Chicken with Blue Squares

Just finished this Chicken with Blue Squares. It's a 5"x7" Ampersand Art www.ampersandart.com scratchboard with Liquidtex inks and a little bit of acrylic red. Love me some chicken on a panel! It may even be a rooster, who knows? They are all chickens to me!

Scratching out a Monkey

I started working on this 5"x7" Ampersand www.ampersandart.com scratchboard yesterday. Not done yet, not quite sure where it's going, or what colors will be on this, if any. Having fun with it anyway. I'm packing my studio up, getting rid of stuff left and right...it's so strange, and yet, so good to purge. Still looking for followers of this and my Monkey a Day blog, so line up and sign up folks! Also enjoy your comments, so tell me what you think. Or give me ideas for future scratchboards. Currently it's pretty much the
'Dog and Monkey' show here, with a few still lifes thrown in.

Scratchboard Still Life

I finished this 5"x7" Ampersand Art scratchboard the other day. I added yellow ink, vintage paper and red acrylic paint. You can see the before version that I posted here earlier if you scroll down the page to March 27th. I've got a larger version of this that has not been painted or had any collage work on it yet. Will post it here once I finish it. Should be interesting to see how different or similar it may turn out to be. I know I haven't a plan in mind...

Here are some shots from my art talk/demo today in Johnson City. Had a great group of bicyclers from Minn. come through the Kirchman Gallery http://www.kirchmangallery.com/ One of my favorite scratchboard artists came by, Randy Jerome Simpson, the above piece is one of his works in progress. He was good help and took all of these photos. Thanks Randy! And thanks Susan for inviting me to speak!
