I was honored with an Award of Excellence for "Blue and Gold". The Master Scratchboard Artist Category was judged by artist Dorothy Pierce, PhD. I am honored to receive this award as it was a very nice show.
Here is a picture of much of the group taken after the demos on Monday. We forgot to take a group picture on Saturday at the opening, but there were a few more artists at the opening too.
I was one of the artist that did a demo on Monday. My demo was fur and eyes, and then a bit of a discussion on marketing your artwork. I used this lion cub for my demo. My reference for this cutey was from South Africa last summer. This cub was in a captive program that raises breeding animals. Her and a brother were 3 months old and we actually got to go in and play with them. They thought my long hair was a fabulous toy. It was definitely a cool experience. This board is 8"x8" in size. No title yet.
I also am working on a 20"x30" board which I am calling "Spring Loaded". I am hoping to have it done by July 24 to enter it in a competition if it turns out well :)
