Scratchboard News/Joy Ride WIP

Exciting news is that at long last an International Society of Scratchboard Artists is underway with Aussie artist Patrick Hedges Vice President, and founding board members being other amazing scratchboard artists such as Lorna Hannett - Canada, Diana Lee, Cathy Sheeter, Sandra Willard and Ken MacFarlane - USA.

The Society will be known as the ISSA and membership will commence once everything is in place with the aim being to have scratchboard art finally recognised as fine art.  I will certainly be looking forward to becoming a member once it is established.

In the meanwhile I have made a little progress on "Joy Ride".

How exciting!! Anyone who sees work like yours can't help but recognize scratchboard as true art.

Joy Ride is looking good! :)

I checked with my brother about the dog's name and he doesn't know....the dog was in the back of a ute at a place called Baffle Creek and he just took photos of him while there.

I agree, the ISSA news is very exciting.

That's great news, Judy! I totally agree with Rita...your scratchboard art is amazing and definitely, fine art!

Joy Ride will be spectacular when finished. :)
