Thank you Sue!  I live in between Harrisburg and Gettysburg.  Love your details on feathers.

Hi Sue thanks for friending me.  I hope you love this site as much as I do.

you definately succeeded with the wood look on the owl bowl.
I used to use leather dyes too but have been using memories ink dyes and love them. I understand they will hold their color, but I haven't been using them long enough to be a witness to that. I just trust Maria Dellos' word for it.
You know, I'm still not adverse to using leather dyes as long as I tell people to treat their gourd art like fine art and keep it out of direct sunlight. I have gourds I made many years ago and used leather dyes. I kept them out of direct sunlight and they still look the same as when they were made.
I enjoy using good acrylics too.

LOL, yep I know you can't breathe out, in or hope the dog doesn't go running by when working with feathers ( small separate feathers).
I honestly hope it's not your last try because your first is so pretty.
Thank you for your encouraging words about my gourds, too. It's always so appreciated ♥

i understand. Is it EVER going to quit snowing! i do wood carving, mostly relief. The only carving I have done on gourds is power carving around the buck for instance, not much else.I should check into some other venues for my work, i keep thinking I will someday have enough to go to a craft show of some sort.I get soo busy in the summer with horses and gardening etc. I don't get much done on the art then.Have you gone to any craft shows?

Hi Sue, I have sold a few things, not many. Some of my things are at an alpaca farm and store near here, lots of interest but no sales. I also do woodcarving.

Hi Sue, I went to the Tucson Quilt Fair about 2 weeks ago and saw this quilt with horned lizards all over it. I thought the idea might transfer well to a gourd. After I sketched the lizards on the gourd, I decided to add the filigree and stones as it progressed. The total time to produce probably took me a little over 25 hours stretched over a 2 week time period. Thanks for taking an interest, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out!
