Publisher's Summary

Learn the beauty of gourd art!

An art is an essential way of life. Any form of art is an expression of your soul and identity. It not only nourishes your life by providing endless opportunities with which to create new masterpieces, it also helps you find inner peace. Traditional art forms like painting, sketching, and sculpting have managed to stay alive despite the storm of technology and machinery. There are still many young people who, motivated by passion and the dream to paint, sculpt, or sketch something that might capture the essence of true beauty, live their lives exploring what the fine arts can offer them.

Some of the greatest men and women have claimed for themselves a unique art style or contribution to the talk of art and creation. Today, there are new art forms readily available for the public. The most common art forms of today include those that need the Internet or a graphic user interface for the artist to be able to come up with digital images that sometimes look more convincing than any real object or person.

However, there are art forms that, rooted in the simpler pleasures of rural life, continue to beckon creative intellectuals and art enthusiasts to rethink what art is and how it may be created. Gourd art is an example of that simple, rural-based art form. It is a little known practice that begins with growing, harvesting, choosing, then cleaning and designing a gourd. The design possibilities of gourd art are virtually endless as artists can express their creativity through carving or painting on the gourd’s surface.

If you do not have an artistic hobby yet, you would do well to learn all about gourd art and how easy it is to get started with this art form. There is nothing as satisfying as learning a new way to express your creative side. Come learn the simple yet truly gratifying art that Mother Nature herself provides.

I learned a lot!

This is a really well written book on everything about gourds! Wish I had found it before I grew my last bunch of gourds from last summer as it would have saved me a bunch of time.
This book also gave me a lot of new ideas on what to do with my gourds.
This is a truly wonderful book!
