Barn Owl + Exciting small win for scratchboard

Hey everyone! It has been a LONG time since I've hopped over here to look at everyone's work and post anything, but had an exciting win for scratchboard to share.

First, here's a new piece I just finished for a local exhibition in central WI - 2017 Birds in Art exhibition. It is a 9x12 board. I haven't sprayed it yet, so if anything stands out, please holler.

Second, I recently showed in an art festival also in central WI with my scratchboard work and usually at these fine art festivals I'm grouped with the 'drawing' or 'other' category. At this particular show, the program came out day of the show and I was listed under 'scratchboard'!! First time I've had a category for the medium - anyone else ever have that happen?! I was really excited about it.

This is awesome. Congrats on your win. Several years ago I won a state award for the Wisconsin Regional Artists program with a scratchboard owl. This year I am going to the state show with a scratchboard gorilla! I have not been on this page in ages, but stopping back and thought I would comment on your wonderful piece.

Very very rare to find a scratchboard category. I love barn owls and you really did this one justice. Keep scratching. You have so much talent.
