TwinCam 88 motorcycle engine

Mostly charcoal with some colored pencil on hot press paper. Turns out that chrome was difficult for me to depict, but all the effort learning to work with such contrast was definitely worth it.

About Sam Holliman

My grandmother encouraged me at an early age to draw, paint, doodle & sketch. Looking back at half a century of "life with a pencil in hand", I have to say that art  has been a prime factor in helping me develop patience and an appreciation for this marvelously complex and diverse Universe which we are blessed to inhabit. I hope somehow to learn to reflect in my art, the art of grace and goodness that has been shown to me.

I have sporadically engaged in art classes over the years, but mostly, I am self-taught. That being said, most of my best work has arisen out of having to rescue it from the brink of utter disaster! Discovery and risk-taking can be a chaotic and unsettling process, but ultimately, your horizons expand and you grow to know yourself better. I summarize those experiences thus: You never discover what sort of painter you really are, until you've painted yourself into a corner!

So I encourage you to grab your brush & find out what you're really made of.
