Preliminary drawing ideas on tracing paper.

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

Art – A Productive Day in September

A Productive September Sunday - 2013

Today in the Pacific Northwest it rained with thunder and lightning so it was a perfect day to stay indoors and create art.  With some upcoming events this fall and winter I wanted to get some ideas and designs down on paper.  I am happy with the results especially since I spilled a bottle of ink all over my art table first thing, even splashing some of the designs.  But I got creative and managed to make something out of the chaos!

Forged in Fires

forged in fires ~ beyond the stars

comes the promise ~ seeking lost hearts

 shattering the dark ~ forever hope remains
