Gourds

gourd-series

Painting the Gourd Series in 2006 was inspired by my many visits to the NYC farmers market in Union Square. The Fall is my favorite time of the year and I especially enjoy the variety of uniquely shaped gourds on display.

Throughout history this beautiful plant has been used for food, toys, jewelry, musical instruments and decoration, to name just a few creative possibilities. How can you not want to take one of these cuties home?
