Sandi - Scratchboard by ShaleseSands
Sandi - Scratchboard
Here's Sandi!! :D I managed to finish her up yesterday, so now I can't wait to give it to the commissioner for Christmas. Just needs some varnish and then she's good to go! Hope you all enjoy her! :)

Jazzy - Scratchboard
Here's my latest Christmas commission--a Papillon named Jazzy! I had lots of fun working on her and I know the commissioner will be thrilled to give it to his mom for Christmas. :) I hope you all enjoy her too!

Giant of the Wetland - Scratchboard by ShaleseSands
Giant of the Wetland - Scratchboard
Wow, once again I've surprised myself by finishing a piece before I thought I would! This is another commissioned piece fresh off the drawing board. I'm so very pleased with the outcome of this one!! There was a lot of work involved, but it was totally worth it. This particular piece is special because it was one of the first elephants I ever saw/photographed. I hope you all like it as well! :)

Common Loon - Scratchboard by ShaleseSands
Common Loon - Scratchboard
I started this little guy before I went to Africa and didn't quite finish him before I left. So I finished him tonight! It was fun to work on that slight iridescence that you can see on a loon's head in just the right lighting. Hope you like it!

African Queen - Scratchboard by ShaleseSands
African Queen - Scratchboard
Yeah! Here's the other pre-sale commission I just finished last night! :D The airbrush really made a difference with this piece! I'm SO happy with how it turned out! So much fun to work on this lioness. I hope you all enjoy her as well!

And as an FYI, I will of course still be doing North American wildlife and horses, but I'm focusing on building up my African wildlife currently. ;)

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!
