Cup and Two Gourds
Oil on board, 5" x 7"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
These little decorative gourds have been around since Thanksgiving. It's amazing how long they have lasted, but now they are finally beginning to deteriorate. The one on the left has turned this most beautiful honey amber tone, while the other one is still pretty much holding its original color. I liked them both against the deep blue of this tin cup.
And here's a little video I shot of our Valentine's weekend trip to Portland, starring my wife Brenda and our son Jared. Jared lives in the heart of the city, and showed us the ropes of riding the MAX light rail. We went on the hunt for a restaurant that wasn't booked for the sweetheart's holiday and ended up having a great dinner at Henry's, near the world famous Powell's Bookstore. It was a fun change of pace from our small-town world.
