Yellow Bump Gourd
I am very fascinated by the gourds of today. They come in all shapes and sizes, have magnificent colors and the most interesting bumps I have ever seen - it makes me crazy having to choose. I used this one in a colored pencil piece years ago and have fallen in love with them more each year. From the pale butter yellow to the almost glowing sunset orange at the bottom, how can you resist? Add the thin avocado green striping and spatter dots, I can't help but be inspired. As I'm always saying, I look for the ugly in something simple and try to make you love it as much as I do - is it working yet? I can't wait to see what this season offers to my creative spirit.
