Teresa, I'm so glad you decided to join our KS group. One of these days after the first of the year, we're going to try and organize a meeting to share some ideas. You and I probably live the closest to each other. Hopefully, we can get others to come this way.
Thank you so much Teresa and I LOVE what you do with your gourds! The butterfly gourd is my favorite!! So elegant! I'd love to have you come join us at our Washington State Gourd Society as a teacher and/or vendor. That butterfly gourd would make for a wonderful class, as would your other pieces of art. Please check out our website at www.wagourdsociety.org under the heading festival to get our festival information. It will be held July 15-18, 2010. Hope you can come. Email me at DynvaArt@aol.com with any questions :-)
Not sure if I replied to your comment in the right place earlier, so I'll copy and pase it here just incase. I'm afraid of replying back to people and them not getting it...so, here it is again:
"Oh, thank you Teresa...
I like to think of gourds as sculpture. So much goes into the thinking process and how to enhance the natural beauty of each piece. As you know, much more goes into creating a piece than people realize. A stone sculptor once said, the piece I created was already there, I just released it from the stone. Something like that... We just release our own thoughts and feelings in our gourd work and enhance them visually. Thank you for the compliment! Tony"
