    Default I am old to astronomy art but new here



    Hello all at Astronomy Forum

    Allow me to introduce myself. I am Mark Seibold; astronomer and artist in Portland Oregon in the US. You may have seen many of my solar pastel sketches in Spaceweather.com many times and once in Astronomy Picture of the Day Nov 17th 2006 or elsewhere.

    My artwork is seen regularly in the Cloudy Nights Astronomy Forums. Could any of you direct me as to where the appropriate place for displaying observational astronomy sketches is here in your forum?

    Allow me to enclose a couple here for starters.





    Thanks for any information, -Mark *Unfortunately, your sire is not allowing images at this time (please advise) **In the mean time, feel free to go to The Cloudy Nights Astronomy Forums and see "Members Galleries" icon at bottom left arrea of home page of forums. Click on that icon and at next wondow, top right, enter my name without spaces > markseibold

    Saturn and the moon sketched as a close pair in early January 2009. Strathmore blue ridgeline paper in 19" X 25" used with various pastel chalks.


    Cresent Moon with Earthshine over Portland Oregon. 19" X 25" black Strathmore 500 series paper used with various pastel chalks

    A study of the M42 Orion Nebula observed from dark skies and light polluted
    inner-city skies. The pair are sketched on a single sheet of black Strathmore Artagain paper with various pastel chalks.

    Hi Mark

    Welcome to AF!

    I have admired your work many times

    You can't post links etc here for a brief period due to a minimum number of posts requiring Mod approval. Its an integral part of our spam filtering system. Sorry but it is an unfortunate necessity.

    Meanwhile your post has prompted a hurried Admin/Mod conference and although we do not, at this time, have a sketching forum as such, this will be in place for you and others shortly

    LOL sorry Vinnie, I have been quick to make a new forum for Mark for sketching (Tiyda has been posting sketches too which could be put here).

    Incredible. Just incredible. Actually beyond words (and beyond worlds?)

    I think you need two sub-forums. One for sketches and one for unbelievable artwork.

    I would be embarrassed to put any sketches I might do in the same forum as Mark's.

    Oh, and Vinnie, when I was looking for my first telescope how come you didn't tell me aout the one that would get both the moon and the city?

    Well Mark,

    you got our Administrator moving quicker than usual.LOL. Looks like its all up and running.

    I'm not sure whether your next few uploads will end up in the mod queue or not now (its usually an automated process) but no sweat we will approve them.

    One way or another you will soon be open to upload as you wish

    Thanks for sharing your works with us
