I’m continuing in my South Dakota themed work lately. I’m also experimenting with rougher knife work. This relatively large Bison piece was accomplished primarily with the knife and so it has a rough, textural look that I’m really liking. When painting with a knife there are so many “happy accidents” and intricate little textural effects that would be impossible to create any other way. It’s been a lot of fun scraping and trowling on this one. Oh, and I’m wearing my Wall Drug hat too, so… that helps.
