Heres a little closer....At least you can see the wings and more of the face...

Thanks, I'm glad you like it....I get what you mean about the creepy/beautiful thing....All compliments of the nut...The walnut idea just sort of presented itself...I had a summer in the woods and the more time I spent there the more things appeared to be not what they appear to be Wink

As far as packing away my art supplies~I'm not sure where that one came from...I guess I was at a point of mental house cleaning and I thought using primarily only what I found would bring me to a different place with my art as well.  It was much easier than I imagined- and was an unexpectedly  great reminder that art can be made anywhere with anything...

What was your potato idea? Sounds very interesting....

2  gourd dwelling in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ladybugstew on: December 28, 2005 02:36:43 PM
Last summer I camped and packed away my art supplies...I decided I'd use only what I found or grew for my art.  My original idea was to carve this gourd as a big lantern....but the more I carved the more it was clearly meant to be a dwelling~  
As it turns out-I did use some fabric scraps and battery operated lights....

Here is a close-up....The gourd (which are great fun to carve~and sand very easily) is a bushel gourd...the head is a black walnut shell...hair~ basil root...the wings (if you look very closely past the crappy pic quality) are cicada wings...interior gourd carpeting is some type of lichen....moldy wallpaper-complements of the winter elements...

Here is a shot in the dark....(sorry for the quality-or lack there of....)
