"This is a really fun piece to hold in your hands, and explore all of its detail. It looked like the iron giant that turned into a steampunk pirate. Great job Suzy."

Thank you so much Suzy. I do many techniques but painting is not one of them. I know it takes a special talent for painting and wished I knew how. The gourd on my profile is one of my favorites. It won 1st place contemporary at the KACC southwest fine gourd art show in TX last year. Was surprised but so excited.

You do great work and thanks for sharing with all of us.

Hi Suzy,

I'm glad you enjoyed my work.  I do several different types of gourd work but my passion is the carving.  I do know one thing.....If we combined your painting skills with my carving, we would be an awesome duo!  Your painting is so great that your work looks like it is carved.  One of the last ones you put on this site of the Santa with the wooden pole in his hand looked like it was carved until I saw a front view of the Santa.  Keep up the good work.  Phyllis
