Hi Sandy!  I wanted you to know that I'm teaching an one-day Retreat in Lubbock, TX on August 10th.  I will be teaching two classes:  Faux Leather Tooling (burning and Chello Cactus Vase (power carving).  To view the photos/descriptions, please visit my Classes page on my web site (www.paintingsbyhellen.com).  If you have any questions, please email (hellenmmartin@gmail.com) or call (817-907-3320) me.  I will do my best to answer your questions and put you in touch with the coordinator.

Moriarty is 282 miles from Lubbock which is a 4 1/2 drive. 

I know money is tight for you... as with us all ... but didn't want to think I left your out.  Let me know how you are doing!!!!!!

Thanks, Sandy,  It has been a very hard adjustment for me losing my mom.  I want to still pick up the telephone and call to tell her something.  It has had an effect on my art work.  I find I just can't seem to get back into the gourds.  I do plenty of manual labor about the house and yard but not gourds.  I only did the curlew because it was a comissioned piece.  I do need to get back to gourding or I am going to have a skimpy booth at Wuertz.  The estate is all settled and the house is sold so now is the time to shift gears.  Thanks again, Sandy.

I agree on the "four walls" statement. So glad Spring is upon us. Right now I am recuperating from a "Meniere's/vertigo attack. Ugh... I hate this part of my life!

Yes the gourd is green, then filled with the dye, made from sandalwood soaked in water. ( a common sandalwood, not the rare one)

I will be posting more photos of the progression as it dyes, takes about 3 weeks..

Hi Sandy,

The banyan tree came about because I wanted to do the tubers and roots of the orchid and had to put it on something.  The tree is snake gourds.  The flowers are those little jewelry gourds or spinners.  The tubers are small bananna gourds and the rest is made from scraps.  It was a lot of fun but I'm glad it's finished.  Thanks for all of your kind words.

I've only made one gourd bowl, to date--mission-era style with Native American cave art on the side.  I'm just beginning to acquire a few tools and am truly a beginner--primarily a gardener, but love gourd craft!  I've seen such amazing gourd art!  A neighbor here in OR, where we live part time, will share some of her gourd art techniques next time we're up here from Santa Barbara on the OR coast.  Amazing that your sister has my same name!  My full name is Judith Ann Favour Sims.

Thanks Sandy, coming from you that is a great compliment, I really appreciate it.  I have been so impressed with your gourds.

Thanks,Sandy, I'm glad you liked the bears.......should have been a little smarter and had Randy photograph it for me then there would not have been any glare......oh,well,live and learn.

Keep sharing your beautiful work I love following it on this site.
