More Cedar Scrimshaw Pieces

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.

Here are a few new pieces..The lions are my favorite so far.

As usual these are drawn by hand and then I use a dremel to engrave the designs into the wood. I have started using pastels, water colors and regular color pencils on these too. I think they are coming along nicely.
