Gourd Skully

Today I got to paint a skull on a gourd, and I got to paint a memorial ribbon. The gourd isn't quite finished. I want to glue an eyepatch over one eye of the skully. It's a cool bit of folk art. The gourd is rouched up where the eye should be. That is the part of the gourd that was laying on the ground. It gives the skully a nice folksy weathered look. I always thought it was both cool and creepy that the color of a gourd skin looks like human skin.

Want to join too? Go to the code 'legendofping' and you could have the luxury of posting to all your blogs in one fell swoop like I do. Way more efficient than doing it one by one.
I'm not sure what 'ping my default' means but I guess I'll find out when I hit send.

The week sure went by quick. I had a lot more planned but didn't have the energy to do it. My hands are still sore from woodcarving, and so I've had to lay off the knitting and crocheting. I'm looking forward to the weekend. My daughter may visit. We'll see.

Paintings from the past.

Can't very well have a painting blog without having some paintings to look at.

Fruit Painting

I ran across a photo of a painting of mine, and then I wondered why I never finished it. All I can think is it must be stored in the garage somewhere. Pity, I rather like it and would love to hang it in the dining room. I'll probably find it when I move again. As I recall all I had left to paint were the candles.

First Post

I can't believe after making over 30 blogs I didn't have one just on painting. So now I do. So there. It's all Dave the Painting Guy's fault for making me aware that I didn't have one. He's a portrait artist that broadcasts on
