Untitled E-mail

envelopeColored Pencils on Envelope, 1998

I did this one during my student teaching in Screven County.  The Art teacher did a lesson on envelope art, and I really liked the concept.  There are a couple of artists out there that do this.  They then mail the envelope to their friends.  It gives the artwork some history.  This idea just popped into my head.  I guess it was the whole envelope/journey thing.  Anyways, this one leaves the viewer wondering:  Is the knight coming home, or is he out on a quest?  Well, you decide.  This work is still with Mr. Smith, the teacher I student-taught under, as he always keeps a work of art from each of his student teachers.  He made one for me to keep as well.
