New Pyrography Gourd
This is another Zen type gourd with different patterns in odd shaped spaces all over the gourd. The top was cut off so that it could be used as a liquid container. Grab hold of the neck and pour.
I had purchased some dye to use to add color to gourds and I wanted to try it out. Interesting. It looked good on some patterns and not on others. It is always a trial run with gourds. You never really know how it is going to turn out.
I am a decorative painter. I have been painting for many, many years and have gotten pretty good. There are many styles and I have tried them all. This is a learned art that takes practice and a desire.
We live in central Texas. I was born in Texas and have most of my life here with a few detours to Mississippi, Arkansas, and Florida. But I am right where I want to be.
We live on the airport. My husband Joe is the airport manager and teaches people to fly.
He is a man of many talents. We have been married over 20 years and each day is an present that opens differently each day.
We have 4 children. He had two and I had two when we married. We love each one completely and enjoy the unique individuals that they become. My youngest daughter has presented me with 3 grandsons. They are a true delight.
