12" x 12" Oil on gallery wrapped canvas.
These swan gourds are something I had never seen before. They really do remind you of swans. We picked them up at a fruit stand over the pass outside of Leavenworth. Apparently they will get a lot lighter and lose the green skin as they dry out. You have to air dry them carefully so they don't sit on one spot and rot. At this point, they are still as heavy as a melon.
