The Fur Trader
by John Buxton

In the 18th century, the Iroquois controlled the hunting grounds of western Pennsylvania where John Buxton lives. They rarely granted a commission for a white (or European) to hunt there. They had learned the value of animal pelts in trade and had become dependent upon it. In The Fur Trader, a buyer proudly displays his purchases on this day of trade. Deer hides (the white bundles in the foreground) provided leather and were the item traded for most in bulk. Specialty furs like beaver and fox would bring a higher price when he, in turn, brings them to market. All in all, it is a profitable day for this frontiersman.

In the background, Indians examine the various goods that they will seek in trade for the pelts they have provided. Guns, powder, blankets, copper pots, mirrors where popular items. In due course, the Indians traded away much more than they bargained for. Native Americans were self-sufficient people prior to the arrival of the Europeans and the idea of trading for goods. Ultimately, it changed the way they lived.

The Campers
by Morgan Weistling

Artist Morgan Weistling’s penchant for extensive historical research is the collector’s windfall and The Campers provides a fascinating glimpse into how this modern master comes upon inspiration. “Often when I am researching for a big painting I find other ideas emerge,” says Weistling.  “While working on my painting Oregon Trail Family, 1848, I was inspired to paint this other idea focusing on the simple tents the frontier settlers often used. Set in the late 1800s, these  two little pioneers have made themselves at home in their temporary shelter. As the sun is setting and it gets darker, the candle is lit and the beans are served. Cherished items brought on the adventure lay strewn on the quilt with the carefree abandon of childhood.”

Joy
by Morgan Weistling

A figure painting without mood is just another picture of a person. There is no confusion about which we’re seeing here. With Joy, Morgan Weistling has created a fine art gem. The atmosphere is electric. The child simply radiates innocent delight. Morgan, with as few brushstrokes as possible, has us embraced by the inner light of childhood conjuring details, background and relationships from our own lives to create a canvas far greater in size than the dimensions of this wondrous SmallWorks™ edition. "We can only see what the light reveals to us,” says artist Morgan. “And, I’m all about capturing light.
