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 http://patrickhedges.com/2011/06/25/scratchboard-artists-of-the-world-unite/#respond 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. :)
