Out of the Dust
by Daniel Smith

Artist Daniel Smith had yet another stellar year in 2009. He enjoyed a two week research safari to Kenya last summer and in September, both of his entries to the Jackson Hole Art Auction sold. Also in September, Dan was included in the Eiteljorg Museum's Quest for the West Art Show and Sale, an invitational exhibition featuring 50 of the country’s outstanding artists. There he won the Harrison Eiteljorg Purchase Award for "Stillwater Crossing," a face-to-face with a buffalo in mid-stream—look for Greenwich Workshop’s fine art edition of this painting in 2010. All of this in addition to gallery shows and invitationals including the November “Small Works, Great Wonders” show at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum and an entry accepted at the prestigious “Birds in Art” exhibit at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.

"Out of the Dust," Daniel Smith newest fine art edition, is a SmallWorks™ gem of North America’s giant icons. You can almost smell the animal and feel the dry heat in this image. “My paintings are a reflection of many years of field work combined with a passion for the natural world,” says the artist. “My objective is to share my passion through a scientifically accurate realistic painting while maintaining artistic integrity.”

Court and Spark
by Daniel Smith

The complex social order of the wolf pack is as nurturing and caring an environment as one will find in the wild. An alpha male and female, or breeding pair, form the nucleus of this tight knit family. As with any potential relationship, first impressions will last a lifetime.

Few species have undergone the change in public perception, thanks to conservation and education efforts, like the wolf. Dan’s involvement with the Yellowstone Wolf Recovery Project in the mid-1990s, when wolves were first being reintroduced to the Park, reinvigorated his interest in this apex predator. "Court and Spark" stood out as a collector favorite at the Eiteljorg Museum’s 2010 Quest for the West Art Show and Sale.

Through both his website, www.danielsmithwildlife.com and his Facebook page facebook.com/pages/Daniel-Smith-Wildlife-Art, Dan allows collectors incredible access to both his studio and himself. It’s worth going to both locations and while you are there, sign up for his newsletter as well!

Winter's Embrace
by Daniel Smith

In the mid-1990s, when wolves (which had been eradicated from the park) were reintroduced to Yellowstone, Daniel Smith worked with the Yellowstone Wolf Recovery Project, hiking through the park to observe the habits and environmental impact of the newly introduced wolves. Since then, wolves have become one of his favorite subjects and he paints them in all seasons.

“Living in the mountains of Montana has provided me with ample time to experience snow,” says Smith. “Fresh snow creates wonderful textures and a quiet serenity that is always inspiring. Wolf reintroduction in the West has rekindled my interest in this extraordinary predator.

“My paintings are a reflection of many years of field work and my passion for the natural world. My objective is to share my passion through a scientifically accurate, realistic painting while maintaining artistic integrity.”

Fleeting Sun
by Daniel Smith

Daniel Smith’s paintings of wildlife, be it bear, moose, bison, crow or even otter, capture the complete essence of a species in a single moment, a brief pause in an otherwise very physical existence. Likewise viewing these paintings leaves us stilled, like hikers or mountaineers who round a bend and come unexpectedly upon the beauty and fierce intelligence of the animals who share our earth.

North American cougars are now largely extinct in the Northeast United States but are still prevalent in parts of the West, notably Wyoming which has the largest North American population. A solitary, stalk-and-ambush predator, cougar favor deer, elk, bighorn sheep and the occasional domestic cattle.

"Fleeting Sun" is unusual for Daniel Smith in that the sunlight is hitting his subject perpendicularly, highlighting the silky, tawny coat against the cool shadows of gathering dusk in the cliffs behind.

Summit Sanctuary
by Daniel Smith

Collectors of Daniel Smith’s Fine Art Editions are already familiar with his astonishing versatility. This artist is not gathering moss painting the same one or two species. He is equally at home painting bear in water as he is a thundering herd of buffalo or a mountain lion poised to leap. The subject of "Summit Sanctuary" is the Dall sheep in a perfect alpine landscape that shows the high elevation these mountaineers prefer. The Dall sheep inhabit the subarctic mountain ranges of Alaska and the Canadian northwest and their adaptation to this rugged high country environment has ensured their survival for thousands of years. Storm clouds may gather on the ridge top but this group of three relaxes in a spot of sun, taking in what must be an expansive view below.
