Wow, lot's of positive response from yesterday's post, not only on the painting but on the commentary too. Several readers have e-mailed me and asked if I could write a little bit about each painting. Well, sure! I write a lot of commentary over at my other blog Art & Life, and I can do that here too. I've loved gourds, ever since I was a little kid. We always had some decorating the house during the fall. Going to the farm stand or orchard and getting apples, pumpkins and gourds was a family tradition. I set these out on the picnic table in bright mid-morning sunlight so the colors would glow and the shadows would be strong and emphasize their unique shapes. Enjoy!
