GARY BENFIELD - DEVOTION

Lot 1396C: GARY BENFIELD - DEVOTION

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $400 - $600

Description: Artist: Gary Benfield. Title: Devotion. Medium: Giclee on Paper. Image Size: 22 x 14.25. Limited Edition Size: 200. __________Artist Biography: Gary Benfield?s keen eye for natural details joins with his vivid imagination in his work. His spontaneity is apparent in the dramatic pencil contours, casual brushstrokes and translucent colors, yet the forms are always classical and graceful and the compositions meticulous. The figures dissolve in the background and move across the canvas. Benfield paints rapidly and discards most of his work, keeping only the paintings that at the moment of conception capture the fluidity and grace of motion. Benfield has always been captivated by human form, and it dominates his work. He paints in images, translucent and dreamlike, always emotional and intimate. His work is a dance of the imagination, uniting precision and artistic skill to depict his 'lifelike fairytales'. He creates a unique juxtaposition of chaos and classical proportions, collision of color and line, realism and fantasy. For Benfield the world is a continuous sequence of contained causality. Objects and figures intertwine in his mind, they dance, they fuse, and one adopts the color and life of the other. We are drawn in to an intimate world of his imagery, where sensuality and delight in life's form are combined in flight of frolic and fantasy. His romanticism is fearless. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1965 Benfield studied art at Sturbridge College of art and continued later at the prestigious Wrexham College of Art. After leaving the academic world, he set up a studio near London and embarked upon one of his most productive periods. During this time, he developed a distinctive yet natural style, and after only several years, his work became well known and widely collected throughout Europe.

Hart Mountain Stallions by Bev Pettit

Lot 1409S: Hart Mountain Stallions by Bev Pettit

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $180 - $225

Description: Hart Mountain Stallions by Bev Pettit - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Dimensions: 16 x 24 Release Date: 6-2012 ???.Bev Pettit is an internationally published photographer who specializes in equine and western lifestyle photography. Having been around horses her entire life, either through good fortune or opportunities created, it was only natural that Pettit would choose the horse and the West as her main photographic subjects. Inspired by her love of horses, she strives to go beyond the inherent beauty of the animals to convey emotion in her work, at times using starkness to isolate details and to create a sense of intimacy with the viewer. After a decade of living and working in Asia and Europe, she now appreciates a quiet life with her family and horses on their ranch in Arizona. She insists on total control over the look and feel of each image from start to finish, and maintains a studio in her home where she creates and prints each image. Although her compositions are created in camera, the final image takes on many new lives in the digital darkroom before it is deemed ready for print. Pettit?s creative process for any given image can take up to several weeks. Each frame is first studied and then the thought process begins, before the vision for a final outcome is formed. Pettit places great emphasis on lighting and contrast in her images. At times her work reveals the grit and real-life hardness of a cowpuncher attempting to catch a wildly running horse in a muddy arena during a ranch competition; other times she captures the power and majesty of mustangs galloping freely through the open plains. (scroll down for more) Bev enjoys teaching online courses in fine art photography, judging international photo competitions, mentoring students on a private basis and conducting photo workshops throughout the Western US. Her work has received numerous awards and has been published extensively both in the US and internationally. She is currently represented in fine art galleries throughout the western states.

Description: High Kensington Street by Mark Lague - Edition Size: 95 - Giclee on Canvas - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 30 x 16 Release Date: 8-2007 ???.The fast-paced pulse of urban life is the recurring theme in many of Mark Laguë?s paintings. His canvases capture the overall spirit of the city in loose, dynamic brushstrokes. The artist?s travels take him to many of the world?s most sophisticated cities where he thrives on the hustle and bustle of life that teems daily in the streets. Laguë travels to many of his favorite locations such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris for inspiration. One of his favorite cosmopolitan cities is Rome, Italy. The artist says, ?Rome seems to fit my aesthetic well because there is such a mix between modern life and classical architecture.? This very talented painter considers the shapes that make up the city environment a beautiful, yet abstract, composition just waiting to be put on canvas. Light is a prominent factor in Laguë?s work. His scenes of day and night life in the city are formed by the manner in which light reflects and creates interesting shapes that offer the artist an opportunity to portray the scene in a vibrant, abstract design. Night time offers the artist a wide range of contrasts?dark against light and the mixture of architectural elements offer an endless palette of color and movement waiting for Laguë to bring to life. The artist draws the viewer into the scene with a story about everyday people and life in the city?familiar things combine to form a total ?cityscape? that is an exciting, mesmerizing image to behold. A native resident of Montreal, Canada, Laguë has made the journey from a childhood talent to entering art school at age 17 to a very successful career as an animation artist at a top studio. The artist?s desire to paint on his own full-time came in 2002. He considers his technical experience in color, handling of paint, and knowing the importance of values as the solid foundation for his success. Laguë primarily works in oil, but also favors watercolor. He has won many awards, including the 2002 Award of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America; Laguë also conducts art workshops. He is widely collected and represented by several galleries around the United States. Galleries consider his work spontaneous, vibrant, and attention getting. Collectors love the subject matter, texture, energy, and light in his scenes. Join Mark Laguë on his many journeys through the urban landscape.

Autumn's Veil by Robert Peters

Lot 1464S: Autumn's Veil by Robert Peters

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $180 - $225

Description: Autumn's Veil by Robert Peters - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 10 x 15 Release Date: 5-2012 ???.Robert Peters has spent his life living in and absorbing all that the West and its magnificent landscapes offer. The artist states, ?My work is grounded in my earliest personal impressions.? As a child, Peters grew up in Arizona, and he remembers fondly family trips that allowed him to hike, fish, and hunt in the wild and wondrous landscapes of southwestern Colorado. In these early years, the artist was just happy to enjoy the experience of being outdoors and eager to take in all that nature offers. ?I often seek out the story in a landscape,? says Peters. He notes that ?the repetition of shape in ridges? and ?jagged rocks in juxtaposition with soft snow? are just a couple aspects that interest him in mentally forming a composition that will draw and move the viewer?s eye to take in all of nature captured on his canvas. The artist also notes that ?a judicious use of detail? makes up the light and delicate aspects of his works. The excellent ability to orchestrate color and values gives Peters? art depth and emotion. ?That?s where their (my paintings) atmosphere comes from,? adds the artist. ?In the studio, I?m composing, rearranging, and reliving.? Trips to art museums and art classes in college laid the foundation for Peters? interest in what was to become his passion and career. In college, he began painting seriously; a professor, who was also a successful commercial illustrator, acknowledged and fostered Peters? talent and potential. With a desire for a career in commercial art, the artist was fortunate to have a mentor who educated him in the various components of the business. The young Peters soon began making a living working with well known advertising and publishing companies in New York without having to live there. Peters thrived in the business and his work was in demand. During this time, he joined the Society of Illustrators. During his successful commercial art career, Peters and his wife moved to Colorado and lived on a ranch where they bred and raised show horses. This rewarding life brought new purpose to his talent as an artist. He began painting the horses they loved and the western landscape. Peters felt compelled to paint full-time and quit commercial art, and his fine art career as a landscape painter was brought to life. Now settled back in Arizona with his family, Peters paints in a spacious studio next to his home. Majestic mountain vistas and his own horse pasture contribute to his many inspired moments at the easel. The artist also ventures into the natural world he so loved as a boy to view, contemplate, make notes, and sketch an image that he will take back to his studio where it will come alive on his canvas. Adds Peters, ?If something is in one of my paintings, I?ve been there and experienced it.?

Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Arizona was a natural environment that influenced Cox?s love for being surrounded by cattle and horses and the wide open spaces.

Cox has won numerous awards for his wonderful art. In 2008, Décor magazine featured Cox as one of the 14 Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists.

A quiet man of immense talent, his paintings came from his heart as much as from his brush. Breath-taking in his detailed and realistic approach, his images make time stand still?creating memories that offer the viewer a glimpse into a rich past that is relived through the artist?s paintings. Wygant had said, "I am interested in establishing a mood in my paintings and not a meaning. It is the viewer who brings the meaning to the work.? From the romantic cowboys to the rocky landscape and picturesque rivers to the pleasures of rural life, Wygant?s paintings brought the American West to life to be enjoyed and treasured for generations. After majoring in art at the University of Texas in Austin, he returned home to Houston to establish his career. Wygant?s first success was in commissions by some of the major oil companies in Texas. For several years, the artist worked quietly at home painting for his many clients. His images are in hundreds of homes throughout Texas and are treasured by every owner. Wygant?s growing reputation resulted in the University of Houston offering him a teaching position, where he inspired multitudes of students for 16 years. The artist also worked with the internationally-famous Houston Livestock Show in judging students? art and awarding scholarships?a way to give something back to the community. Bob Wygant?s magical use of acrylics earned him a reputation as a master of this medium. His paintings are vibrant, colorful scenes that allow the viewer to participate in the mood and emotion emanating from his subjects. He was always driven to relay his love of the Western landscape and the many memories of the quiet, rural life through his paint brush. Wygant passed away in 2008 after living for many years with his wife, Alla, in a small community north of Houston. He enjoyed a relaxed, rural life among the simple pleasures that he always loved to paint. Wygant, the man, and his outstanding talent will always be held in high esteem by the Western art world, which he so greatly influenced in his own, quiet way. Bob Wygant was such a revered figure with such a unique style in his genre that every painting he created is in a private or corporate collection and unavailable to the public.

Puppy Love by June Dudley

Estimated Price: $160 - $200

Description: Puppy Love by June Dudley - Edition Size: Open - Giclee on Canvas, Open Edition Signed Dimensions: 10 x 12.5 Release Date: 5-2009 ???.June Dudley grew up in the country near the small town of Iola, Texas, in an area known locally as the river bottom, a place where she has cherished memories of family and rural values?.where the Western attitude and ranching were lived everyday. Cowboy lore was not just stories for the artist, but everyday life for her family. Her father worked cattle, and it was not unusual for Dudley and her sister to ride horses all day working as "cowhands? on the range. A love of the land comes naturally, and today she owns the ranch that has been in her family for over 100 years and is recognized by the State of Texas. Dudley cherishes the times she worked with her father on the ranch, which also gave her an appreciation of the Western way of life. Dudley began painting at the early age of around eight. With no canvases to be had at the time, the budding artist used cardboard. Her earliest inspiration came from visits with an aunt who painted. The little artist was fascinated by the brushes and paints displayed in her aunt?s home and longed for her own. When her wish was granted, it was a dream-come-true for the little girl who knew she would one day become an artist. As a student of the late, great Western landscape painter, Bob Wygant, Dudley so admires his style and considers him to be the major influence in her love of painting the Western way of life. The artist continually photographs and sketches her subject matter and paints in acrylics. Weather permitting, Dudley delights in plein air painting; however, she creates most of her works in her home studio that affords a great north light. Painting the world she has always known, Dudley says, "I guess I paint what I am.? With a combination of impressionism and realism, the artist?s favorite subjects have become landscapes. Using a colorful palette that brings the viewer into her scenes, Dudley also favors figurative pieces that often include her grandchildren, other family members, and close friends. Garden scenes are prominent in her works having observed her mother grow beautiful flowers for as long as she can remember. Dudley?s works are represented by various galleries in Texas, among them The Midland Gallery in Midland, the Fredericksburg Art Gallery in Fredericksburg, and the L Bar Gallery in Kerrville. The artist has exhibited at shows across the nation in Houston, at the Peppertree Show in California, the Mountain Oyster Show, the Best of the West in Arizona, and at the Governor?s Invitational for Cheyenne Frontier Days. Dudley?s work has been featured in various publications such as Art of the West and Country Lifestyle magazines, and several newspapers. Dudley?s image, "Boss Lady,? was the cover art for the 2007 Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo School Art Program Awards Presentation booklet. Come to the country and enjoy the people and places that are dear to this rancher?s daughter ? Dudley captures her Texas family legacy with images that come from the bottom of this very talented artist?s heart.

Laguë travels to many of his favorite locations such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris for inspiration. One of his favorite cosmopolitan cities is Rome, Italy.

This very talented painter considers the shapes that make up the city environment a beautiful, yet abstract, composition just waiting to be put on canvas. Light is a prominent factor in Laguë?s work. His scenes of day and night life in the city are formed by the manner in which light reflects and creates interesting shapes that offer the artist an opportunity to portray the scene in a vibrant, abstract design. Night time offers the artist a wide range of contrasts?dark against light and the mixture of architectural elements offer an endless palette of color and movement waiting for Laguë to bring to life. The artist draws the viewer into the scene with a story about everyday people and life in the city?familiar things combine to form a total ?cityscape? that is an exciting, mesmerizing image to behold.

He is widely collected and represented by several galleries around the United States. Galleries consider his work spontaneous, vibrant, and attention getting.

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: YANAH KOROBOV - FALL BLOSSOMS - ORIGINAL ACRYLIC PAINTING ON CANVAS HAND SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Size: 22 X 22. COA: YES. Framed: YES. __________Artist Biography: Born in Ukraine in 1972, Yana studied at the local High School of the Arts. Yana went on to graduate as a teacher of art from the State Art College in Kharkiv, Ukraine. In 2003 she immigrated to Israel.Yana Korobov?s style is full of vibrant colors and expresses emotions typically associated with bold life. When violent colors are next to each other they trick the eye into a sensation of movement. Yana uses a thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes and real-life subject matter to emphasize geometric forms, to distort form for expressive effect, and to use unnatural or arbitrary color.Yana paints with a sense of urgency, using the paint straight from the tube in thick, graphic brush strokes. Her choice of color varies with her moods and occasionally she deliberately restricts her palette to only a few colors. Perhaps this very technique is what draws one into the painting: the fulfillment of seeing all angles of the spectrum of life and in turn reaching a deeper understanding of how all living things are tied together. ?Painting, to me, is a unique experience. Each work is a surprise and has its own personal and intuitive meaning. My paintings evolve organically from life's everyday glances. Each layer determines and guides the next.?The favorite technique of the artist is referred to as ?impasto? ? a way of applying paint, specifically a thick, textured application of paint where the marks made by the brush or painting knife stay visible. The impasto style is evident in the work of Vincent van Gogh, who clearly is a defining influence of this young and upcoming Ukrainian artist.

From the time Bob was a young child he had a strong passion for photography. As his skills progressed, he was able to create surrealism in any subject matter he photographed. Being so closely associated with the West Texas oilfield scene, it was only natural that Bob would soon turn his creative eye to what was nearest and most familiar to him and turn it into an art form. Using high dynamic range photography and photographic manipulation Bob is able to capture the essence and beauty of the rigs and any associated equipment using explosive color and dynamic skies that are unlike anywhere else in the country.

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $360 - $540

Description: Artist: Gary Benfield. Title: Flora. Medium: Giclee on Paper. Image Size: 20 x 12. Limited Edition Size: 195. __________Artist Biography: Gary Benfield?s keen eye for natural details joins with his vivid imagination in his work. His spontaneity is apparent in the dramatic pencil contours, casual brushstrokes and translucent colors, yet the forms are always classical and graceful and the compositions meticulous. The figures dissolve in the background and move across the canvas. Benfield paints rapidly and discards most of his work, keeping only the paintings that at the moment of conception capture the fluidity and grace of motion. Benfield has always been captivated by human form, and it dominates his work. He paints in images, translucent and dreamlike, always emotional and intimate. His work is a dance of the imagination, uniting precision and artistic skill to depict his 'lifelike fairytales'. He creates a unique juxtaposition of chaos and classical proportions, collision of color and line, realism and fantasy. For Benfield the world is a continuous sequence of contained causality. Objects and figures intertwine in his mind, they dance, they fuse, and one adopts the color and life of the other. We are drawn in to an intimate world of his imagery, where sensuality and delight in life's form are combined in flight of frolic and fantasy. His romanticism is fearless. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1965 Benfield studied art at Sturbridge College of art and continued later at the prestigious Wrexham College of Art. After leaving the academic world, he set up a studio near London and embarked upon one of his most productive periods. During this time, he developed a distinctive yet natural style, and after only several years, his work became well known and widely collected throughout Europe.

The artist states, ?My work is grounded in my earliest personal impressions.? As a child, Peters grew up in Arizona, and he remembers fondly family trips that allowed him to hike, fish, and hunt in the wild and wondrous landscapes of southwestern Colorado. In these early years, the artist was just happy to enjoy the experience of being outdoors and eager to take in all that nature offers. ?I often seek out the story in a landscape,? says Peters. He notes that ?the repetition of shape in ridges? and ?jagged rocks in juxtaposition with soft snow? are just a couple aspects that interest him in mentally forming a composition that will draw and move the viewer?s eye to take in all of nature captured on his canvas. The artist also notes that ?a judicious use of detail? makes up the light and delicate aspects of his works. The excellent ability to orchestrate color and values gives Peters? art depth and emotion. ?That?s where their (my paintings) atmosphere comes from,? adds the artist. ?In the studio, I?m composing, rearranging, and reliving.? Trips to art museums and art classes in college laid the foundation for Peters? interest in what was to become his passion and career. In college, he began painting seriously; a professor, who was also a successful commercial illustrator, acknowledged and fostered Peters? talent and potential. With a desire for a career in commercial art, the artist was fortunate to have a mentor who educated him in the various components of the business. The young Peters soon began making a living working with well known advertising and publishing companies in New York without having to live there. Peters thrived in the business and his work was in demand. During this time, he joined the Society of Illustrators. During his successful commercial art career, Peters and his wife moved to Colorado and lived on a ranch where they bred and raised show horses. This rewarding life brought new purpose to his talent as an artist. He began painting the horses they loved and the western landscape. Peters felt compelled to paint full-time and quit commercial art, and his fine art career as a landscape painter was brought to life. Now settled back in Arizona with his family, Peters paints in a spacious studio next to his home. Majestic mountain vistas and his own horse pasture contribute to his many inspired moments at the easel. The artist also ventures into the natural world he so loved as a boy to view, contemplate, make notes, and sketch an image that he will take back to his studio where it will come alive on his canvas. Adds Peters, ?If something is in one of my paintings, I?ve been there and experienced it.?

A quiet man of immense talent, his paintings came from his heart as much as from his brush. Breath-taking in his detailed and realistic approach, his images make time stand still?creating memories that offer the viewer a glimpse into a rich past that is relived through the artist?s paintings. Wygant had said, "I am interested in establishing a mood in my paintings and not a meaning. It is the viewer who brings the meaning to the work.? From the romantic cowboys to the rocky landscape and picturesque rivers to the pleasures of rural life, Wygant?s paintings brought the American West to life to be enjoyed and treasured for generations. After majoring in art at the University of Texas in Austin, he returned home to Houston to establish his career. Wygant?s first success was in commissions by some of the major oil companies in Texas. For several years, the artist worked quietly at home painting for his many clients. His images are in hundreds of homes throughout Texas and are treasured by every owner. Wygant?s growing reputation resulted in the University of Houston offering him a teaching position, where he inspired multitudes of students for 16 years. The artist also worked with the internationally-famous Houston Livestock Show in judging students? art and awarding scholarships?a way to give something back to the community. Bob Wygant?s magical use of acrylics earned him a reputation as a master of this medium. His paintings are vibrant, colorful scenes that allow the viewer to participate in the mood and emotion emanating from his subjects. He was always driven to relay his love of the Western landscape and the many memories of the quiet, rural life through his paint brush. Wygant passed away in 2008 after living for many years with his wife, Alla, in a small community north of Houston. He enjoyed a relaxed, rural life among the simple pleasures that he always loved to paint. Wygant, the man, and his outstanding talent will always be held in high esteem by the Western art world, which he so greatly influenced in his own, quiet way. Bob Wygant was such a revered figure with such a unique style in his genre that every painting he created is in a private or corporate collection and unavailable to the public.

His canvases capture the overall spirit of the city in loose, dynamic brushstrokes. The artist?s travels take him to many of the world?s most sophisticated cities where he thrives on the hustle and bustle of life that teems daily in the streets. Laguë travels to many of his favorite locations such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, and Paris for inspiration. One of his favorite cosmopolitan cities is Rome, Italy. The artist says, ?Rome seems to fit my aesthetic well because there is such a mix between modern life and classical architecture.? This very talented painter considers the shapes that make up the city environment a beautiful, yet abstract, composition just waiting to be put on canvas. Light is a prominent factor in Laguë?s work. His scenes of day and night life in the city are formed by the manner in which light reflects and creates interesting shapes that offer the artist an opportunity to portray the scene in a vibrant, abstract design. Night time offers the artist a wide range of contrasts?dark against light and the mixture of architectural elements offer an endless palette of color and movement waiting for Laguë to bring to life. The artist draws the viewer into the scene with a story about everyday people and life in the city?familiar things combine to form a total ?cityscape? that is an exciting, mesmerizing image to behold. A native resident of Montreal, Canada, Laguë has made the journey from a childhood talent to entering art school at age 17 to a very successful career as an animation artist at a top studio. The artist?s desire to paint on his own full-time came in 2002. He considers his technical experience in color, handling of paint, and knowing the importance of values as the solid foundation for his success. Laguë primarily works in oil, but also favors watercolor. He has won many awards, including the 2002 Award of Excellence from the Oil Painters of America; Laguë also conducts art workshops. He is widely collected and represented by several galleries around the United States. Galleries consider his work spontaneous, vibrant, and attention getting. Collectors love the subject matter, texture, energy, and light in his scenes. Join Mark Laguë on his many journeys through the urban landscape.

Description: Where Change Comes Slowly by Tim Cox - Edition Size: 15 - Giclee on Canvas - Artist Proof Dimensions: 24 x 36 Release Date: 1-2014 ???.As a young child, Tim Cox vowed he ?was going to be a cowboy artist? when he grew up, and he has lived that dream for 30 years. Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Arizona was a natural environment that influenced Cox?s love for being surrounded by cattle and horses and the wide open spaces. While most of the artist?s time is spent painting, he rides and works on various ranches throughout the West and also raises cattle and trains horses he owns. Cox?s everyday experience with the cowboy life is reflected in the outstanding works that he creates. He combines color, value, perspective, accuracy, and design in his scenes of the daily life of the cowboy. As a perfectionist, his attention to detail and hands-on knowledge of the cattle and horses he so loves to paint have earned the artist legends of admirers and collectors who appreciate his accurate portrayals of western life. Viewers are brought up-close and personal with the animals and people who inhabit Cox?s world. The West comes alive in his paintings. Considered one of the great western artists of our time, Cox is one of today?s most successful painters in his genre. Through the years, many accolades have been bestowed on this very talented artist, and this year Cox was asked to join the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America; he participated in the 2008 exhibition. Cox has won numerous awards for his wonderful art. In 2008, Décor magazine featured Cox as one of the 14 Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists. In 2007, his painting, ?Good Horses and Wide Open Spaces,? won the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award; at this same exhibit in 2004, ?Along Eagle Creek? won the award. In 2003, the artist was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum exhibit. Cox?s painting, ?On to Better Pastures,? won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award. In 2001, the artist was awarded the Will Rogers Western Artist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists and Friends of Western Art. Cox is also a three-time winner of the Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show at The Mountain Oyster Club. Tim, a fourth generation Arizonan, and his wife, Suzie, enjoy the life that the artist paints on their ranch in New Mexico that they call home. Surrounded by their cattle and horses, they truly live the western life that most of us can only dream about.

As the youngest child in a family of 10 children, Bob was also personally acquainted with the oilfield life watching his father and older brothers work hard to earn a living. From the time Bob was a young child he had a strong passion for photography. As his skills progressed, he was able to create surrealism in any subject matter he photographed. Being so closely associated with the West Texas oilfield scene, it was only natural that Bob would soon turn his creative eye to what was nearest and most familiar to him and turn it into an art form. Using high dynamic range photography and photographic manipulation Bob is able to capture the essence and beauty of the rigs and any associated equipment using explosive color and dynamic skies that are unlike anywhere else in the country.

Says Artist June Carey, Who Climbed Fences To Photograph And Research Pacheco Pass. ?you Can Imagine How Happy I Was When This Incredible Area Became A State Park And I Could Visit Legally. Although The Freeway Now Cuts Into Part Of The Scene In This Painting, It Takes Nothing Away From The Rich History Of The Rancherias.? Named For 19th Century Ranch Owner Don Francisco Perez Pacheco, The Fertile Pacheco Pass Was The Home Of The Ausaymus Indians For Centuries. Living Peacefully Off The Land, These Indians Used A Natural Artesian Spring They Named ?bright Bubbling? As A Year-round Source Of Fresh Water. This Spring And Its Location Would Prove To Be Important In The Years To Come. A Path Was Carved Into The Area By Indians Traveling In From The Coast To Trade. After The Establishment Of The California Missions, The Trail?s Main Travelers Were Mission Padres Attempting To Convert The Central Californian Indians. With The Discovery Of Gold In 1848, This Same Area Was Part Of The Main Travel Route From Coastal California To The Mines. As The Population Increased, The Area?s Rich Soil Was Cultivated To Produce Fruit Trees And Vineyards.??about The Artist - June Carey "the Little Farmhouse In Pennsylvania Where I Grew Up Was Always Alive With Singing, Laughter And A Love Of The Arts," Says Artist June Carey.

Aida?s Rich Theme Always Seemed To Be Playing In The Background As I Went In Search Of A Reality I Could Call My Own, Escaping Into The Quiet Roar Of The Singing Crickets And Song Of The Meadowlark. I Could Lose Myself In The Turquoise Twilight Magic Of A Summer Evening Or Breath Of Sweet Fields Of Winter Wheat Beneath The Rising Sliver Of A Moon. I Found My True Love And Years Later Found Myself Longing For The Beautiful Fields Of My Childhood, Where Everything Was The Way It Should Be. My Passion Springs Forth Through The Beauty Of The Fertile Earth, Which Has Always Been My Real Teacher. "i Began Painting Full Time In 1982, Doing My Time As A Starving Artist While Raising My Young Son. I Was Happy To Trade This Tragic Cliché For The Happy Success Of Sell-out Gallery Shows And Award Banquets. In 1991, I Married Maritime Artist David Thimgan, And We Thrived Together. On One Late Summer Afternoon Escape, Traveling To The Mendocino Coast, I Discovered The California Wine Country. I Was So Happy To Have Found A Place In California That Reminded Me Of My Long Lost Fields Of Pennsylvania. I Painted My First Vineyard Scene In 1996 And, As Time Passed, This Interest Has Taken Me To The Countryside Of Tuscany, Where I Feel I Probably Lived In A Former Lifetime. My Italian Opera Theme Song Has Never Left My Heart, And Somehow Life Seems To Have Come Full Circle, To Connect, Again, The Passions Of My Life."

GARY BENFIELD - MIDNIGHT STAR

Lot 1861C: GARY BENFIELD - MIDNIGHT STAR

by Artistic Holdings Company

April 19, 2014

Las Vegas, NV, USA

Estimated Price: $460 - $690

Description: Artist: Gary Benfield. Title: Midnight Star. Medium: Giclee on Paper. Image Size: 16.25 x 18. Limited Edition Size: 350. __________Artist Biography: Gary Benfield?s keen eye for natural details joins with his vivid imagination in his work. His spontaneity is apparent in the dramatic pencil contours, casual brushstrokes and translucent colors, yet the forms are always classical and graceful and the compositions meticulous. The figures dissolve in the background and move across the canvas. Benfield paints rapidly and discards most of his work, keeping only the paintings that at the moment of conception capture the fluidity and grace of motion. Benfield has always been captivated by human form, and it dominates his work. He paints in images, translucent and dreamlike, always emotional and intimate. His work is a dance of the imagination, uniting precision and artistic skill to depict his 'lifelike fairytales'. He creates a unique juxtaposition of chaos and classical proportions, collision of color and line, realism and fantasy. For Benfield the world is a continuous sequence of contained causality. Objects and figures intertwine in his mind, they dance, they fuse, and one adopts the color and life of the other. We are drawn in to an intimate world of his imagery, where sensuality and delight in life's form are combined in flight of frolic and fantasy. His romanticism is fearless. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1965 Benfield studied art at Sturbridge College of art and continued later at the prestigious Wrexham College of Art. After leaving the academic world, he set up a studio near London and embarked upon one of his most productive periods. During this time, he developed a distinctive yet natural style, and after only several years, his work became well known and widely collected throughout Europe.

Description: October Mist by Tim Cox - Edition Size: 1500 - Print - Signed & Numbered Dimensions: 20 x 30 Release Date: 10-2008 ???.As a young child, Tim Cox vowed he ?was going to be a cowboy artist? when he grew up, and he has lived that dream for 30 years. Growing up in a small farming and ranching community in Arizona was a natural environment that influenced Cox?s love for being surrounded by cattle and horses and the wide open spaces. While most of the artist?s time is spent painting, he rides and works on various ranches throughout the West and also raises cattle and trains horses he owns. Cox?s everyday experience with the cowboy life is reflected in the outstanding works that he creates. He combines color, value, perspective, accuracy, and design in his scenes of the daily life of the cowboy. As a perfectionist, his attention to detail and hands-on knowledge of the cattle and horses he so loves to paint have earned the artist legends of admirers and collectors who appreciate his accurate portrayals of western life. Viewers are brought up-close and personal with the animals and people who inhabit Cox?s world. The West comes alive in his paintings. Considered one of the great western artists of our time, Cox is one of today?s most successful painters in his genre. Through the years, many accolades have been bestowed on this very talented artist, and this year Cox was asked to join the prestigious Cowboy Artists of America; he participated in the 2008 exhibition. Cox has won numerous awards for his wonderful art. In 2008, Décor magazine featured Cox as one of the 14 Most Enduring and Successful Poster Artists. In 2007, his painting, ?Good Horses and Wide Open Spaces,? won the Express Ranches Great American Cowboy Award; at this same exhibit in 2004, ?Along Eagle Creek? won the award. In 2003, the artist was honored with one of the most prestigious awards in western art at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum exhibit. Cox?s painting, ?On to Better Pastures,? won the coveted Prix de West Purchase Award. In 2001, the artist was awarded the Will Rogers Western Artist of the Year by the Academy of Western Artists and Friends of Western Art. Cox is also a three-time winner of the Olaf Wieghorst Best of Show at The Mountain Oyster Club. Tim, a fourth generation Arizonan, and his wife, Suzie, enjoy the life that the artist paints on their ranch in New Mexico that they call home. Surrounded by their cattle and horses, they truly live the western life that most of us can only dream about.
