Uninvited Guest.

Finally finished!

Uninvited Guest

Remember this piece!!!  The Butcher bird flew into our lounge room and perched itself on my crystal bowl and I was lucky enough to have time to get my camera and take a photograph of it.  I started this piece last August and once the bird and crystal bowl was finished I became bored with working on the tattered piece underneath so yesterday I inked over the tatting and have begun work on a new centre piece.

Tender Loving Care.

I have finally finished this piece (reference photograph used with permission by Eddie Evans FlickR) and decided to stay with the title of "Tender Loving Care" as I think it matches up with my other piece "Precious Cargo".

Tender Loving Care.

I have had quite a hectic week this past week and haven't done very much scratching to this board but a little is better than none I guess.  I have also thought of another title, rather than "Tender Loving Care" I thought maybe Mother's Pride & Joy".  Anyway here is an update.

Also,  I now have 2 new note cards available - "Timba" which recently won a Highly Commended in the QWASI art show and " Precious Cargo", they can be seen at the link below:-

Tender Loving Care.

I am working on 2 scratchboards at the moment, one 11" x 14" of a snow leopard cub.....I started on this whilst waiting for permission from the photographer to use his photograph of a lion and cub which I received and couldn't wait to get started on it, so when I'm tired of working on the 12" x 16" of the lion I do a little work to the snow leopard.

Here's the snow leopard - any suggestions for a title?

I finished this 8" x 12" scratchboard yesterday.....the Boxer's name is Vito and I have done a board of him before, plus an oil painting.  I love dogs and have owned two Boxers, sadly they have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.  Anyway, here's the latest!  Photos used with permission by his owner who lives in Sweden.
