PPF #33 and it's almost Halloween

Have you been over to PPF to visit with some incredibly talented artists and check out their work? The piece below fits in perfectly with their discussion regarding Halloween and

Dia de los Muertos.
YOU can see anything in a gourd if you really try. This is 'Bonita'. Originally a Chinese bottle gourd that lost her stem in shipping has human (my) hair that could be trimmed if you prefer a shorter look. It certainly won't grow any longer! She's hung around the studio for the last couple years in her box and only comes out for special occasions. I never thought there would be a market for her ... should I list her on ETSY? She's a fun piece and

her hair has held up pretty well

for the last two years ... SCARY!

Happy Halloween

enjoy Dia de los Muertos*

*(Day of the Dead) a holiday dedicated to ancestors honoring both death and the cycle of life. The celebration acknowledges that we still have a relationship with our ancestors and loved ones that have passed away. How cool is that?

... have a great weekend!

Harley #2 hits the streets and my heart!

I LOVE TO PAINT! Created a 2nd Harley gourd for an old friend. It was the best thing ... i thought about her the entire time i painted! I remembered all the good stuff about working with her, about the early a.m. talks we had, about the other folks we worked with, about BACON CHEESEBURGERS. Hope she loves this Harley gourd as much as I loved painting it for her!

p.s. see you in a couple weeks!

Harley Davidson Gourd & PPF #31

finished this commissioned piece today

designed by the client and painted by me!

lo and behold ... my interpretation

of the Harley-Davidson logo!

Gourd is approx 16" tall and

has a personal message hidden on the back ...

a perfect Autumn gift for the man/woman

who has everything and loves their Harley :)

if you have time, head over to Paint Party Friday, every Friday ... you'll find some very creative folks and their very creative works there.
