This beautifully framed piece features an original piece of watercolor artwork glass-framed in an attractive two inch wide black resin frame with a double mat. The outer dimensions of the framed piece are approximately 17” wide x 24.5” high, although the exact size will vary according to the size of the original piece of art.

At the core of the framed piece is the actual piece of original artwork as painted by the artist on textured 100% rag, water-marked watercolor paper. In many cases the original artwork has handwritten notes in pencil from the artist (be sure to “See the actual artwork without the frame” elsewhere in this website). Simply put, this is beautiful, one-of-a-kind artwork.

The outer mat is a rich textured black acid-free mat with a decorative inset white v-groove, while the inner mat is a complimentary colored acid-free mat reflecting one of the team’s primary colors. The website image of this framed piece shows the mat color that we suggest (Medium Blue), but since each piece is custom framed, we are happy to use whatever color mat you wish (depending on availability) – our standard mat colors are:

Light Blue / Dark Blue / Brown / Maroon (close to brown) / White / Silver / Gold / Yellow (bright yellow) / Green (dark green) / Orange / Purple / Red (bright red, somewhat close to PMS 186)

Beneath the artwork is a silver plate with black text describing the original artwork. The text for this piece will read:

This original, one-of-a-kind watercolor painting of the 2002 Seattle Seahawks road uniform is the original artwork that was used in the creation of this Seattle Seahawks uniform evolution print and tens of thousands of other Seattle Seahawks products that have been sold across North America. This original piece of art was painted by artist Bill Band for Maple Leaf Productions Ltd.

Beneath the silver plate is a 3” x 9” reproduction of a well known, best-selling print that celebrates the history of the team. The print beautifully illustrates the chronological evolution of the team’s uniform and shows you how the original art was used in the creation of this print. If you look closely, you will see that the print features the actual artwork being offered for sale. The 3” x 9” print looks like this:

The piece is framed with an extremely high quality framing glass. We have used this glass style for many years with excellent results.

Each framed piece also comes with a two page letter signed by Scott Sillcox describing the history behind the art. If there was an extra-special story about your piece of art, that story will be included in the letter. When you receive your framed piece, you should find the letter lightly attached to the front of the framed piece.

If you have any questions, at any time, about the actual artwork or about any of the artist’s handwritten notes on the artwork, I would love to tell you about them. Simply email me, Scott Sillcox, at and I will tell you everything I can about your original piece of art. The artists and I spent well over ten years of our lives creating these pieces of original artwork, and in many cases there are stories I can tell you about your actual piece of artwork that might add an extra element of interest in your one-of-a-kind purchase.

Entering his fourth year as Seahawks head coach, Mike Holmgren had some new issues to consider, not the least of which was the newly realigned NFL that saw his team move from the AFC West to the NFC West.  The new NFC West division provided the Seahawks with a new set of rivals: The San Francisco 49ers, the St. Louis Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.Also new to the Seahawks in 2002 was their home stadium. After playing the 2000 and 2001 seasons at the University of Washingtons Husky Stadium, the Seahawks were ready to begin playing in their new home: Seahawks Stadium (now called Qwest Field) immediately beside the Mariners Safeco Field. But the happy story ends there. The Seahawks first home game was a week two loss 24-13 to the Arizona Cardinals.  And the bad karma continued as they dropped 5 of their first 6 games on their way to a 7-9 final record (3-5 at home).Another new challenge for head coach Paul Holmgren was the starting quarterback position. In a Week-7 game QB Trent Dilfer injured his Achilles on the road against the Dallas Cowboys. The good news was that his backup, Matt Hasselback, came on to lead the Seahawks to a 17-14 victory. Hassleback would play the remainder of  the season and the Seahawks finished the season on a strong note winning their final 3 games. Hasselback passed for 3,075 yards and RB Shaun Alexander led the NFC with 18 touchdowns. But as noted earlier the Seahawks finished the season out of the playoffs with a 7-9 record.To go along with the new division and conference, the new home stadium and the new starting QB, in 2002 the Seahawks introduced a new look for their uniforms - it was the teams first major uniform change in 26 years.The uniforms' predominant color is "Seahawks blue" (a somewhat indescribable blue, perhaps slate blue) with trim colors of navy and bright green.The club's road uniform features a white jersey with Seahawks blue sleeves. At the bottom of the sleeves, we see Navy blue and bright green striping. On the front of the jersey there are large Seahawks blue numerals trimmed in black and smaller TV numbers, done in the same color scheme, on the tops of the shoulders. The teams nickname is spelled out in Seahawks blue lettering below the V of the collar. The pants are blue, with Navy and green striping down the side.When the Seahawks unveiled their new uniform they had two helmet designs- one in silver and one in Seahawks blue. The NFL would not allow the team to use both so they had a choice to make. The Seahawks decided to take a fan poll to determine which helmet the public preferred. The overwhelming majority voted for the blue and from that point on Seahawks blue replaced silver as the teams official helmet color.If you look closely, you'll notice an NFL Equipment patch on the jersey's neckline and on the upper left thigh of the pants. This style NFL equipment patch, which is a bit bigger than the size of a golf ball, was added to all NFL team uniforms in 2002 The NFL Equipment patch replaced the previous NFL shield patch (which was the size of an average postage stamp) that had been worn on uniforms in the same two places (below the V of the neckline and on the upper left thigh) almost without exception since the 1991 season.
