Choosing Gentle Over Gory

Pam Leno has no background in art but has carved pumpkins for about 20 years now. The style of the Olympia, Washington-based Leno tends to be "a little more gentle, not the gory, creepy stuff," she says. "I'm working on a 20-pound pumpkin now for the Everett Children's Museum. It's a sleeping older gentleman and a younger child tucked up under it." A favorite pumpkin was one she did at a fair right after 9/11. "I did a 700-pound pumpkin, and the man who had grown it was a firefighter so I carved the scene of the firefighters lifting the American flag."
