Scratching the Surface Series

"No 5" in "Scratching the Surface" Series
4 x 4 Oil on Gessobord
On Exhibit at Abend Gallery
Going to explore the sgrafitto/scratching technique for a while longer, so it now becomes a series "Scratching the Surface".  I've had such good feedback from these paintings, that I want to see what else I can do with it.

They are a bear to photograph, but I'll be back in the studio tomorrow (with JunieB...yeah!) and I'll see if they photograph any better there.  They really are warm and subtle in person.

Hi Cynthia,
First and foremost, your series of scratching the surface, has the old world masters look. It's great, I attempted to do it in gouache, usually I paint in oils, but thought maybe it would work in gouache. My first attempt was a failure, which I posted, don't my early experiments to end in failure. I did tell my fb friends about you. If you rather I didn't please let me know and I will remove it from my post.

You are indeed a very talented lady and I thank you for sharing.
