So this is the beginning, my fourth still life on scratchboard. The glass lamp was a buy at a garage sale some time ago, the ornament, bible and crocheted centre piece belonged to my Mum.....the miniature rose lying across the Bible and not that you can see it very well ......grown by me!!!
Last Friday I collected my "Morning Swim" and "Garden Beauty" from the framers and I am really pleased with them..although I spray varnish the boards I prefer to have them framed under glass for more protection, some I have under non-reflective glass but these two are under normal type glass therefore showing some reflection in the photograph. There are a few scratchboard artists who never frame under glass!!!! And I have a new idea for framing when I have the next board done!
