Judy Larson - Stars and Stripes -  LIMITED EDITION CANVAS Published by the Greenwich Workshop

“In times of triumph or tragedy, of victory or defeat, of elation or sorrow, the symbols on our flag represent unity,” explains artist Judy Larson. “Despite our differences, and they are many, we pull together in crises, congratulate each other on both national as well as personal successes, and empathize with those who are suffering.

Can You Find the Spirit Within?

“Stars and Stripes incorporates thirteen stripes on the feather in the horse’s tail, 50 stars on the horse’s rump, and a hidden eagle on the horse’s face. All are symbols of our great land, the United States of America.”

One might ask why Judy chose a horse as the expression of our unity. Horses,of course, changed their way of life for the Native People, who used them to hunt, to carry, to trade, and for war. Pioneers used horses to settle the American West and then to develop the land. The decorated horse depicted in Stars and Stripes, however, represents the unity enjoyed by both man and horse. Each relishes companionship and seek the security and safety provided by being together.

Look Closer... The time-consuming art of scratchboard is unparalleled in its detail, allowing Judy Larson’s seamless concealment of imagery within her subject. To view the extraordinary hidden images within Larson’s work, Click here. Judy Larson always knew she was going to be an artist. She was surrounded by them as a child, and was particularly inspired by her father, a professional illustrator. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Commercial Art from Pacific Union College in Northern California, Judy Larson then spent the next 17 years as a commercial artist, illustrator and art director. In 1988, influenced by her love of nature and animals, Judy devoted her time to wildlife art. Her primary focus in each of her paintings is the animal, with the horse and wolf as a recurring subject. Larson uses a clay-coated, Masonite backed art board called Claybord®. To produce an original drawing, she paints the subject solidly with black India ink to create a silhouette. Larson then scratches away the dried ink using hundreds of X-Acto® blades and the result is a magnificent, lifelike image. Once the subject has been totally scratched, it is a finished black and white illustration, ready for Larson to add color. Larson prefers a combination of airbrush, gouache or acrylics for adding rich layers of color, with frequent rescratching for detail. For Judy Larson, whose underlying message is always passionately ecological, her medium of scratchboard, as well as her "art of concealment™," allows her "to take the viewer with me." Explains Larson, "My desire is to engage viewers on three levels: first, by revealing the beauty of animals through intricate detail; second, by concealing a hidden image that draws the viewer to examine the painting more closely and through which I can tell a story; and third, by promoting a deeper awareness of the environment on a level that will hopefully have an impact." Larson is extremely passionate about her love of wildlife and supports a number of environmental endeavors. Two books have been published featuring her work: Hidden Spirits, Search-And-Find Scenes from the American West, a Random House children’s’ book, and The Spirit Within, a coffee table book. Larson is a member of the Society of Animal Artists. She lives and works in California. For more information, visit www.judylarson.com
