West Texas Cow Hunter by Martin Grelle

Lot 5S: West Texas Cow Hunter by Martin Grelle

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: West Texas Cow Hunter by Martin Grelle - Edition Size: 150 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 24 x 24 Release Date: 2-2011 ???.Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting, or the American cowboy in the dusty cattle-working pens, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle studies diligently to portray the diverse cultures of the American West accurately and with sensitivity. His knowledge of the cowboy?s way of life, gained from his time spent horseback on ranches during the annual Cowboy Artists of America?s (CAA) trail ride, as well as the time spent with local ranchers and friends, is evident in his contemporary cowboy paintings. The many hours spent in museums, at historical re-enactments, in visiting with experts on Native American culture, and reading from his extensive library, have helped him to bring his vision of the Plains Indian culture to life on canvas. Grelle was born when his family lived on a small farm a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he still calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, including many of Grelle?s close friends. They all enjoy getting together to "talk art?, critique each other?s work, and exchange ideas. Many of them, including Grelle, teach annual workshops through a local art facility known as the Bosque Conservatory, which has begun to have a national presence. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment. The artist?s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With excellent guidance from James Boren, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Since then, Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek subject matter for his work. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist?s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative. For more than 30 years Grelle has made a career of his art, and has won awards of both regional and national importance. In 1995, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, and he is one of the younger active members. He is currently serving his second term on the board of directors for that organization, and participates in the Annual CAA Exhibition and Sale at the Phoenix Art Museum each October. Grelle won the CAA People?s Choice Award in 2002, for his painting Monarchs of the North, and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award in 2008, for his painting Newlyweds. He has also been privileged to participate in other major juried shows across the United States. Included in that list are the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which he has participated in each year since 1995, the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition & Sale at the Autry National Center, and the inaugural Quest for the West Exhibition & Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum. Awards of merit include the Prix de West Purchase Award, which he won in 2002 for his painting Teller of Tales, and again in 2005, for his painting Two Coups, making him one of only 6 artists to have won the top award twice. Grelle has also won twice the Nona Jean Hulsey Ramsey Buyer?s Choice Award at Prix de West, first in 2004 with Signs Along the Snake, and again in 2006, for Dust in the Distance. The artist is represented by Overland Gallery of Fine Art, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a one-man show is held for Grelle each March. The 2008 show marked Grelle?s 20th anniversary one-man show with the gallery. The artist has been profiled in a number of publications, including the magazines Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Persimmon Hill, American Cowboy, Western Horseman, Wild West, and InformArt. His work has also been showcased on the covers of many of these publications. Grelle says humbly, "I thank God for the ability and the opportunities He has given me, and I hope I can continue to grow and learn more with each finished painting. I am honored by everyone who collects my work, and I will always strive to create artwork worthy of their attention, and their investment.?

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Hosanna! by Tom duBois - Edition Size: 500 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 40 x 18.5 Release Date: 3-2004 ???.Tom duBois? outlook on life is eternally young. He has the gift of seeing through a child?s eyes ? transforming the realistic into the magical. He is fond of a quote by Picasso, "Every child is an artist?the problem is remaining a child once you grow up.? The artist?s unassuming and humble personality, combined with his outstanding talents, result in highly imaginative works of art unique to his creative genius. Always a delightful artist and guest at gallery shows, duBois has amazed and entertained his collectors with not only his artistic abilities, but also his acoustic guitar and songs. duBois loves to travel for research on the animals and people featured in his paintings as well as for period clothing. The artist has been known to stop people on the street if they fit his idea for a person he plans to include in an image. And, with his winning smile and honest persona, he is rarely turned down by one of his potential "models.? With meticulous research and attention to detail, duBois creates rich, intricate works that astound the viewer. Over a short period of years, duBois was catapulted to the pinnacle of the limited edition art world. His most famous images are from his Noah?s Ark Series, the Disney Discovery Collection, the phenomenal Hosanna, and other religious works of art. With sell-out editions on each release, duBois has established himself as an artist who captures the whole story in his paintings. In the Noah?s Ark images, the artist created fantastic, colorful scenes depicting the construction of the Ark, the Ark as it sailed the endless water covering the earth, the gathering of the animals for their journey on the Ark, and the celebration of the waters receding as Noah and his family returned to land. duBois? "Hosanna,? depicting Christ being led into the City of Jerusalem through the throngs of people who worshipped Him as He bestowed His love on them, is a masterpiece of creativity that has been compared to some of the world?s most admired religious works. For the Disney Discovery Collection, duBois created amazing images featuring five of the Disney characters?Snow White, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, and Cinderella?images that astounded the art world. Hidden within the images were characters and items from each story?to view one of these works is truly incredible. duBois is a unique talent whose imagination knows no bounds.

Passing Through by Cynthia Decker

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Passing Through by Cynthia Decker - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Signed - Museum Wrapped Dimensions: 36 x 36 Release Date: 9-2012 ???.As a child, I would draw and paint at any opportunity. My Mother taught computer science at a local college, and we had a computer in the house when not very many people had home computers. With a computer instructor for a mom, and an engineer for a dad, my earliest art materials were green and white perforated computer paper, and I used to doodle on used punch cards. I began drawing on the computer ?pixel by pixel in green and black monochrome? on an Apple II computer when I was about 13. Throughout high school and college I studied and practiced drawing and design,and as the technology became available to me I started digital painting, while continuing to work in traditional media; pastels, acrylics and oils. I left college to begin a graphic design career and continued to teach myself and explore new digital media. I began using 3D software in 1998 and was immediately hooked. Initially, my portfolio was exclusively online, and I participated in many web-based galleries. People began requesting prints through my website and after doing research into fine art printing, I began creating and selling high resolution archival prints of my work in 2002. That same year I had my first solo show, and I believe it was the first show of non-photographic digital work in North Carolina.

Main Interest While Growing Up Around San Francisco Was Sports. As A Young Teenager, Hanks Pursued Surfing And Tennis With Passion.

"people See Different Things In My Paintings Because We All Have Different Backgrounds And Feelings.? Hanks Highly Collected Nudes Convey An Introspective Solitude That Prompts The Viewer To Think About His Or Her Own Life And Path. ?women Occupy A Special Niche In My Sensitivity.

Cowboy Choreography by Bruce Greene

Lot 14S: Cowboy Choreography by Bruce Greene

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Cowboy Choreography by Bruce Greene - Edition Size: 250 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 18 x 36 Release Date: 3-2012 ???.Bruce Greene is a Western painter who has ridden trails and experienced the cowboy life he portrays in the very narrative images he creates. The artist is a native Texan who has reached the pinnacle of his profession through hard work and an extraordinary talent for painting the story of one of our country?s most revered icons, the American cowboy. His scenes of contemporary cowboys going about their daily work are admired and collected across America. Several years ago, Bruce began making annual trips to join in the spring work on the legendary JA Ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon of north Texas. As Greene describes his trip, ?I go up there and stay on the chuck wagon with the JA hands and the neighbors that have come to help. We ride a lot of miles in rough country. It can be cold, hot, windy, and wet. As a matter of fact, it can be all of these in one day. A fella' could get lost in some of the mesquite or cedar thickets. Of course, we work a few cows on our place and help out a neighbor now and then, but the JA trip has been a real inspiration for me each year. I am absolutely sure that this experience has greatly affected my artwork. It seems necessary, to me, in order to depict the contemporary cowboy with accuracy and feeling. My good friend, Red Steagall, calls it ?getting the dust in your nose.? For me, that dust makes the difference.? One of Greene?s most enjoyable, recent projects was creating a painting for the Texas Rangers Association Foundation commemorating and honoring the history and high standards of the Texas Rangers. The painting, titled ?The Ranger Code,? was purchased by members of the Foundation?s board and is in the permanent collection of outstanding Ranger art at the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco. Greene was elected to membership in the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America in 1993 and served as its President in 2003. The artist and his family live on a small ranch in the historical community of Norse, near Clifton, Texas. Greene?s studio sets on the edge of a hill behind his home. From this vantage point, large north windows offer a continuous view of the Texas Hill Country, a few Hereford cows, and the occasional whitetail deer. ?It is a wonderful blessing to be able to make a living for my family doing what I love in this beautiful place,? says Greene. Greene?s works are represented by several well known galleries in the Southwest. He has presented his art in annual shows and exhibition such as the Cowboy Artists of America Exhibition, the Prix de West Show at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and the Autry Museum of Western Heritage Sale, just to name a few, and other prestigious venues.

It?s an expression of what I think the true answer to life is.? A native Texan, Dyke is the consummate painter of what makes the Lone Star State so unique. As the title of one of his paintings, the artist chose "Deep in the Heart?? of his native land.

His attention to detail results in some of today?s most beautiful, intricate paintings in the traditional, realistic genre.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Between Friends by Christa Kieffer - Edition Size: 495 - Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 28 x 22 Release Date: 11-1999 ???.Christa Kieffer was born in Tubingen, Germany. As a child, her earliest memories are of ?soaking up the atmosphere of a particular place or region.? An intuitive kindergarten teacher recognized Kieffer?s potential and provided her with a quiet place to draw and paint. The artist studied extensively throughout Europe then moved to the United States to attend the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Working primarily in oil on canvas, Keiffer often used glazes to create a luminous look and feel to her paintings. She is motivated by her perception of the excitement of community in its entire splendor and believes that this experience was most expressive during the Belle Epoque era in France. Ms. Kieffer traveled to Paris frequently, always rising in the early hours of dawn to walk the boulevards and photograph the enchantment of a city cloaked in the mystery and memories of a glorious past. ?My paintings are mostly about the ?City as Playground? at a point in time when there seemed to be the perfect balance of excitement and leisure, movement and tranquility, small pleasures in the midst of architectural splendor. The streets and thoroughfares offered the joy of movement and variety to be viewed from an elegant sidewalk café of a stroll down the avenue. Here was the human spectacle in all it exuberance and, yet, the safety of community. ?I chose to paint this more gracious time mostly at dusk, the ?magic hour,? that span of mellow time between a perfect spring or summer day and the excitement of the coming cosmopolitan nightlife. To me, the transition of light is especially appealing. I get great pleasure out of capturing the effects and juxtaposition of natural and man-made light in an atmosphere of cultural layering.? Ms. Kieffer lived for many years in California in a small community surrounded by Point Reyes National Park. She passed away after a lingering illness in 2004.

Description: Toscana 2 by Cynthia Decker - Edition Size: Open - Open Giclee Poster Dimensions: 36 x 36 Release Date: 9-2012 ???.As a child, I would draw and paint at any opportunity. My Mother taught computer science at a local college, and we had a computer in the house when not very many people had home computers. With a computer instructor for a mom, and an engineer for a dad, my earliest art materials were green and white perforated computer paper, and I used to doodle on used punch cards. I began drawing on the computer ?pixel by pixel in green and black monochrome? on an Apple II computer when I was about 13. Throughout high school and college I studied and practiced drawing and design,and as the technology became available to me I started digital painting, while continuing to work in traditional media; pastels, acrylics and oils. I left college to begin a graphic design career and continued to teach myself and explore new digital media. I began using 3D software in 1998 and was immediately hooked. Initially, my portfolio was exclusively online, and I participated in many web-based galleries. People began requesting prints through my website and after doing research into fine art printing, I began creating and selling high resolution archival prints of my work in 2002. That same year I had my first solo show, and I believe it was the first show of non-photographic digital work in North Carolina.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: New Wealth for the Blackfeet by Martin Grelle - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 1-2013 ???.Whether painting the Native Americans in a dramatic, picturesque setting, or the American cowboy in the dusty cattle-working pens, Martin Grelle captures the spirit, beauty, and vastness of the West in his historically-accurate, compelling images. Grelle studies diligently to portray the diverse cultures of the American West accurately and with sensitivity. His knowledge of the cowboy?s way of life, gained from his time spent horseback on ranches during the annual Cowboy Artists of America?s (CAA) trail ride, as well as the time spent with local ranchers and friends, is evident in his contemporary cowboy paintings. The many hours spent in museums, at historical re-enactments, in visiting with experts on Native American culture, and reading from his extensive library, have helped him to bring his vision of the Plains Indian culture to life on canvas. Grelle was born when his family lived on a small farm a few miles from the small, Central Texas town of Clifton, which he still calls home today. This beautiful and historic area has become a mecca for artists, including many of Grelle?s close friends. They all enjoy getting together to "talk art?, critique each other?s work, and exchange ideas. Many of them, including Grelle, teach annual workshops through a local art facility known as the Bosque Conservatory, which has begun to have a national presence. Grelle treasures this feeling of community and the opportunities he is afforded living in such a creative environment. The artist?s talents were evident as a child and he began painting at an early age. Luckily for the budding painter, acclaimed Western artists James Boren and Melvin Warren had settled in the same area while he was in school. With excellent guidance from James Boren, a full-time artist was born in his early twenties. Since then, Grelle has studied and traveled widely to seek subject matter for his work. Working primarily in oils on canvas, the artist?s figures and landscape become one in a painterly style rich in vibrant color and narrative. For more than 30 years Grelle has made a career of his art, and has won awards of both regional and national importance. In 1995, he was elected to the Cowboy Artists of America, and he is one of the younger active members. He is currently serving his second term on the board of directors for that organization, and participates in the Annual CAA Exhibition and Sale at the Phoenix Art Museum each October. Grelle won the CAA People?s Choice Award in 2002, for his painting Monarchs of the North, and the Ray Swanson Memorial Award in 2008, for his painting Newlyweds. He has also been privileged to participate in other major juried shows across the United States. Included in that list are the Prix de West Invitational Art Exhibition and Sale at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, which he has participated in each year since 1995, the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition & Sale at the Autry National Center, and the inaugural Quest for the West Exhibition & Sale at the Eiteljorg Museum. Awards of merit include the Prix de West Purchase Award, which he won in 2002 for his painting Teller of Tales, and again in 2005, for his painting Two Coups, making him one of only 6 artists to have won the top award twice. Grelle has also won twice the Nona Jean Hulsey Ramsey Buyer?s Choice Award at Prix de West, first in 2004 with Signs Along the Snake, and again in 2006, for Dust in the Distance. The artist is represented by Overland Gallery of Fine Art, in Scottsdale, Arizona, where a one-man show is held for Grelle each March. The 2008 show marked Grelle?s 20th anniversary one-man show with the gallery. The artist has been profiled in a number of publications, including the magazines Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Southwest Art, Western Art & Architecture, Persimmon Hill, American Cowboy, Western Horseman, Wild West, and InformArt. His work has also been showcased on the covers of many of these publications. Grelle says humbly, "I thank God for the ability and the opportunities He has given me, and I hope I can continue to grow and learn more with each finished painting. I am honored by everyone who collects my work, and I will always strive to create artwork worthy of their attention, and their investment.?

Description: Churchill by Andy Thomas - Edition Size: 35 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 18 x 24 Release Date: 11-2010 ???.Andy Thomas is not only an immensely talented painter, but also a storyteller with the images he creates. His subject matter consists of a variety of images from historical events to intimate moments of everyday life. The artist?s desire to create is funneled into the area of painting realism that ranges from very loose to very tight. Thomas?s medium is primarily oil, but he also works in watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, pencil, and ink wash. He is also a very accomplished sculptor. Primarily self-taught, Thomas began his professional art career in 1991 after sixteen years with a major advertising agency. In his studio, the artist creates his unique paintings that tell their "stories.? Thomas says, "I never consciously ponder elements of design or principals of design?I rely on my sketches to refine a value scheme as a starting point. They also help me visualize the completed painting and consider light, painting technique, subject or object importance, and other considerations. The viewer?s eye-path is a big influence on the composition at this point and all through the painting process.? Thomas?s style has been compared to Russell and Remington, and artist says he also has been influenced by Howard Pyle, Richard Schmid, Norman Rockwell, and others. Many of Thomas?s historical images have been used in books and as book covers, and his various paintings also have been featured in numerous magazines. The artist?s original works are in many private and corporate collections and also in the permanent collections of museums around the country. Thomas exhibits in several shows annually, the most recent being the 2006 C. M. Russell Art Auction where he sold eight original paintings. The artist also enjoys judging art shows and teaching children and adult painting classes. He is a talented writer and published a book containing over 100 color images of his work, along with stories written by him.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Strength and Honor by Kyle Polzin - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 24 x 20 Release Date: 3-2011 ???.Growing up along the Texas coast and also spending many happy days in the country with his grandparents gave Kyle Polzin much inspiration for his subject matter as a young artist. Working closely with his father to develop his talents, the artist started his training at an early age. Craftsmanship is a common thread in Polzin?s heritage; his father is a gifted artist and both grandfathers were skilled craftsmen. Along with an appreciation of art, Polzin?s family enjoyed the outdoors. The young artist has been influenced by the many childhood experiences of fishing the coastal waters and hunting and exploring the land with his father and grandfathers. Polzin was encouraged by his family to pursue painting as a career. Upon graduating high school in 1992, he began his formal fine arts training at Victoria College with an emphasis on oil painting. After graduating from college, the artist took advantage of many opportunities to enhance his talents. In 1996, he began instructional sessions with the master painter Dalhart Windberg, whose painting style has influenced him since childhood. This invaluable learning experience helped launch Polzin?s fine art career. With a palette of warm tones and serene settings, Polzin?s paintings are acknowledged as masterful compositions reflecting an Old World style. The artist?s talent for composition and his range of abilities allow him to paint a variety of subject matter ? from hunting and fishing and coastal scenes to wildlife and still lifes to western themes. Polzin?s works exhibit a combination of quiet strength and character that draws the viewer into his scenes. Whether painting beautiful flowers or memories of hunting or fishing trips, Polzin creates paintings that are striking images that leave a lasting impression. Polzin?s original paintings are represented by The Legacy Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming, and Scottsdale, Arizona, Port A Gallery in Port Aransas, Texas, and also by Southwest Gallery in Dallas, where, in 2007, he had his first, one-man show. All 27 of the original works exhibited sold on opening night. The artist?s beautiful works have been featured in Southwest Art and Art of the West magazines and on the cover of Texas Outdoors Journal. Texas Ducks Unlimited chose Polzin as their Sponsor Artist for 2006-07 for his painting, ?Hunters? Heritage.? Polzin?s works are also exhibited in corporate and private collections worldwide. The artist currently resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Leigh, and their young daughter, Kate.

Description: Fly Aways by Karen Kelly - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 24 x 30 Release Date: 4-2010 ???.My life experience and pleasures are translated through my work as an artist and photographer. I have been compelled by the innate power of the horse and its elegant beauty since childhood, striving to capture the raw energy and motion as well as the unique emotional connection between not only man and beast, but man and earth.I am attracted to expressive and experimental styles of working which not only generate some surprises, but also afford a sense of personal freedom.Sometimes a viewer will look twice at an image and not immediately be certain what the subject is exactly, but will definitely experience a positive feeling. I?ve had several people respond to pieces in this collection in a pure emotional fashion without even acknowledging the subject matter.Shooting photos digitally has proven to be invaluable in capturing rare moments of raw, textured forcefulness. Continuing with a vision, I work digitally to bring out the drama in a partial, painterly manner hoping to invoke feelings of an almost musical sense of connectedness.20 years of experience also include a strong background in graphic design, traditional art, artdirection, and four years of teaching at the Art Institute in Denver. Karen Kelly?s creative photography is presented in the contemporary style of Somerset Décor offerings. Each image is giclée printed with a solid black border on fine art canvas and stretched around 2 inch deep and solid wood bars. These museum quality matte canvas offerings are coated with a water-based semi-gloss coating to provide protection from ultra violet rays, dust, light moisture, and handling. They are designed to hang or stand without framing.
