My pumpkin protector

I don't draw only pretty buildings. Sometimes I draw things of lasting spiritual significance, like this portrait of Ms. Pumpkin. She belongs to the season and is a friendly presence all through October. While coloring this drawing I was listening to a particularly scary piece of ambient music and the Pumpkin was there, as she is on countless doorsteps, to guide the good souls returning and scare away the evil spirits. And you know my fondness for Orange. Then after her Halloween duties are over, Ms. Pumpkin goes to the nearest bar and gets smashed.
