Black and White Sketch Art by Mark T. Seidl


Mark was a gifted artist and had a passion for black and white sketch art from early childhood.  Cancer was a catalyst for him to share his gift with others.  Sadly, Mark passed December 29, 2023, from a rare melanoma. Each sketch came from the heart and was inspired by spirit.  We hope you enjoy them.

The spirit of the bear indicates it is time for healing or using healing abilities to help self or others. The bear medicine emphasizes the importance of solitude, quiet time, rest The spirit of the bear provides strong grounding forces.

Dolphins balance their animal nature with a higher intelligence. They trust their instincts and intuition rather than overthinking things. They live peacefully with other species, including humans. It isn’t uncommon for dolphins to swim and play around swimmers and boats. Their gentle natures remind us to look for the good in everyone and strive to bring peace to our lives and those around us. The dolphin is symbolic of peace and harmony, protection, playfulness and joy, resurrection, inner strength and cooperation.

 The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections.
