Gourd Folk Art Painting

Today was Sat. and I was determined to paint or else. I didn't have any canvases left so I painted on gourds. That is why I bought the gourds after all. I was going to paint 3 small bottle gourds but one of them had cracks so I painted the other two and a bigger roundish gourd. The minute I started to paint it was just one interruption after another. The phone kept ringing, the garden needed water, my bf needed help fixing a knob on the washer, the cat needed attention. And then my bf needed attention.

I did manage to get all 3 gourds painted. I'll let them dry overnight and hopefully put a clear protective spray over them tomorrow.

The desert scene was inspired by my trip to Quartzsite AZ.
