An Early Gourd
This is one of my first gourd birdhouses done in a hummingbird design. I've done a lot of these recently for orders and changed my design to have more color in it using leather dyes and wood stains. This one is in acrylic paint with a clear coating on it. Most of these are meant for decoration - not functional! Since this one I've done, horses (woodburned and stained), goats, roadrunners, flowers, SouthWestern designs, and beehive. Currently I am doing a tulip bowl and Kokopellis. I've sold gourds from $15.00 up to $175. Depending on size, materials etc.
