Pumpkin Moonshine

Pumpkin Moonshine
Recently came across Pumpkin Moonshine by Tasha Tudor while visiting The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, PA. Good stuff. Also check out The Christmas Cat which I almost couldn't resist purchasing but held out for a liverwurst sandwich in the cafe instead- sustenance prevailed. 

Also saw some emotionally disturbing seagull paintings by Jamie Wyeth. Blood, guts, gore, sex, and oversized violent seagulls emerging from a field of flames as if from an Armageddon based movie. So freak show and disturbing, the cute seaside charmer with his sheeps clothing ripped away and the true filthy wolf inside revealed. All of this was punched home by a manic and loud presentation by his niece Victoria Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth's only grandchild. We love the Wyeths, crazy fiends of Halloweenianna who blow up the ashen remains of their dead, not the bucolic barn loving Americana that you think you know- asshole!

I can only imagine that Tasha Tudor shared the Wyeths eccentricity!
