Oh and by the way my name is Roberta, thanks for responding. I do have photos of Ron's gourd art but I'm not sure how to go about placing on the site. Is there a tutorial or something that guides you thru the process?
Thank you Darlene, First, let me say that this is Gary's wife, Kathy, responding. As many in the Wisconsin Gourd Society know, Gary does not use the computer. In fact, I just told him minutes ago that I had signed him up for this sight. He is busy now but will be joining me here at the computer to view all of the great gourd pictures of the work that you and the others have done. This is a fantastic site to share ideas with others. We do not have a web site at this time but if I ever figure out how to set one up we would like to have one.
Darlene - Thanks for the kind words to me! I'm so excited to have found this site. Must say, I loved your "doll" with the northwest indian influence. I did a Haida Indian box and I know how those extremely difficult those patterns are!
Thank you Darlene for making me fell welcome.
I am ne at this and it will take me awhile to get it down pat.
I love seeing other gourd art and I will be adding some of my as soon as I can.
Thank you once again.
Appreciate the welcome Darlene and I am already enjoying all the wonderful work displayed in the photos. My mind is reeling with ideas. I am relatively new to working with gourds but I have found that it is a great way to express my creativity!
we have a Propp family in Rockford IL. are you related. I'm new at this. Can't find my picture. I have one on facebook.
I harvested about 4000 gourds this year. I now have about 20,000 pkg of gourd seed ready. My website www.homestead.com/jacksgrainandgourds/index.html
Thank you Darlene. How awesome to have a resource like this. Your work is amazing and beautiful and I love watching what you come up with next. I added a few of my pyrograph work. Here is to wonderful, exciting and joy filled 2010.
