22×26 scratchboard. At the time I did this piece, scratchboard was available in various sizes but was just “paper”. Original is N-F-S.

I ended up doing this particular piece two different times because the first one was sold at an art show before it even opened!! So I did the second one to see the differences.. and there were a lot. But this one hangs in my studio.. and my kids are fighting over who will get it when I’m gone!! Wonderful children, huh..

    I can see why the kids want it, but I hope you have it for many years to come. I do admire your skill in such a range of mediums – and all with great sensitivity.

    I’ve got to reserve a special set of words to refer to pieces like this, it is just so well done that the ones that spring to mind sound of tin.

    Hey, this is really impressive girlfriend! Quite the departure from what you’ve been doing in recent years. Tell the kids it goes in the tomb with you so you can “take it with you”.. That should shut them up! HA! Really though, I can see why a similar one sold so quickly. Like Tom said, needs a special set of words.
