2015 SCI National Conservation Artist of the Year, Cynthie Fisher has donated an original scratchboard on panel. Cynthie Fisher, a resident of Hamilton, Montana, has been a professional wildlife artist for 35 years. She’s accrued quite a list of national art awards. Cynthie’s artistic passion is purely wildlife, all species worldwide, as well as the local favorites here in Montana. She paints in oil, acrylic and scratchboard, and makes glass mosaics and mixed media sculpture. She also does bronze sculpture of many unusual species, making good use of her knowledge of anatomy and behavior. What is scratchboard? Scratchboard is done on a firm board that is covered first with white clay, then black ink. Scratches are made with anything that is sharp, such as an exacto blade or needle. The resulting scratches are white. Most scratchboard pieces are black and white, but I choose to add watercolor to the scratches, to create a colorful image. When finished the piece is varnished to protect it. It takes a long time to scratch off the image! But the result is uniquely detailed, showing every hair or feather. Don’t miss this chance to own a Cynthie Fisher original!  www.fisherart.com This is a 100% donation. We thank Cynthie Fisher for her donation. VALUE – $1,900
