Panel # 4
My Love of Hawks and Eagles was my inspiration for this "Hawk Gourd".
I first drew on each hawk with pencil in each of the four panels, then wood burned in each picture and used Leather Dyes for all the colors. I left the area surrounding each Hawk the natural gourd color and stained the rest of the gourd with a light brown leather dye. Also I created a border design which I also wood burned in then colored with leather dye. This gourd does have a top that goes on it, but it seems I forgot to take a picture with the top on...sorry about that (grinning here..just being Human).
Each Hawk is a different kind of Hawk and these four are my favorites.
