11x14 - Scratchboard

A lonely mixed-breed stray, longingly staring at the viewer and dreaming of a loving, warm place to call 'home'.

Dedicated to all the stray animals out there in the world.

Hey there!
This picture is just beautiful!
I was wondering where I could buy proper scratchboards, it seems I only find those which already hav a picture on it and you have to scratch it free

your scratch board work is absolutely amazing!
but i have to wonder... you're at the point where you're so good, it doesn't look like scratch board. it looks like you took a photo and grayscaled it. why spend so much time on it when it doesn't even look like scratch board?
then again, i guess i don't really have room to talk seeing as i don't have the patience to do any kind of scratch work. kudos to you for your amazing work :)

I wish I'd found your gallery before, every piece of yours is absolutely beautiful. I've made me what to take up scratchboard again--though then I'll be disappointed when they don't turn out a tenth of what yours are.

Also, if you ever have any interest in helping out a rescue group, I work with one in Australia that I'm sure would love to work with you.

I just can't get over how much life is in your pieces, it's amazing. Thank you for sharing!
