A gift....

I really think the ones on down below will show better if clicked to enlarge.
I don't think I mentioned, but last week, Friday to be exact, was our 35th anniversary....well, when Lorelei and Sarah came this is among the stuff they brought us. The gourd is one of the ones I grew a year or two ago....
And Sarah did the painting of it...and she did great job in my estimation. The above is Cougar...
and there is Puss Puss up there...notice her big eyes. They are big in real life.
Another view of Cougar--notice he is laying on a quilt. A quilt never is made that is not tested by the cats.
And of course this is Bubbie...she really captured him....notice he is under the quilt. That is very typical of him. And it shows his smiley face...he has that in real life. Sometimes looks almost like a smirk...like...ahhh, I have you trained well.

And I love the sunflowers she painted...and the fact that the quilt is there. It would not be us without that quilt.

wow, what a wonderful gift. i adore gourds...the possibilities are endless!!!

it looks like it may be a birdhouse, if you plan on using it outside, be sure it is well sealed.

happy anniversary, 35 years, that's a long time!!

Happy Belated Anniversary!
This is wonderfully done. I really like how she captured 'you' in the way she chose to paint it.
Really nice work.

This is a very lovely and very thoughtful gift. Wonderful paintings of your cats. I would cherish such a rendition of my two! I imagine that will be placed in a place of honor. :>)

Well, Happy Anniversary! She did a great job painting the Gourd.

Mary said...

This is great! She did a fantastic job of painting it. Quilts and cats...what is there not to love in that??? Really special to have your own cats on it. I would like to get some more gourds and paint them. I hung all the ones I had without painting them and they are pretty ugly that way.
