Attack of the Troll Girl!

I've been feeling very experiment-y lately.  Last week I played around with watercolor, acrylic and a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol:And this week I'm messing around with some scratchboard techniques.  Sometimes my experiments yield wonderful, inspiring discoveries.  Other times (like today for example) they yield a nice healthy dose of humility.
It is therefore my most humble pleasure to present you with Troll Girl:
She may be unintentionally creepy, but she sure did teach me a lot! ;)

The light is amazing! Now I want to try some too! :) I have been thinking about using an eraser to draw with~this is a similar concept.

Also~~I have friends who are traveling from PEI, CA to Boston~~any advice or great spots to check out?

Larien,

that's so funny, because I was thinking, as I was working, that scratchboard would kind of lend itself to your "me, crow, heart" series. :)

My husband and I had a conference and came up with a short list of our favorite touristy Boston activities:

1) Catching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park

2) The Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum (it's right near the Museum of Fine Arts, and it's an absolute jewel)

3) The Science Museum or the New England Aquarium

4) Taking a tour of (at least part of) the Freedom Trail (great for history buffs!)

If you or your friends need any more information, shoot me an email at kaetlynwilcox@yahoo.com

Cheers!
