Pumpkins are Orange

Painting of a green pumpkin

©2014 Carol Gilman

This is a detail of a painting I created in kindergarten.  I was lucky to have a thoughtful, open-minded, creative teacher who met me where I was and who  didn’t say “Carol, pumpkins are orange not green”, but encouraged me instead to use my imagination, be myself, and create with the colors that came to me.
