Description

Silent Reverie is an original scratchboard with colorful ink layers by Lindsey Kiser.  The title comes from the idea of being in the present and noticing the beauty that is all around us. This colorful scratchboard of a monarch butterfly pollinating a milkweed flower bears witness to the artist’s direct observation of nature on her three acre sanctuary outside her home studio in rural Northern Kentucky.

THE ARTISTIC PROCESS

The scratchboard was etched or scratched with a sharpened sewing needle held in a pen vice to reveal the white clay under the black layer. Next, I applied colorful inks to the white scratches. Then I scratched the colorful layers again and repeated the process until I was happy with the result. Finally, a clear coat of varnish protects the artwork.
