Cynthia Emerlye: Working on finances was such a depressing job yesterday that I needed to create something whimsical at my "night studio" while relaxing in the evening. This is the result: a 5x7 inch scratchboard doodle I am calling "Heart Flower" because the black background came out looking like a heart with its bottom cut off. This is a two movie creation - just more practice with the wonderful Ampersand scratchbord. I tried using British Scraperboard recently but its flimsy cardboard backing doesn't provide the depth of dimension or hold up to rough use like the Ampersand masonite board does.
