Scratchboard dogs and society pages
Ampersand Art scratchbords with claybord inks. They are unusual for me as they are horizontal. I prefer a vertical subject matter, but the photos I took of them dictated the orientation, so there you go.
Got a check from Wally Workman Gallery yesterday. The '3Monkeys In A Boat' piece mentioned in the post before this sold to the TV show 'The Lying Game'. Mostly because it got scratched (which upset me for about a half a second) I had to let it go and not worry about it. I have no control over what happens to a piece after it leaves the gallery. As long as they don't use the image without my permission, or reproduce it on products without compensating me; I'm not involved. I don't like the idea of my piece being damaged...oh well.
This morning I opened the newspaper (I love Sunday mornings with the larger newspaper and NPR) and discovered that I had made the 'Society' page for the Youthbridge Starry Starry Night fundraiser in a photo. Whoohoo!
