Happy 4th of July!

A throwback ink wash and crayon drawing that I completed many years ago. The sentiment still rings true, that despite our troubles I am proud to be an American. Especially, today as we celebrate another 4th of July and the freedom’s we enjoy.

God bless and be safe!

July 4th Images

The above are a few images that I have completed over the years of patriotic American themes.  In honor of this American holiday, I thought I would simply share them with my viewers.  Most have been previously posted on my blog and are linked to the original post.  I am proud to be an American regardless of what is currently occurring within and outside this great nation.  Be blessed this day and be safe! ~M

American Icons – Echos of the Past

GU372“An American Icon”       Mark Schutter ©2010        Watercolor Pencils

The American Bison is a true original and its image takes us back to a seldom remembered past when they roamed freely over the land prior to their decimation almost to extinction at the hands of man.  I tried to capture the simple beauty, strength and majesty of this truly magnificent animal.  This was previously painted a few years ago but the 4th of July got me to thinking about our great country so thought I would post it here.  Enjoy! ~M
