Strange Gourds Still Life Painting

I tweaked yesterday's painting a bit. The right side Italian cypress tree was leaning too much.  I made some other minor improvements as well.
Then it was on to today's painting. I bought some of these strange ornamental gourds to paint before going on my trip, and sadly, one of them was already moldy.  So I tossed it and figured I'd better paint them today before the other ones get soft. It was more challenging than I thought. And I had a brown background which just wasn't doing a thing for me so I repainted it blue and white. When it's light out again I'll have to do some minor fixing, but it's as done as it's going to get tonight.
