Art Bowl for Kansas City Show

They are having a soup bowl auction during the KC show, to benefit their soup kitchen.  It was optional for the artists, but of course I wanted to donate one.  For the local artists, they can go do a ceramic bowl and fire it, etc., but not being local, I did my own thing.  It’s all done in Zentangle and since you can’t do a pencil sketch on a bowl, it’s straight ink to bowl… winging it.  😀

About Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson helped spark the transcendentalist movement with the essay Nature, which described his belief in the spiritual essence of humanity and the natural world. He was born in Boston on May 25, 1803. He was a Unitarian minister until he resigned in 1832 to become a philosopher and writer. He suffered the untimely deaths of many of his loved ones: three brothers, his first wife at age 20, and his eldest son at age five. Emerson died on April 27, 1882.
