GourdLady (G)

I've always dabbled a little with pen and paint,
but a few years ago, I saw some painted gourds
at a town craft fair and thought to myself,
"I can do that."

The designs were simple.
Smiling Santas with protruding bellies.
Southwestern vases,
bird houses,
flowered bowls,
and long necked geese.

I went to the local orchard
and bought a trunk load of gourds.
But I wanted to do something
different than the folksy yard art
that I had witnessed.

And this is what happened:

if I'm not blogging,
I might be "gourding"....
But- chances are-
I'm probably napping!
