When I was inspired to create this piece a couple of years ago, someone near and dear to me in Alaska was going through a major transition. I kept having this vision of Dall's sheep frolicking beneath the Northern Lights. Sure enough, on the final night of her life on...
Who knew that moose were so sophisticated? I started with the handsome bull and realized he needed a glamorous companion. These two make such a lovely couple, don’t you think?
It almost looks as though they are about to be married.
This is my latest clayboard engraving...a Great Horned Owl, holding a cup of coffee.
On the cup is a band of three blind mice musicians, playing jazz music. Musical notes are wafting upwards in the steam.
I've been busily preparing for an upcoming workshop I'm giving at the Kachemak Bay Shorebird festival in Homer, Alaska. In the workshop, I'm going to show artists how to etch this Oystercatcher on clayboard, using acrylic inks and a scratch knife.
