Flick Ford hooks almost every fish he paints.The resulting fish portraits are, on one hand classical reminiscent of 19th century color plates, on the other hand they are very contemporary, featuring minute detail, shimmering iridescence, eye-popping depth and a genuine spirit of life never before captured in fine art prints.The Steelhead (oncorhynchus mykiss), is the anadromous (migrating) form of rainbow trout, native to the western North American coast and the Pacific Coast of Asia.The Walleye (stizostedion vitreum) is the largest member of the Percidae family of perch.Widely distributed in North American lakes and rivers, walleyes are arguably the most popular northern freshwater fish.

 





Preparing for the Feast
by John Weiss

One evening, while on the Turkey Foot Lake in Akron, Ohio, artist John Weiss saw a small family on their boat and the scene resonated with him. Musing on the subject of family relationships and childhood memories, he went back to the time his own father rented a row boat and took his brother and John fishing.
The result of this inspiration is Preparing for the Feast, a wonderfully backlit image of a father and son fishing with their faithful golden retriever.

"I enjoy painting things people can relate to," John Weiss says, "perhaps because I can connect to them myself.They're a familiar part of everyday life we can understand and enjoy. Some of my paintings tell stories, some focus on man's best friend and then there are those that capture the emotions of life. One of the jobs of an artist is to share with the world the moments which can only be described through their medium. Preparing for the Feast is one of those paintings.

Intent
by Judy Larson

“Like so many aspects of nature, Intent has several different meanings,” says artist Judy Larson. “This alpha female wolf is intent as she peers through the trees of an autumn forest at the viewer. But, ah, now that she has been seen, what is her intent?” Larson’s unique artistic signature is her meticulous scratchboard technique and art of concealment. With her dedication to the natural environment and aptitude for explicit detail, it’s not surprising that Larson would choose an art process that demands exacting skill. Passionately ecological, Judy Larson's highly detailed paintings are not only insightful and beautiful, but offer an array of secrets hidden within the images.The two wolf pups hidden in Intent represent the period in their young lives when wolves embark on a crash course of socialization in which they forge emotional bonds and establish their dominant status with their littermates.

The Misfits
by Judy Larson

The Misfits refers specifically to tragic fate of the many thousands of wild horses in Central and Southern California that once roamed the state where I live,” Larson says.“Several times a year, I travel through the Central Valley of California. Since reading of the thousands of horses that ran free upon that land, I find that I cannot pass through without imagining what a sight they would have made and what an appalling tragedy it was to lose them all in violence. I’d like the viewer to engage with the eyes of The Misfits horses and to remember that there are still wild horses on public lands today that love their lives and freedom every bit as much as those wild horses of yesteryear.The horses in The Misfits represent a few of the survivors, as well as some of the ancestors, of the wild horses of today.”

Search for the Spirit Within™
“On The Run” Series

The Misfits is the final offering in Judy Larson’s “On the Run” series, which focuses on animals in dire circumstances. “Perhaps by revisiting a few of these incidents in our country’s history, we will not be destined to repeat the events of the past, but will seek to value our wildlife,” says Larson. “My desire is to engage viewers on three levels: first, by revealing the beauty of animals through intricate detail; second, by concealing a hidden image that draws the viewer to examine the painting more closely and through which I can tell a story; and third, by promoting a deeper awareness of the environment on a level that will hopefully have an impact.”

To achieve her highly detailed paintings, Larson uses a claycoated, masonite backed art board called Claybord®.To produce an original drawing, she paints the subject solidly with black India ink to create a silhouette, scratching away the dried ink using hundreds of X-Acto® blades.The result is a magnificent, lifelike image. Once the subject has been totally scratched, it is a finished black and white illustration, ready for Larson to add color.The methods of adding rich layers of color are diverse. Larson prefers a combination of airbrush, gouache or acrylics for finishing, with frequent rescratching
for detail.
