Red, White and Blue

by Alan Bean

"The space program represents what is truly great with America," says artist Alan Bean. "When I was an astronaut I felt each day that I had accepted a responsibility to do the right thing professionally in everything that I did. I was not alone in this as I saw this 'right stuff' code everywhere. It was a good feeling to know that all those around me were dedicated to making our nation's space exploration effort as good as it could possibly be. This red, white and blue feeling and theme carried over into everything we did. If everyone at NASA cut ourselves I believe we would all bleed red, white and blue."

Wet Way, Washington's Choice

by John Buxton

In 1755, George Washington acted as an aide de camp to British General Edward Braddock as the British attempted to retake the Ohio Country from the French. Although the expedition itself ended in disaster for the British and colonial forces, the campaign provided an opportunity for the young Washington to distinguish himself in battle. Three years later, when Scottish general John Forbes began to plan his own campaign to take Fort Duquesne, he called upon Washington for assistance. Washington suggested they attack via a southerly route, but Forbes insisted on developing a new passage inland instead. Fortunately, Forbes had made the right decision and successfully eradicated the French. Washington's Scout depicts an officer and two of his men investigating a possible route for what would become Forbes' road.

Witch of a Wave

by Christopher Blossom

The discovery of gold in California in 1848 had a dramatic impact on this country and the rest of the world. In the shipping industry, for example, speed and capacity became even more important for shipping goods to the booming city of San Francisco. It was during this time, at the height of the clipper ship era, that George Raynes built the Witch of the Wave at Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Built primarily for Far East trade, a typical voyage took her from the East Coast to California, and then around the world. Although she was a clipper ship, Witch of the Wave was not designed for extreme speed, but rather to accommodate a large amount of cargo. After her fourth voyage in 1854, she was chartered by and later sold to Dutch interests, who renamed her Electra.

"I like to find a way to show a ship in a slightly different way than the typical full-sail, sunny day picture," says Chris Blossom, "and here I show her under shortened sail in fairly blustery conditions, as the sun begins to set."

Guardians of the Waters
by Frank C. McCarthy

The desert lands of the southwestern United States contain a multitude of mysteries and artifacts of earlier peoples. The images carved into the rock face in Guardians of the Waters did, at one time, have specific meaning, but experts today do not agree on their precise translation. McCarthy’s dynamic portrait of a band of warriors racing past a group of symbols illustrates the grand scale and intriguing style of some of these petroglyphs. Perhaps these warriors know their true meaning.

Stayin' Alive
by Judy Larson

"Survival of the close-knit pack is usually the most important item on the wolf agenda," says artist Judy Larson, "but for Alaskan wolves, just staying alive has become a full time job. State-sanctioned aerial gunning has taken the lives of more than 600 wolves, and hunting by snowmobiles has increased. In Idaho and Wyoming, state officials are determined to annihilate wolves that wander outside of national parks. Wolves are fighting to stay alive. Only we can help them."

Sign Along the Trail
by Howard Terpning

The Native Americans had a multitude of ways to communicate with other members of their tribes. The Cherokee would bend a small sapling nearly to the ground, using the now-crooked tree to indicate a direction. Some of these crooked trees can still be seen today. Other trail-marking methods included piling stones or branches to create what are known today as cairns. If a trail was devoid of natural debris, a traveler might leave a personal item along the trail to attract attention and direct those who would follow. The horseman in this scene has found the marker left by his predecessor, confirming that he is on the right track.
