The Incumbent

by Cassandra Barney

Don’t pick it up, and don’t put it down. - African Proverb

“I once saw an interview with Maya Angelou,” says artist Cassandra Barney, “in which she talked about praise and criticism. She said that if you keep to yourself—here symbolized by the figure’s hands folded in her lap—then the harsh words of others won’t bring you down and their flattery won’t over-inflate your ego. This regal woman understands the importance of community and family, but she knows, too, that in the end you must believe in yourself and be able stand on your own two feet. It is her inner strength that gives her such beauty.”

The popularity of Cassandra Barney’s elegant portraits has gained momentum over the last few years, from gallery walls to the Internet. “Thanks for making my heart happy with your art,” wrote one recent visitor to Barney’s weblog. This is essential art for a new generation—loving, growing and strong.

Men and Angels: The Art of James C. Christensen


The first collection of Christensen’s paintings in fifteen years, Men and Angels includes the artist’s work from his book illustration in the 1970s to his stunning and award-winning paintings today. From marriage to spiritual devotion to daily pet care, no subject is mundane once it has met Christensen’s inventive brush. Applying his award-winning eye for the fantastic to people, animals and landscapes alike, Christensen has created a rich and strangely familiar world that will take a lifetime to explore. His dual career as artist and educator has equipped him to be a great communicator, and that drive to communicate weaves through the images like a ribbon, over mermaids, under saints and around hunchbacks. This masterful body of work, represented in over 300 paintings and 256 pages, will be treasured by collectors, educators and art lovers.

Monarch of Mwaluganje

by Guy Combes

“Mwaluganje was set up primarily as an elephant sanctuary to help with the devastating poaching in and around Tsavo National Park,” says artist Guy Combes. “It has been so successful that now the sanctuary has an overpopulation problem. This river is a popular refreshment stop for substantial family groups, but this large bull came down one morning and stepped out into the sunlight, complimented perfectly by the outline of the Shimba Hills behind. At the moment I am drawn more to images of Africa that don’t necessarily conform to people’s preconceived ideas of it. Most people visit when it’s dry, but my favorite time is during and after the rains, when the greens are more vivid, the animals have more food and seem much happier as a result.”

Love is in the Air

by Rod Frederick

“Within a few weeks the golden leaves of the aspen trees will have fallen,” says artist Rod Frederick, “but at
this very second this bull moose has stumbled into a magical moment with his lovely lady. Autumn is my favorite season of the year, when the leaves begin to change and the large ungulates—the elk, deer and moose—try to take care of all the things they need to do before the long winter arrives.

“The scene shown here exists in no particular place, but is in fact a composite of several locations from
Alaska to Wyoming and Montana. These hardy spruce and fir trees have seen quite a lot of snow, but they’ve been around long enough to see that spring is never very far away . . . except in Alaska.”

Raising Daughters

by Steve Hanks

“As this family enjoys a walk along the beach in Del Mar, California,” says artist Steve Hanks,“a discussion with the younger daughter takes the full attention of her parents. This gives her older sister a chance to pursue her interests. “I’ve heard it said that when you raise a boy you only have one boy to worry about, but when you raise a daughter you have all of them to worry about. To illustrate this in Raising Daughters, the two girls and their mothers are the only females on the beach. I carried the story further by making the older daughter and the boy she is admiring into a couple in the far distant background, walking away.”

Transferring the Bear Knife

by Z.S. Liang

“Among the Blackfoot people of old,” says artist Z. S. Liang, “the power of the Bear Knife was legendary. It was believed to be so powerful that it could immobilize an enemy with fear at the sight of a warrior holding it! The warrior entrusted with the knife had to prove himself worthy of it, even during the ceremonial transfer.” American Museum of Natural History anthropologist Clark Wissler describes the object as “. . . a large dagger-like knife, to the handle of which was attached the jaws of a bear . . . which the recipient must catch when violently thrown at him . . .”. As a rule, the ‘keeper’ could not use any other weapon when going into battle. During the winter months the sacred knife would sleep wrapped securely in its bundle. The unwrapping ceremony was given with the coming of spring, coinciding with the time when bears emerged from hibernation. The original painting was unveiled at the 2008 Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale, where it cemented Liang’s reputation as the up-and-comer in Western art.

Ruby Rose in Time Out

by Emily McPhie

Like Venus rising from the foaming sea, Ruby Rose stands stolidly on her rock and waits. “Ruby Rose was born as I thought about how hard it can be to communicate,” says artist Emily McPhie, “especially for children. I thought about what it must be like to be in time out, to feel so misunderstood and isolated and that those ten minutes are never ever going to end. As we get older, we learn more words and how to better share our feelings, but I find that once in a while that misunderstood, isolated, time-out feeling creeps up on us all. It’s then that we’re glad we’re finally old enough to tell time and that ten minutes isn’t so long after all.” The sweetly inspired works of Emily McPhie make a perfect addition to any nursery, office, bedroom or living area and the ideal gift for the new mother in your life.

Prairie Thunder

by Joshua Spies

From the cave drawings of early man to Native American petroglyphs to the celebrated paintings of Catlin, McCarthy and Bama, the buffalo has long represented the freedom and possibility of our beautiful country. After a close brush with extinction, these noble animals have made an astonishing comeback, and the majestic sight of a herd of buffalo can once again lift the spirits of a weary cross-country traveler. The excitement of the wilderness comes to life in Joshua Spies’ Prairie Thunder. An event of epic proportions, the bulk of this massive herd comes rolling across the plains like an afternoon thundercloud. Spies, a native of South Dakota, has traveled the world in search of animals to paint but it is here, in the great open sky of the West, that his love of wildlife and skill with the brush shines brightest.

Indian Stories
by Morgan Weistling

This past June, to the surprise of absolutely no one with their finger on the pulse of the art world, Morgan Weistling’s Indian Stories was announced as the winner of the 2008 Prix de West Purchase Award. Of the painting Weistling said, “I wanted to capture the tradition of storytelling on canvas and worked on the idea for several years.The painting began with the idea of a grandfather telling stories of his adventures on the Oregon Trail. His grandchildren become completely absorbed by his tale of how he was befriended by the Blackfoot Indians and their gift of the pipe. While we can imagine that this is not the first time their grandmother has heard the story, her delight is in the children’s reactions.” Like The Quilting Bee, 19th Century Americana, which took another of the Western art world’s highest
honors, Indian Stories is destined itself to become a cherished part of American art history.
