Latest Cedar Scrimshaws™

Got a few more cedar scrimshaws finished over the last few weeks.

As usual, the wood is always eastern red cedar. I used pastels, color pencils and ink for the color, then used a dremel to inscribe some of the lines.

I happen to have Isaac Brumaghim, from the reality show Pacific Warriors, on my Facebook List and saw a really cool pic he took of a sea turtle a while back. I asked him if it would be ok for me to use the pic as a reference photo for some of my pieces and he agreed. So this is my first sea turtle.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to call these mixed media creations.

On more than one occasion friends and customers have remarked they look like a form of scrimshaw. So perhaps I’ll go with cedar scrimshaw for a while. Here is another new piece.

This one, along with the ‘Stripers Feeding’ piece I did a few weeks ago are headed to New Elements Gallery in Wilmington tomorrow with a new representative.

This is the first time I’ve wrapped the design around the wood. It was challenging, but I like how it turned out.
