Gourds are good
With my sister.
Mom got them. Gourds are plums that got turned into stones. And then you can paint them.
It's hard to paint because you have to keep going in circles.
My arm got tired.
I painted a bunch. Here they are.
This is "The Rainbow"
This is "The Garden." See the flowers?
This is called "The Squeezy Pumpkin"
My favorite is "Desert Lizard"
This last one is called "Hot Air Balloon." You know why?
I am really enjoying all your artwork! Great job on the gourds. I especially like the hot air balloon!
Are you going to keep your gourds for maracas?
Did you know that there is a kind of gourd that is shaped a little like a snake? Well part of it is, anyway. You can see a picture here.
And I really like Heather's idea to use your gourds for maracas!
You had a beautiful day to paint outside - don't you just love summer??
I leave for a couple days vacation and you turn into an internet star.
Just so you know: I thought your paintings were so good I told your Dad this would happen. Keep having fun!
Did you know that if you drill a hole in your gourds, shake out the seeds, varnish them and hang them from a tree, birds will nest in them?
Just make sure the hole is small so Sparrows or Finches nest in it. You don't want anymore Blackbirds nesting in your backyard.
I wonder with all of the traffic you've been getting over here if you could work out some sort of art supply sponsorship with a company.
Just a suggestion.
Keep the art comin'!
Redondo Beach, CA
Your gourds are beautiful - Squeezy Pumpkin is my favorite.
When I was a kid, we made birdhouses out of gourds. A bird would be lucky to nest in a gourd so lovely as the ones you've painted!
Heather Meadows' idea of maracas sounds like fun, too.
Keep up the art!
able to see colours where non are.
thank you thomas. :)
for reminding me what a child is like.
Dinosaurs are the coolest critters!
Keep up the good work!
