The Dry Side of Winter

by Rod Frederick

As fall turns to winter in the mountains, the sense of impending snowstorms is in the air. After a summer of grazing, the mule deer feel the change and know it’s time for their annual migration from higher to lower elevations on the mountain range. Their coats have changed from the orange/yellow of summer to gray. “I live in a mule deer range and have them in my yard all the time,” says artist Rod Frederick on the subject of his latest fine art limited edition. “Although the bucks become scarce during hunting season, I chose to show a buck and doe in this scene.They’re fascinating to watch and I wanted to show the seasonal migration in this painting. The buck is in full glory, his antlers at full growth. He’ll shed his antlers in the late winter and they’ll start growing again the next spring, each year growing progressively larger.”

First Light

by Simon Combes

“Cheetahs are enigmatic and perhaps the most intriguing of all the big cats to me,” says artist Simon Combes of the subject of First Light. “My encounters with cheetahs have been like meeting a person who has poise, elegance, class, fleeting moments of warmth and yet tantalizingly aloof. The challenge of painting cheetahs is two-fold: firstly, the chest is so pronounced in comparison to the head that in certain positions the animal can look positively grotesque. Secondly, I am often stumped at portraying the cat’s mood … what is it thinking behind that mask of haughty distain? So serious, so intent, so reserved, does this animal ever relax and have fun?

This painting was as much an indulgence in design as it was an attempt to capture that magical, early-morning, golden mistiness surrounding the surreal silhouettes of distant arcadia trees. I loved the elegant, s-shaped line from the cheetah’s nose to the tip of its tail.”
