My latest gourd venture, a forest scene in pyrography and carved bottom. I am posting the views as the gourd is turned. Let's go for a little walk...
This scene is of a doe and her fawn under the canopy of leaves, I wanted to show the affection and care of a mother with her baby. I call this side "The Lighted Path".
This next scene (which I had to take in two photos) is the mother doe looking over her back at her fawns, who, not unlike many children, have gotten a little distracted.
This little section features the characters we might encounter, squirrels chattering in the trees and raccoons having a little wash in the creek.
Lastly, we have a doe and her buck, keeping an eye on all the goings on. They symbolize the start of a new life of love, of family to come.
The view of the bottom of the gourd, carved leaves with some added color.
I hope you enjoyed this little "walk" with me!
May you enjoy the beauty around you today.
I am Jenn Avery, gourd artist of 20+ years. I have been a multi-disciplinary artist all my life, and my work has taken many twists and turns and many directions. Gourd pyrography has become my passion, but I love to experiment with all kinds of art and crafts. It gives me joy to pass on my enthusiasm for making art that makes people happy!
