Worked on this design over the past weekend. This winged horse design represents a rising of hope and how the light of the sun can chase away the dark and renew that hope within us. I am not sure if it is finished but wanted to post it anyway. What are your thoughts?
The chaos of creative expression and the creation of art is limitless. I have been asked how long it takes to create certain pieces of art and that is often hard to answer.
The final center design above combining the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos logos took many hours from idea to completion. There were many preliminary drawings of ideas, further sketches on different papers and color studies using pastels and colored pencils.
Art does not just happen but the journey from vision to completion is fraught with twists and turns, stops and starts. I would not have it any other way, that is where the joy resides.
Thanks for stopping by! ~M
With the Super Bowl almost upon us I still am not sure who to root for. Growing up in Idaho I was raised a Broncos fan but now living in Washington the Seahawks are … well I think you understand my dilemma.
So I came up with the idea to combine the two logos into one. So is this a “BroncHawk” or “Seaonco” ? The final drawing was completed using pastels on 12×9 inch gray pastel paper. The first image is the untouched original, the second has a faded black border added and the third is the preliminary drawing ideas.
Enjoy and feel free to share the images! ~M

(From top to bottom – photo shopped design in sepia tones with a torn border and defined by a black flood fill. The middle design is the photo shop negative image of the top design with the same torn border and flood bill design. The bottom design is the original abstract watercolor painting done in 2008 on cold press paper, 11 x 14 inches.)
I have added a new page > Art Resources where I will post lessons, to do projects, links and other art related information. The first project ‘Grid Drawing’ is up, visit the page to view samples and to request your free complimentary grid drawing project. Perfect for those homeschooling or for anyone who wishes to improve their art skills regardless of age or skill level.
Keep practicing! ~M
