Well here it is September already and time is just flying by. At the moment I am preparing to launch this new website as my old one had changed hands and I will need to work it over or get rid of it, since I am not sure which I want to do, I started this page.
Recently I started painting gourds, thanks to my friend and fellow Artist Richard Brooks, his beautiful animal paintings on gourds are inspirational. You can view some of his painted gourds on his facebook site or see some of his fabulous artwork at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/richard-brooks.html.
The painted gourd in this photo is one that I painted. I loved working on the natural surface. The eagle and longhorn cattle just jumped out at me from this gourd. I am presently painting more gourds.
