Deep woods have always evoked a feeling of the unknown. In the enclosure of tall fir trees, limited visibility almost demands that the sense of hearing take over. At twilight it seems that the senses must be relied on even more heavily. As fresh snow falls, old and new trails are covered just about as quickly as they are made. The deep snow acts as a buffer reducing the intensity of all sounds in this already quiet environment.

Almost ghost-like, the gray wolf is silently on the move, ever attentive to the slightest sound. The Alpha male, followed closely by his mate, has sensed the presence of something nearby. It could be the crackling of branches under the weight of too much snow. It may be the wind blowing through the timbers. It may just be the silent but obvious snow fall. Or perhaps it's an intruder. You can be certain that these intriguing creatures will know the source of the "Sounds of Twilight."


Rod Frederick
The serene outdoors seem at odds with the wild and crazy character of this artist, who is as famous for his paintings as he is for his sense of humor and gaudy shirts! If seen on his constant excursions into the wilds, many a collector would tell of an eccentric pirate come to life, only this swashbuckling, seemingly fearless explorer was more anxious to gain and share the treasure of knowledge rather than riches. "I grew up in a house full of pets," he says. "My mom had a degree in fine arts and although my dad was a lawyer, he was a weekend painter." So his love of animals and art was sown early (also inspired when he received a gift of Roger Tory Peterson’s Field Guide to the Birds) and he attended Willamette University with a major in art and a minor in biology. "So I could know my subjects outside and in," he says. He put that education to good use as he embarked on a fine art career that would allow him to do what he enjoyed most; explore and learn. Frederick built his house in the middle of the Oregon wilderness and filled it with birds and animals. He’s hiked and camped in mountains and forests throughout the northwest U.S., Central America and East Africa. He knows the lakes and mountains as well as he knows the plains and deserts, not to mention almost all the creatures who live there, from the smallest bird to the largest elephant. And he will paint them on whatever size canvas suits them best. In addition to his peaceful views of animals in their natural habitats, he is also known for his paintings’ many different sizes and shapes—each chosen to best suit his perfectly balanced images of wildlife and wilderness.
