I also delivered another piece to the Studios On Sheridan today for their next First Friday event in July. Sadly I wont be there to hang out with the other Awesome artists because I'll be in California.
I'll be hanging out with some of THE BEST SCRATCHBOARD ARTISTS in THE WORLD. The ISSA Scratchboard exhibit in Glen Ellen California is fast approaching. I'm super excited to say the least :)
I've seen a preview of Ann Ratlett's demo on scratching/stippling and can't wait to see it in person. I know Lorna Hannet's demo will be incredible. She can scratch ANYTHING! I'll also get to see Charles Ewing work as well. He is the man who invented the boards I use. I was lucky to be in a show in Alamosa that he held and got to hang out with him for several days. He's a heck of a Great guy. I'm looking forward to meeting Patrick Hedges, an Australian Master Scratcher who is coming to the states for the event. He's also going to demo as well. He's been a huge support to me as I've learned how to work these boards. We give each other a hard time...but we both deserve it :) And of course, I get to hang out with Harold Farley. Harold is a Scratchboard Hero of mine. He is actually the reason I started scratching. He suggested that I give it a try, and from the first board, I haven't stopped. All of my wild crazy art fun the last few years....well it's all his fault ;)
