"One of my favorite songs too. Thats what inspired the gourd.  If you have ever seen the video for that song, there are two little girls dancing & flowing to the song, so I wanted flowing dancers too."

"Thanks Jana for your kind words.  I lightly dry brush watered down paint in crosshatch stroke, to give it that linen fabric look.  Works best on dark background.  Lot of trial & error too."

"This is beautiful.  This is a line from one of my favorite songs.  Great sentiment and way to live.   The dancers look like they could just float off the gourd."

beaded fish

"Thank you for the kind words, Cheryl. The beads are embeded one at a time in a mix of bees wax and pine pitch (beadswax) which is spread on the gourd.  It's called Huichol style beading. Time consuming but relaxing for me and I enjoy it.…"

Thank you Heather for your kind words. Painting has always been my first love, but got hooked on beading and have recently done some woodburning. It's amazing you can do so many techniques with gourds. Don't get to conventions much, not too many in our area here in Indiana. We do have a great gourd community here and in Ohio which is close.

Sandra your painting is wonderful. I have been taking lessons from one of our gourd members who is a wonderful painter. She has gotten me totally hooked on it. Are you going to the decorative painting convention in Vegas in feb? or do y ou go closer to home?
