More on gourds... this is one in progress and no, it isn't a giant salt shaker. I have a reason for the holes on top. At this stage, I'm adding hundreds of small circles, courtesy of a black Sharpie. Each circle is different and I try to vary the sizes. It's almost like doodling and I find it therapeutic. I was thinking of adding a raised dot of color in the center of each one, but that was way to much OC. Eventually I will have the gourd covered with circles and then it's time for a wash coat of some Lascaux Perlacryl color...but first I have to attach the hammered copper accents (8). The holes on top will then be filled with another accent...


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! These are gorgeous! I really do love them! Do you sell them? Are you showing them in a gallery?

  2. You are most kind. I'm just creating right now, for the fun of it and to keep my mind focused on something positive.

    Some of the other ones are on my other blog...

    I know a place nearby that would LOVE to carry them!!!

  4. Really? Maybe I'll give it a try...

  5. OK, OK...I will, but which ones? I had no idea how hard it would be to 'sell' something you created. Ima, I'm sure you have felt this dilemma... how do you deal with it?
