Art, gourds and budgies  
I'm working on a lot of Fear art again. I'm so happy with how some of it is coming out. Gosh I'm working on a very cool drawing but it has a bunch of skulls that are tedious. Might take me a while to finish. And I have drawn this year's Valentine's card. So I may ink that tomorrow. I'm also trying to finish inking a drawing of Baba. I should focus on that one tomorrow. I'm also really in the mood to make an animation of Fear again. I just don't know what to have him doing. I want something that will look cool but not be so hard. I'd love to draw him flying but I know that would be hard. Even though I know very well how bird wings move. I have a pet peeve about poorly animated bird wings in movies. I hate them. So if I finally make one it will be right. Or die trying. Haha. Oh and I'm also trying to ink the 35 expressions I started last summer. They are all drawn but not inked.

Ok Kabuldur asked about the gourds.

This was back in December. The yard was lovely covered in these giant gourd leaves. But then the frost killed them.

And then the gourds were exposed.

Here's Chris harvesting two of the biggest ones. It was a wonderful year for gourds. I have never had luck with AFrican Wine Kettles. I don't know why suddenly they did so great.

And my budgie pillow collection is finally complete. I just need a small plush blue one for the small set. And I love my two Fears. I have to finish his wings soon. So many projects to work on.

And Weds we will go on our trip to Bradenton. I'm looking forward to that.

What a wonderful, lush and BIG gourd patch you had! Where I grew up the frost always finished off the pumpkins, but the pumpkins were still good. This was one way of finding them. I am impressed at the size of the biggest gourds!

And what cool Fear Figures you have made. You are so creative in so many areas.

And I love the budgie pillows, too!

Yeah I was able to find all of them this way. What a shame. It was a gorgeous plant. They are huge. African Wine Kettles are the largest.

Thanks. I love my cute Fear figures.

I love by budgie pillows.

I loved seeing those big gourds in your yard. I hope you can dry some of them and paint them.

And budgie pillows. Speaking of budgies, how are the babies?

It was so neat. I have to take pics of the ones on the patio. They look so cool. I should turn one into a budgie or a chicken.

They are good though Bolt still has a bad leg.
