Kris Kristofferson by Marsha Elliott

This is an ink drawing I did of Kris a few years back from a photo I’d taken of him in concert wearing the shirt I designed from one of his quotes which said “You can leave Brownsville but you can never get Matamoros outta yer soul”

Pen & ink on paper

“To me, every work of art gives the viewer a glimpse of the spirit that resides in the heart of the artist that created it.”

Thank you for viewing my work. I consider each visitor a very important part of my creative journey.

    What a fabulous technique to convey Kris! He is immediately recognisable, yes his features are only made up of shadows. Great work Marsha.

  • Thank you, Lynda… was a fun project. I use to design the covers for his fan club’s newsletters which is how this image came about.

    Briliant Marsha. [ My husband and I designed 2 tees for The Harley-Davidson Riders Club GB…..have to say no where near as good as this !]

  • What a nice & kind thing to say, Val….but I don’t believe a word in regards to your last phrase. I’ve seen your incredible artwork, so I’m sure your designs must’ve been wonderful.

    This is quite different from your usual work. As usual, you did a professional painting.

  • Thank you very much, Pauline….it was done a very long time ago.
