Persephone in Spring

Winter 2012 010

Here is a colored pencil of a sculpture of Persephone, the goddess of seasons.  This drawing is part of a larger series based on the subject of sculpture in architecture. I personally would like to see the season of spring return as winter is becoming brutal.  Times like these when one can be thankful for warmth, shelter, and the company of friends and family.  Much to be thankful for in the New Year.  Happy 2014 everyone!

Pillsbury Hall Sculpture

Here’s a look at two views depicting the architectural sculpture of an old man under the eaves of Pillsbury Hall on the campus of the University of Minnesota.  The work was completed in colored pencil, Conte’ crayon, and pastel and on two very different papers; Canson colored and a Fabriano hot press showing two different vantage points and two different effects,  The drawings were part of a series looking at the relationship of the buildings we create and the architectural ornamentation that adorns them.
