Ho! Remember Boo boo kitty in Texas? Well this isn't him. This is Paco from the Grand Cayman's. Yes that's right, I am just back from my winter trip to the islands - loved it - and I came across this sexy little fella who will eventually show up in some oil paintings just like Boo has. Soon to be posted on my blog are paintings of Boo boo kitty. Hope you all are having a great time (:

This is a scratchboard, a clay covered hard board with a layer of black ink. When you scratch with a sharp tool you make a white mark. This is something I teach my high school art students every year, but I have never completed a scratchboard myself. So. . . . . finally I admitted this to my students. They challenged me and gave ME a due date. Mine was late but at least I finished. I like to draw, so it was a fun project. If anyone is interested in instructions for scratchboard visit my blog (janispaints.blogstpot.com). I posted some instructions for friends and students.
