"Before Midnight" - SOLD


It took several tries to get this right. And it was the reflected light at the bottom of the pumpkin that was the hardest. It is a challenge to get it light enough but not TOO light ... AND the right color.

Yep, me too! Reflective light on certain colors is sooo hard to capture. Congratulations on accomplishing it so well Carol.

Are you sure this isn't the pumpkin that turned into Cinderella's coach? I think it's still infected with some fairy godmother magic dust and that's why it's so beautiful.
