Gourds are the perfect medium for me. I can carve them, use pyrography, paint, weave, dye or write on them. I can do tribal art, primitive motifs, cutesy stuff, patriotic themes, goth looks, or whatever suits my fancy. So far I haven't run out of ideas!

This is a baby gourd from a successful hand pollination. You can see the shriveled blossom and the raffia I tied it together with.
