Bobcat 1 - Scratchboard by Misted-Dream
Bobcat 1 - Scratchboard
Hey guys! Here's my most recent scratchboard that I finished tonight. This is one of three boards I will complete of bobcats and hang them all together as a triptych. I had lots of fun making her, so on to number two!! :D

Yay, he's DONE!!I managed to finish this little one this week. ;) This one isn't for anything in particular--just wanted to make another small scratchboard piece. Just need to varnish and frame it, and then he's good to go!

Here's the second little canvas! I just finished it today. :) I think it will compliment the other little one nicely. This bird is an Indigo Bunting and is one of my favorite birds that I look forward to seeing every Spring.

I hope everyone's doing well! I wanted to share with you all this little painting I started and finished over the weekend. I was out photographing warblers two weeks ago and came across one of my favorites--an American Redstart. So naturally I had to paint this little beauty. :) I'm quite pleased with the outcome--especially since I don't usually use bright colors.

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted a journal update, but I have been busy getting pieces ready for The Out West Art Show and Sale in Great Falls, Montana, which I just came back from yesterday. I had lots of fun, just like last year, and managed to sell 7 pieces! Not as much as last year, but the payout was about the same. These shows are always so invigorating and inspiring, so I can't wait to start making more for next year. ;) Here are some small thumbnails of the pieces that sold this week:

Bitter Morning by Misted-Dream Rainforest King by Misted-Dream Grizzly in Mist by Misted-Dream Young Leaders by Misted-Dream Resplendence by Misted-Dream Sun Ray by Misted-Dream

There was also a little 6" X 6" moose study that I sold, but I don't have it uploaded here. If you're curious as to how that one looks, you can check out my Facebook Art Page. ;) Anywho, hope you're all doing well! I'm working on a small swan painting currently for a contest, so I'll see if I can finish that one in time. Again, I upload all my work-in-progress photos on my Facebook page, so stop on over if you like watching how these are made. :)

Thanks!

I am a wildlife and equine artist as well as a recent college graduate trying to make my way in the art world. My goal is to be able to make a living solely off my art--a dream I've always wanted since I started drawing at about 2 years old. The purpose of my art is to depict the beauty of nature--more specifically the sublime. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my work!
