Nancy, love your owls and other works. I just started making some "folk art" looking barn owls myself and then I see yours. I'm going to mark yours as favorites because you have really caught/made them perfect (not to copy them just enjoy them). We have 17 different North American owls I believe, love to study subjects before I work on them., many different types and shapes to "play" with.
I've made saltbox house pins and log cabin also, love your windows!
I have started a Kansas Gourders page. Please join us. Just go to "Groups" and join. I am hoping to get some Kansas gourders interested in sharing ideas and information. Hope to see you in the new Kansas Gourders group. Rhonda
Thank you, Nancy. So far I've only sold to friends and family and word of mouth. I do have a few at the Oz Winery in Wamego--they are friends and I made a few special ones for them. I've sent a number of gourds to places back east via my sister, but have yet to do much here in KS. I hope someday, you and Cheryl and I can arrange to meet sometime soon. Rhonda
Nancy, I was just in Topeka last weekend. Always good to meet another Kansan. We are just going to HAVE to all get together somewhere central sometime. I love your work. You have a wonderful imagination and carry it out wonderfully.
Thank you, Nancy for "friending" me. I can't believe I didn't do this earlier. There are so few Kansasns here. I love your latest houses and Rhyme pins. Very cleaver. Your use of wire with the gourds is wonderful.
Your work is just beautiful. I see I have a lot to learn. never knew you could do any thing like this on gourds. I grow bird house gourds here in northern mn just to hang in the trees and around. but nothing like I have seen on this site.oh I have so many questions.Don't know where to start.I have ordered and got a box of gourds from welburn farms,just looking at them, as if i am afraid to start on them.got my burning tool,dremmel and my air spray paint gun.I am on face book.if you would like to take a look vivian pearson art work,would love to have you as a friend, hugs vivian
Hi, Nancy, I love your fairies. They are precious. I am new to this sight and love it. Have you ever heard of the magazine, Art Doll Quarterly? You should submit a photo to them. They are always looking for new and original dolls. My gourd dolls will be in the spring, Feb 1 issue. Send me an email and I will forward info. Look forward to hearing from you. Norma
