Out and About...
Sometimes we like to get out and go - to sell our gourds at art fairs and gourd festivals, to give demonstrations or teach a class, or even take a class ourselves because there is always something new to learn. Here are some pictures of where we've been.

Corona Art Association Demonstration, 2011
I am the only gourd artist in our local art association. The other artists always had questions about gourd art materials and techniques, so I welcomed the opportunity show them first hand how I work.
