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!
