A lady gave me a bunch of papers on how to grow gourds. I like the shape of gourds. The shapes of gourds really inspire me. So I started making this painting based on the ideas they gave me.
When I was a boy my grandpa had bird houses made of gourds. Flying squirrels made a home in one of them. We would put a long thing piece of bamboo in the hole and the squirrels would fly out.
This painting is a night time dream scape. When you rub your eyes a bunch in the dark and you see all the colors. The swirls and the shapes. I see a fish and a snake and a minty green kitty cat.
Painted with exterior house paint and glitter on a wooden panel made from the wall of my studio renovation. The wooden strips built into a frame I collected along the road.
Approximately 32" x 32" x 1". 2020. A wire hanger is on the back — ready to put on your wall.
