Winter is leaving and spring is here!  Here is one last snowy scene to wrap up winter.  This is one of the commissions I worked on this year.

Something New!

I have been trying something new, scrimshaw on seashells.  For those of you who don't know what scrimshaw is, it is a form of art that sailors used to do on their time off at sea.  Apparently the name scrimshaw comes from a word that means a "waste of ones time"... The ship captains did not see the value of this art form.  To me it is a very unique and challenging form of art not to mention fun.  Scrimshaw is done by scratching an image into the surface of the shell or bones etc.  Then filling the scratches with India Ink.  Here are the first few that I have done.
