A scratchboard I completed in January and it's coloured!!!!  I very rarely colour my boards and love to add just a hint of colour now and again, but with this one felt it just had to be coloured.- Title is "Paws for Thought".

Not a scratchboard this time  - this musical jewellery box was bought at a garage sale 4/5 years ago and has been in the cupboard ever since, that is, until last week when I decided to give it a new lease of life.  It was originally Chinese red with a few gold coloured scrolls, anyway this is what I have come up with.

This is a scratchboard I did a few months ago titled "A Man's Best Friend"  and which I couldn't upload at the time, it is one of my favourites and is a definite keeper.  The majority of work was done with a tattoo needle and is.another fabulous reference photo taken especially for me by Herman Fox......check out his photographs at FlickR.

I finished this 8" x 10" scratchboard today.....the reference photograph for this piece was set up by my friend Herman Fox,  The candle holder and candle took no time to do BUT the little statue took forever....I could have completed three candle holders in the time it took to complete the statue.

Wet & Wild.

It has been some months since I have posted here, mainly due to having problems uploading images but it looks as though things are working now.  This scratchboard won 1st place in the Animal & Wildlife category for me at a show in January.  The reference photo by Steve Tracey was used with permission.
