Gourd Painting!


One of the things that I really like doing is painting Gourds. When you live in a country place like me, you would see a lot of these hanging out the porches of most houses here. You can do a lot of things with them, you can either hang them out the porch as a birdhouse, or you can just leave it inside the house for decorative use, or, you can use them as a gift to give to people who are appreciative to a hand-made gifts. They're usually the older people who appreciates gifts like these. Anyway, the picture above was hand-painted by me, mostly gone, I've given them away as a Christmas gifts but I still got about 5 left that remained unpainted, one of these days, I will finish them, so I can hang them outside for the spring and give to some close friends. If you have any gourds, don't throw them away, you can do a lot of things with them, a little paint here and there, you will be amazed of what you can do, so try it!
