I've already painted some gourds earlier on in my
100 Paintings in 100 Days Challenge,
thought this would make a great addition with the
soft, almost antique look of this one that is shaped like a
little pumpkin. The colors are so subtle, and so
much fun to work with.
We have had so much rain this year that strange things
have been happening in my own garden. A seed
from a gourd rooted in my compost pile, and the vine
has grown so much that it is crawling up towards
the top of a large pine tree...and is almost there!
Sort of reminds me of that movie 'Kudzu', where
a vine takes over the world...
If you would like to see more of my work,
interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.
