But after seeing gallery after gallery of fantastically
I spent part of this morning looking for silhouettes of Lady Justice to inspire a carving. Then my son and I went on our Great Pumpkin hunt. Unlike Christmas, when you can buy a tree on Christmas Day, stores don't stock an overabundance of pumpkins. We usually only carve one and paint or decorate mini pumpkins. But he and I decided we wanted our own this year, so we found ourselves store hopping just as the clouds opened up. We were starting to get discouraged when we found only a scraggly one at Jewel and just pie pumpkins left at Ultra. Thankfully, we had better luck in Riverside at Cermak Plaza, where, to my delight, there were plenty of pumpkin varieties, including this ghostly white pumpkin.
And that is how The Ghost of Lady Justice was born.
I've been asked on Twitter if she's a political statement. I've decided to let others interpret the piece as they wish.
