One World One Heart OWOH




Hi there and welcome to my blog!! My name is Barbara Moore and I am a Gourd Artist living in Arkansas, USA. I love creating one of a kind Art pieces using the humble gourd. I love the fact that you can grow it, dry it, clean it, and then use several different techniques, everything from inks, dyes, and paints to decoupage, clay, wood burning and carving to create an Art piece that is truly unique, special and one of a kind. No two gourds are exactly alike and no two Artists work in exactly the same way.

Right now I want to show you the first prize that I will be giving away to some lucky blogger who comments on this post:

This is an apple gourd and is made into exactly what it represents. Doesn't it look like a nice shiny apple? I will post another prize later on if I receive enough comments. In order to be eligible to win the apple:
     1. You must be a blogger (from anywhere in the world)
     2. You must leave a comment on this post  (and a way to reach you if you win)
     3. The winner will be announced on February 17 and I will email the winner as well as post it.

This is my first year to participate in the OWOH event and the last year that Lisa plans on doing it. I hope there are many,many,many bloggers who join in. I can't wait to read you comments!

Actually, it looks like a gilded apple...it looks like it's made out of porcelain or glass or some other type of material...it's wonderful, as is all of your work! I really think your work is amazing, but you probably get tired of hearing people say that to you, Barbara ;-)

Sassy Marsha said...

Barbara, the apple gourd is simply beautiful. I run out of superlatives when I try to describe what you do with the humble gourd.

Sharon said...

Hi Barbara,

I love your gourd work. I'm so glad that you have found something that you can be so passionate about. It's been fun seeing all the neat things that you can make from a gourd, and I would love to win a gourd made especially by you.

Love & Hugs,

I would have never guessed that the lovely ornament was made from a gourd, I am amazed. Of course, I would love to win it. Thanks for the chance, Liz (831)

Oh, this is WONDERFUL! Would you believe that I collect goards? I have one that has been made into a pocketbook! I have a lot of mine displayed above the cabinets in my kitchen...but this is probably one of the prettiest I've seen! And my kitchen is also decorated with......can you guess it......apples!! This would just tie everything together so nicely, so you KNOW i'm keeping my fingers crossed to win this little treasure!

I love your blog and have bookmarked you so that I may come back again soon. Enjoyed my visit very much!

Thank you so much for the chance to win. I hope you'll take a few minutes to stop by my blog, as well, and visit with me for a while.

All good wishes,
Paula
