Day 1 of my Our War series: August 1, 2010
MEDIUM: mixed-media hard pastel, soft pastel, chalk, ink on smooth watercolor paper.
A portrait of a Soldier, pencil, color pencil, pastel chalk pencil portrait by Cara Schingeck
This is the first image of an ongoing series that begins today, August 1, 2010, and continues until my brother’s return from deployment to the Middle East.
For my first war drawing I created this portrait of a United States of America Army Officer/Soldier because I believe that this officer/soldier epitomizes all of our troops in our war.
He is skillful-adept, with special ability, possessing special skills;
He is strict-maintaining discipline, rigorous in ensuring rules are obeyed, precise, exact;
He is unerring-unfailingly accurate and correct;
He is faithful-unwavering in belief, believing firmly in something, consistently loyal, consistently trustworthy and especially to a person, promise or duty.
This portrait shows to all of you who I believe are all of our brave soldiers in our war.
I love you H
