Scratchboard Demo at Jerry's Artarama was great! Good number of folks came and stayed and left with their own scratches plus extra sample boards and even a few tools. Will be doing this again May 9th. I realized that I love teaching, esp. about this medium. What was so interesting that day was how everyone uses the product differently. My friend Cheryl Finfrock took to it and it really works well with her abstract expressionism style. http://www.cherylfinfrock.com/ I hope she posts some examples soon and works it into some larger pieces.
I'm putting up some images that are new works I've produced for Dahlia Wooods Gallery in Dallas. http://www.dahliawoodsgallery.com/ They are 8x10 scratchboard which is a new size for me to work with. Plus I've introduced a quirky element of scratching on top of the acrylic...in this case some tic tac doe.
Just got back from Marfa, TX and will report on that soon.
