I almost forgot that I wanted to post phots of these ornaments that I just finished. These little gourds were of really strange shapes. What to do with them. This is what I came up with. They are all about 5-6 inches tall.
I'm a Colorado sheep rancher's wife and of necessity the ranch work takes most of my time, but my soul is in sculpting and doll making. I love making the American Indian figuratives, probably because I'm a Cherokee breed and the culture of our ancestors plays a large part in my life.
I was an art major and have studied various forms of art all my life.
I am mostly self taught although I have taken sculpting classes with well known artists to help refine techniques, but it's an on going process, as I am always working on that.
I have four children, ten grandchildren and now have four great grandchildren. .. Yep. I'm an old duffer, but I guess one is as old as one feels.
