On the Rocks
by Rod Frederick

“Open spaces are exciting,” Frederick says.“In them I have a chance to get away and perhaps get a glimpse of my favorite animal, the mountain goat”—which just so happens to be the subject of Frederick's latest Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Limited Edition, On the Rocks. “Few people have witnessed what artist Rod Frederick has seen first hand.

In this painting, he is able to bring the viewer on his adventures high above the timberline.“ The summers are short in the high country.This is a great vantage point, safe from predators and with few trees to block the view.”The treacherous terrain of On the Rocks is difficult hiking for even the advanced climber, but Rod Frederick is as adept as his subject, and well aware of the lengths to which one must sometimes go to create the perfect painting. And what a view it is!

Fatal Attraction
by Daniel Smith

With striking detail, stirring realism and unique composition, artist Daniel Smith enjoys wide acclaim for his spectacular depictions of wildlife. Bringing out the best traits in each of his wild subjects, Smith creating a sense of ‘aliveness’ that can only be described as magical.Traveling frequently to research his subjects in their natural habitat, Smith believes there is no substitute for personal experience in the field. Having had a lifetime fascination with Africa, he spends two or three weeks a year, allowing the artistic inspiration surround him.

“My African paintings are more aggressive,” Smith says of Fatal Attraction, which features an African leopard on the rim of Tanzania’s 10-mile wide volcanic Ngorongoro Crater. You always get the feeling that Smith’s subjects have just finished or are preparing to do something.“What I love about this combination is the way that the exaggerated depth within a short focal range adds contrast to the light and texture of both the leopard and its misty, moody background.”

Above the Falls
by Daniel Smith

“Everything I do is from a personal experience,” explains artist Daniel Smith,“whether it means working with a live bear as a model or waiting for the perfect last glowing light of the day, as was the case with Above the Falls.” Smith sees and paints the unique character of each of his animals and is wonderfully skilled at using nature’s elements to define his wild subjects.“What drew me into composing Above the Falls was the incredible perspective of the stream and how it moves to a small focal point.Any number of subjects could have worked in this dramatic setting, but the lumbering bear seemed a perfect candidate. My hope is that the authenticity that went into creating this canvas will be felt by the viewer.” It is this detail and scientific accuracy of Smith’s art which has gained him legions of collectors as well as the attention of such prestigious organizations as the National Geographic Society.

An African Experience
by Simon Combes

Artist, adventurer and conservationist Simon Combes called Africa home. His art portrays the grace, power and mystery of the wild with an exacting technique and attention to detail. Best known for his stunning images of African landscapes and wildlife, Combes’ paintings would be mistaken for photographs, except for life and warmth no Nikon can capture. In An African Experience, Simon’s focus is on the pride of the Serengeti. “Little outcrops of rock stand out like islands in the grassy sea of the Serengeti,” Simon said.“Formed millions of years ago during the cataclysmic upheavals and volcanic eruptions of Africa's birth, these rock groups form fantastic shapes. For Serengeti lions, rock garden oases are more than
watering holes.They provide lairs where cubs can be born, and havens to escape the heat of the day.They are also vantage points from which lions can watch the parade of life go by.”

Sunrise in the Wallowas
by Stephen Lyman

Far removed from any major metropolis, Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains have long been a Lyman family favorite. Originally introduced to the splendor of the Wallowas by his parents, Steve would often take family trips there with his sister Shauna, and brother Scott. Later in his life, Steve introduced his wife Andrea to the area, and she cherishes memories of time spent there together. “As I camped by this lake years ago, I awoke in the morning to watch the crest of the ridge catch fire with the golden light of sunrise,” Stephen said once in describing the inspiration for the painting. Steve submitted Sunrise in the Wallowas to The Greenwich Workshop in 1982 following not one, but two rejections of his work. Not only did this landscape convince Greenwich Workshop founder Dave Usher to finally publish Steve’s art, but he also bought the original painting to hang in the company’s offices.
