Duck Gourd III (2017)


Date: August 2, 2017
Size: 3in x 5in
Watercolor, gouache, ink on coldpress.

Friends of mine showed me an interesting gourd they'd found in a co-op market—an example of a goose-necked gourd, which is an actual type of gourd. They really do resemble goose—but in this case of a more short-necked one than usual, it reminded me of a duck. The central gourd here is indeed what became known to me as "the" Duck Gourd, which I keep incorporating into various works. This time I added a small family for Duck Gourd as well.
