchus , maybe that was part of the problem. I was sweating so bad It kept running into my glasses.
Second challenge ,the pumpkin was dry and very tough, i literately broke have my sculpting tools before I was even half way done.
Then after two hour ,the sun went down. Even with wear a light on my head I could hardly see my photo that was using as a reference .
Then I look up and who do I see but Jeff Wyeth and His wife standing in front of me. This was go timing for our brief visit,be cause I needed to step back and regroup,because i was about to through my hand up in the air and say I can't finish this.
Which I have always battle my way through every challenge I face in creating my works of art..
This carve took me about 5 1/2 hour to create.
Remember friend this is a live carve.
Now you probably in suspense, to find out what design I try to execute, that almost had me check into Norris town State Hospital?
Drum roll would you please?
