In days past there were many clipper ships that carried goods of all kinds around the world and were often attacked by pirates. Typical of most merchant type ships, they carried extra sails to capture the wind for greater speed to both deliver goods on time and to outrun pirates.
This drawing depicts a Bengal Tiger's piercing eyes as he is lurking in deep foliage waiting to pounce on his prey. Since the Tiger lives in several different countries around the world I have included a number of designs and symbols that might represent various cultures., Also included are random designs and graphics that I was inspired to include.
The focal point of this drawing is the Seattle-Tacoma Air Traffic Control Tower. The tower is unique to this airport as are other air traffic control towers with their individual designs. The various sketches around the tower illustrate farm, city, freeway, airport, river, etc. at different elevations.
The focal point of this drawing is two B17’s flying through stormy weather to get to Berlin in World War II. During 1943 and 1944 many bombing raids were conducted in an attempt to stop Hitler’s reign of terror on Europe. Many US planes were lost but over time the bombings contributed to the fall of Germany.
Motorcycles are very popular around the world and have been for years. However, when someone mentions "motorcycle" to me I immediately think of Harley Davidson. There are a number of top brands, but "Harley" seems to be the icon among bikes. This drawing features a customized Harley accompanied by various graphics, different bike style silhouettes, flames and pin striping.
The theme of this drawing centers on the past and the present. The past is represented by one of several steam engines that in the 1950’s sat on tracks located in front of the Great Northern Depot in Spokane, Washington. The Clock Tower is all that’s left today of the old depot, depicting the present.
Capturing a time from our American history, this drawing depicts our adventurous pioneers who forged westward in the 1800's in covered wagons. Included are a number of western symbols and mixed graphics.
This drawing resulted from a discussion I had with a friend regarding the “Double Edged Sword” spoken of in the Bible. After my research I discovered there were literally hundreds maybe even thousands of double-edged swords that have been fashioned throughout history. I selected six that caught my eye due to the intricacy of design.
Ships have always fascinated me, especially the old sailing ships. Having sailed on Navy ships for years, watching the sunset melt into the horizon, I was compelled to draw something along those lines. The sea, when calm, is a peaceful, tranquil place where the trials of everyday life just seem to slip away.
Beginning with the diver’s helmet, not knowing what to do next, the thought came to me where there was a diver there just had to be a shark, so I added one. Then the creative floodgates opened leading me to insert a variety of other marine life along with a splash of underwater foliage, coral and bubbles. With closer observation you’ll discover that the drawing appears as though it were being viewed from underwater.
In the Pacific during World War II, toward the end of the war, the B-29 was used extensively. The most famous of them was the Enola Gay. It not only made several bombing runs on Japan. President Truman ordered the decisive blow to end the war when it dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. In the drawing I show the B-29 as a symbol of freedom with the American flag above it. I also includes silhouettes of different fighter planes used during the war.
In the Bible John 14:6 says, “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. In this drawing I wrote , “Jesus is the way” rather than “I am the way”, for those who are not familiar with the passage so as to be clear that it is in fact through Jesus we are saved. I also symbolically picture the Father (the brilliance behind the cross), the Son (the cross in the foreground) and the Holy Spirit (the Dove in the lower left). I drew this for my family and offer a 10"x13" print for free.
