Williamson Coat of Arms

“Williamson Coat of Arms”
Pen and Ink on Illustration Board
16″ x 20″ (matted)

This coat of arms drawing was done as a wedding gift from wife to husband. The Williamson name is not uncommon and there are many different versions of the coat of arms from me to draw inspiration from. After a bit of research we found which one pertains directly to the intended and it is a combination of the Scottish and the English versions. The sword, chevron, suns and eagle heads come from this research. Within the flames of the suns you will find the initials E on the left and S on the right, representing the couple themselves. The husband being from Pittsburgh, the center of the drawing has the three rivers that flow through the city. Also, he was U.S. Army airborne which is where the wings and the parachute insignia come from. He was in the engineers corps and that distinction is the red and blue colored insignia that designates those troops. His rank and stripes are beneath that imagery. Finally, you will find a small representation of Florida at the very bottom of the composition with a star pointing out Isle Morada, a vacation spot often visited by the couple, and also where he proposed.
