Thompson's Gazelle - Scratchboard
Just finished this little guy up this afternoon! Once again, very pleased with the outcome. This one was all about the lighting! It was great fun to watch these little guys in Africa--they're not much larger than a goat.

Showstopper - Scratchboard
Oh, you don't know how nice it is to be finally done with this piece! :faint: I'm not sure how long this one took, but it was probably at least 60 hours or more (likely more). It was a fun piece to work on, but I have a limit with everything. ;) And yes, there WILL be prints of this one!

Raccoon Study - Scratchboard
Yeah!! Here's this little guy all done! :D He was definitely fun to work on. Getting all that fluffy fur texture was a fun adventure for sure! Hope you all enjoy this little guy!

Ginger - Scratchboard
Here's my newest scratchboard that I just finished up a little bit ago! This is a Caracal named Ginger who I photographed at Ivory Orphans in Tanzania last Fall. This was a thoroughly enjoyable process from start to finish and I hope you all enjoy her!

Check it out guys! The Out West Art Show put together a video for me for the upcoming show in March. I think it turned out rather fantastic. :) Have a look-see! 



In other news, I'm just plugging away at making more art. I'm currently working on a large Friesian scratchboard as well as a commissioned horse oil painting. You can check out my Facebook art page to see all the work-in-progress photos if you're interested. (Link below.)

Thanks guys!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
