Trying to get used to the medium after a hiatus of quite a few years.
I have a way to go yet...need a lot more practice.
Just ordered some better tools! C&Cs!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!

These scratchboard pieces are charming, visually stimulating and I think have some wonderful potential on all sorts of levels. The eyes have it on this kitty. I do hope you keep at this and explore the potential here. I find it exciting and would be proud to have one of these on the wall in my house. Congratulations.

Awe, those eyes! It either just woke up or is giving you the look they give one when they are about to ignore one.

I will be looking forward to seeing all of your coming work, posted here.

Howard:
Thanks so much for the supportive comment! It's great to get back to something I loved doing. I want to go back and forth with my acrylics to scratchboard. It's a nice change of pace!
I'll be experimenting soon adding color after doing a few more black and whites! Yes, scratchboard engraving has a lot of potential and hope to explore that!! In the past I had used scratchboard drawings to illustrate articles when I was Creative Director/Art Dir of a regional magazine and in some freelance advertising projects...
