This is a 5x7 on Essdee black scratchboard. It's my first self portrait attempt in scratchboard. I picked up a book of woodcuts by the German artist
H. Grohs...thought I'd follow his style in scratchboard, but got carried away and did my own thing with it!http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/21-Dec-2006/28168-selfpscrtch20002.jpg

Hey the silly grin is charming, almost risque. As of 5:00 today I will be off work for 4 days and scratching away on my s-p contribution. If I can figure out how to post it small, I will show it as a wip. This one is great and excites me. Terri
