Harris's Hawk

This is my latest gourd which is quite large. The subject matter is a Harris's Hawk which I photographed last summer in Oregon at the high desert Museum. I loved the coloration of the bird and that is why I chose it as the subject for this gourd. The side with the full figure is carved. The geometric designs include different takes on a feather design. They are woodburned and carved.  I have been quite busy trying to get the gardens ready for planting and now mowing season has started so that is a big job around here! That leaves less time to work on art projects or plan classes. Hope everyone is enjoying the arrival of Spring!!
