The Painted Pumpkins of Denise A. Wells

 

 

unicornThese wonderful pumpkins were painted by Denise A. Wells, a Native American (Yankton Sioux Tribe - S. Dakota), who has been painting pumpkins since 1997. "When it was suggested by my former boss, (thanx Karen!) I thought it was a waste of time until I got unbelievable feedback from people (especially children) and a new yearly hobby was born. I only use acrylic paints and have done up to 25 and 30 pumpkins during a season. I have a friend help me (D. Arrow) get them painted and out the door. I donated painted pumpkins to the Headstart in White River and now here in Yankton shortly after we moved here. I have told many people over the years how much fun they are and thats a lot of the motivation for doing so much work on something that will eventually spoil.....one customer once asked me how long they last and I just said ' when I see a Chia Pet growing on the back of the pumpkin....its time to chuck it!!
I also draw and paint and keep myself outta trouble that way! The Unicorn is my personal fave every year and of course Spongebob-he's such a cutie! "
