Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

This little gourd pretty much designed itself. It is a beautifully-shaped gourd with natural mottles and stripes that I simply could not manage to cover it with alternative designs. So instead I took advantage of the stripes and stains that it wanted to keep and added in a few whiskers, colors, eyes and snouts. The result is a Hide and Seek gourd that seems to have a tiger and a zebra somewhere in there as well. There is very little leather dye on this gourd - some of it is natural color of the gourd, and most of the rest is colored with watered down acrylic paint - except for the eyes, of course. As usual the money the sale of this gourd will go to UNICEF, or M.O.R.E. I am also open to having to a different non-profit that you desire, as long as it is for a good cause such as human rights, environmental protection, or public health.

Speaking of public health -- I have been a little bit under the weather, so what I could have completed last weekend, I did not finish until today - 25 December. Maybe having a Christmas finish is not so bad after all, but Hide and Seek is probably my last gourd for the year. Don't be like me - take your vitamins, and drink plenty of water. Stay warm and healthy..
