Pyrography on Birds-Eye Maple Story: I was inspired to create this headboard because of a song written and sung by Canadian artist Gary Fjellgaar. The melody is haunting and "Somewhere on the Island" is still one of my favorite songs. The headboard won Second Place and Peoples Choice Award a the Brant Wildlife Festival on Vancouver Island.

"Dancing in the Moonlight" Herons
"Dancing in the Moonlight" Herons

Scratchboard - Story The moon has set early over the marsh, and clouds have veiled the constellations. In the pitch of blackness, two herons stand still, as herons have stood for millenia. Fish dart in the inky shadow, sensed but not seen. The moon peaks from behind the clouds exposing a school of shiners. With lightning thrust, the male seizes two minnows in the twin-prolonged spear and offers them to his make in a "dance in the moonlight"
