It's the first day of fall. Last week and this week, we are trying out scratchboard. Interesting and fun to try. I picked up some leaves outside and used them as my models. Tried to lightly enhance the finished one on the left with oil pastels.
My love of nature and love of paper have influenced my love of drawing, painting and making things for as long as I can remember. For me, there is excitement in the visual pleasure I get from copying the beauty of nature. The colors. The gentleness. With my artwork, I seek to inspire and enlighten the viewer.
