I've been sneaking peeks at your work for a while - I love the amazing detail and your ability to render metal in your works. And yes, WC! has agreed to a Scratchboard sub-forum - coming soon!! See you there...

This is looking very good and soon Bertoni, our guide who is a scratchboard artist also, will see this and comment. It is thanks to him, that we will get the sub-forum for Mixed Media.

here is a little more done..I can't seem to stop working on this thing..I'm having fun..and i found a cool little trick..i use those little fiberglass tools for this style and i found i can use sand paper to shappe the tool for different effects..like..i sand a chiseled edge on them for doing fine lines..very cool..i also am attaching a close up..thanks for looking.....

I love watching this piece as it's "constructed". I've never tried doing a scrathcobard of anything mechanical before - now I have this sudden urge to run around town with my camera!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked the site - I'm trying to carve a chuck of time out to upload new stuff and make "galleries" for the older stuff, hopefully I'll be able to get to it soon!

Nope, that's the pricing for the originals. (My husband really had to push me to get them that high.) So far my art has sold only regionally, and those are the prices the market will bear (barely). I'm trying to get into other, more lucrative markets, i.e. a gallery in Calgary, and if that happens I imagine my prices will rise accordingly; but until then...

p.s. my husband describes me as "risk averse" if that helps you understand my thinking :)

Your rendition of metal is wonderful. You have a way with textures. It looks like it was fun!
