“Open spaces are exciting,” Frederick says.“In them I have a chance to get away and perhaps get a glimpse of my favorite animal, the mountain goat” —which just so happens to be the subject of Frederick's Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Limited Edition, "On the Rocks."

In this painting, he is able to bring the viewer on his adventures high above the timberline. “The summers are short in the high country. This is a great vantage point, safe from predators and with few trees to block the view.” The treacherous terrain of "On the Rocks" is difficult hiking for even the advanced climber, but Rod Frederick is as adept as his subject and well aware of the lengths to which one must sometimes go to create the perfect painting. And what a view it is!


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.
