white vine pumpkin
One clear memory from the 1980s Anne of Green Gables films is the image of Anne embellishing the puritanical chalkboard with simple line drawings of vines. I was mesmerized by the fluidity of the motion of her hand and how such simple illustrations could elevate a stark quotation and bring beauty.
Vines and leaves have always been a favorite for me because of this to draw. From covering entire school notebooks with foliage, to floral wreaths, to my latest foray with acrylic paint and papier-mâché pumpkin forms.
These pumpkins celebrate my beloved memory of Anne bringing beauty to the mundane with high contrast fronds painted atop a solid base color. But they also celebrate my love of the timeless beauty and joy of blue and white.
