Gourd and Cattail Still life with Windflowers
I set up a little still life in my backyard last fall. Last weekend I got in a spring yard cleaning mood, since it seems like spring around here, and I threw all my gourds away. They were beyond their prime. To commemorate them I wanted to post a little still life I made of them. I picked some cattails and other seed heads and put them in an old bottle we found in the desert. The old bottle and cattails are still there. I need a little something for decoration. Still hoping for some kind of moisture here in the desert!
made a study drawing of them. Their petals are so delicate and only last a day, but then there are more the next day. They spread happily all over the place. I think I'd plant them again sometime.
