"as I Was Researching American Horse, I Found, Once Again, How Easy It Is For Me To Embrace The Nobility, Love Of Land And The Rights Of People, Peace And Loyalty Of The Native American Spirit. I See The Same Qualities In Those Who Have Chosen To Serve Today And Feel That They, Too, Are Our Leaders For Tomorrow."??about The Artist - Judy Larson 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. Judy Received A Bachelor Of Science Degree In Commercial Art From Pacific Union College In Northern California, 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 As A Recurring Subject. Her Unique Approach To Her Work Is Through The Use Of Scratch Board--a Technique That Can Render Magnificent Detail But One Requiring Infinite Patience. Scratch Board, An Old, But Little Used Medium, Consists Of A Smooth, Thin Surface Of Hardened China Clay Applied To A Board. The Subject Is Then Painted Solidly With Black India Ink To Create A Silhouette. Now The Exacting Work Begins, Engraving The Image Into The Surface Of The Artwork. While Many Artists Use Steel Nibs Or Engraving Tools, Judy Prefers To Work With X-acto Blades, Changing Them Ever Few Minutes To Produce As Fine A Line As Possible. Once The Subject Has Been Totally Scratched, It Is A Finished Black And White Illustration, Ready For The Artist To Add Color. The Methods Of Adding Color Are Diverse. Judy Prefers A Combination Of Airbrush, Gouache Or Acrylics For Finishing, With Frequent Rescratching For Detail. Scratch Board Is A Demanding Medium, One That Judy Has Used Masterfully In Developing Her Unique Approach To Wildlife Art.

Lot 1366S: Golden Dawn by Bill Anton

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014, 5:00 AM PST

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $190 - $240

Description: Golden Dawn by Bill Anton - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 11 x 14 Release Date: 6-2010 ???.Bill Anton was born in Chicago in 1957 and later moved to Prescott, Arizona. He graduated from Northern Arizona University. Later, after committing to painting full-time, he studied under Michael Lynch and Ned Jacob, who encouraged him to paint from life. ?While the nature of my work necessitates much studio time, more and more of my painting is done outside.? Anton?s work has been published in Southwest Art, Architectural Digest, Art of the West, Equine Images, Western Horseman and Art-Talk. Corporate collections that include his work are Sears, Dupont, State Farm Insurance, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, and Trust Company of the West. His award winning work has been displayed at the Prix de West at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, Masters of the American West at The Autry Museum, The National Center for American Western Art, the Old West Museum, and The National Museum of Wildlife Art. In addition, his work is in the permanent collection of the prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?I do not see myself as a biographer of the cowboy. I know some artists feel they are recording history on the ranches as life there is today, but the focus of my work has always been mood and passion. If I?m recording anything, I?m recording how I feel about the west. I want the viewer to feel the drama of atmosphere and the mystery of a western night. I want the volume and portent of a cloud to be evident in the calligraphy of a brushstroke. The pack of muscle below a horse?s shoulder should be energized by a gestural application of paint. ?You see, I love to paint. And I love the American west. I was born in Chicago, but the Sierra Nevada, Sangre de Cristo, Sawatch and a hundred other ranges of our rocky mountains were the only ?Big Shoulders? I was ever interested in. Walking thunderstorms, sunstruck cedars, rimrock and artfully abstract water patterns charge the landscape with impossible beauty. ?Amidst this nobility is its caretaker: the rancher. With the natural ease of generations bred to the saddle, he is a powerful image further ennobled by a fine horse. An artist under the spell of the west has the privilege of marshalling the virtues of landscape, figure andequine painting into one supremely paintable subject: the American cowboy.? - Bill Anton
