Surprise appylover31803!! It's complete!

I finally finished tonight after much time and detailing,appy's
Custom gourd art Commission. I'm really pleased with the
outcome of it, The mini portrait of Montana on the gourd was
the hardest part, LOL!

Now for the pics...

I'm really happy about the way Montana's portrait turned out!
Sorry for the glare from my cam, I made the mistake of glossing it
Then taking the pictures! :roll:

The top of the gourd. A very pretty design...and yes those
are pieces of a pine cone you see! Instead of creating a
Normal bowl, I cut out a neat design instead of a plain old circle!

Here is the horseshoe detailing, there is two horseshoes on the
gourd, one on each side of Montana. :)

I added some leather strings to the gourd, there are three sets
of them around the gourd, you can get a better view where
they are placed in the second pic.

So there you have it! I hope you like it Darylann, and I PROMISE
It is much more beautiful in person instead of these crappy pics, lol!

If anyone else is possibly interested in purchasing custom made
Gourd art, just PM prices are cheap, just ask appy!

Thanks guys, I believe it came out nicely!

Rustic- Drawing and painting takes a lot of practice, patience, and
TIME, lol!

Yes that is for sure. My aunt is recently retired so she paints and sells a lot of beautiful stuff and she says that I could do it it just takes some practice. I was going to learn a little this summer but I didn't end up having time. So hopefully Thanksgiving break or something I can..

No problem, I'm so happy you like it!

Even though Montana was the hardest part to do, I enjoyed
Painting him and featuring him on the gourd.

Wow, amazing job! I can tell you put a lot of work into it, very nice! :)

Do you grow your own gourds? I used to grow them and luffas then sell at our local farmers market. People don't realize the process of getting the gourd dried and cleaned. Very time consuming.
Looks great, I love gourd art
