            R G Finney (WY,20C) oil painting

            Est: $500 - $625

            ARTIST: R G Finney (Wyoming, late 20 century) NAME: Ocelot Mother with Cub Sitting in Grass YEAR: 1994 MEDIUM: oil on canvas CONDITION: Unstretched (In-House stretching available). Very good. No visible inpaint under UV light. SIGHT SIZE: 17 x 17 inches / 43 x 43 cm MAT SIZE: 23 x 24 inches / 58 x 60 cm SIGNATURE: lower right NOTE: This artwork was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Rain Forest Respite. Perfectly camouflaged to blend into the sun-and-shadow world of their surroundings, a mother Ocelot and her kitten listen intently to the myriad sounds emanating from the rain forest. If they are certain no danger is approaching, or that nothing worth eating is coming their way, mother and kitten will continue their respite until darkness falls and the time to hunt is at hand. Ocelots, like all cats, are highly-effective predators. Although most of their prey -- such as mice, rats and guinea pigs -- are on the small side, Ocelots will and do pursue larger quarry. It's not unusual for these industrious felines to dine on an occasional monkey or young deer. At home in forest or brushland, Ocelots adapt well to different types of environments. Their territory extends from Central America to the south-western United States. In cooler climes, Ocelots most often bear their young in the spring. In tropical areas, births occur during any season. Caves or tree hollows serve as dens for these elusive animals. Once quite common throughout their range, Ocelots are now considered an endangered species. Over the years, these rare and beautiful animals have been hunted relentlessly for their magnificent coats. And the slashing and burning of Central America's rain forests has taken its toll as well. PROVENANCE: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation CATEGORY: antique vintage painting AD: ART CONSIGNMENTS WANTED. CONTACT US SKU#: 117593 US Shipping $60 + insurance. BIOGRAPHY: Wildlife artist, R.G. Finney began by painting cowboys in the 1980s.His art career was preceded by a youth spent in Canada until the age of 16 and then he moved with his family to Florida. Finney worked as an electrician for awhile after graduating from high school, before he enlisted in the Army and served as a Green Beret in Vietnam. Finney quit the military after 13 years to return to school. He attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.Finney and his wife moved to Embankment, Wyoming, her hometown and there he began to paint full time. After Finney's initial gallery success, he worked to build his own client base. Soon he could cut back to just the spring shows and devoted the rest of the year to painting.Today, Finney is under contract with Fulson Graphics to produce six major pieces a year for four years. Finney paints, "for my own joy and don't really try to please anybody. I've found that to be a great formula."

            Est: $425 - $550

            ARTIST: R G Finney (Wyoming, late 20th century) NAME: Cheetah YEAR: 1995 MEDIUM: oil on board CONDITION: Excellent. No visible inpaint under UV light. SIGHT SIZE: 12 x 12 inches / 30 x 30 cm FRAME SIZE: unframed (In-House framing available) SIGNATURE: lower right NOTE: This painting was originally published on the Republic of the Marshall Islands 55c Cheetah mint stamp issued March 8, 1997. The cheetah is best known for being the fastest of all the land mammals capable of attaining speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour! However, it displays other characteristics that make it unique not only among big cats, but in the entire cat family. Most notable is the cheetah's inability to retract its claws, as it lacks the protective sheaths possessed by all other cats. It is also considered to possess certain canine traits such as a greyhound-like build, an inability to climb trees and the ease with which it can be tamed and trained. The cheetah once inhabited the savannas and semi-deserts of Africa and Asia from Morocco to India. It is believed that this big cat is probably Asian in origin since no fossil remains have been found in Africa. Sadly, it is now extinct in much of its former range.

            R G Finney (WY,20C) oil painting

            Est: $500 - $650

            ARTIST: R G Finney (Wyoming, late 20 century) NAME: Ocelot Mother with Cub Sitting in Grass YEAR: 1994 MEDIUM: oil on canvas CONDITION: Unstretched (In-House stretching available). Very good. No visible inpaint under UV light. SIGHT SIZE: 17 x 17 inches / 43 x 43 cm MAT SIZE: 23 x 24 inches / 58 x 60 cm SIGNATURE: lower right NOTE: This artwork was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Rain Forest Respite. Perfectly camouflaged to blend into the sun-and-shadow world of their surroundings, a mother Ocelot and her kitten listen intently to the myriad sounds emanating from the rain forest. If they are certain no danger is approaching, or that nothing worth eating is coming their way, mother and kitten will continue their respite until darkness falls and the time to hunt is at hand. Ocelots, like all cats, are highly-effective predators. Although most of their prey -- such as mice, rats and guinea pigs -- are on the small side, Ocelots will and do pursue larger quarry. It's not unusual for these industrious felines to dine on an occasional monkey or young deer. At home in forest or brushland, Ocelots adapt well to different types of environments. Their territory extends from Central America to the south-western United States. In cooler climes, Ocelots most often bear their young in the spring. In tropical areas, births occur during any season. Caves or tree hollows serve as dens for these elusive animals. Once quite common throughout their range, Ocelots are now considered an endangered species. Over the years, these rare and beautiful animals have been hunted relentlessly for their magnificent coats. And the slashing and burning of Central America's rain forests has taken its toll as well. PROVENANCE: Collection of James A.

The cheetah is best known for being the fastest of all the land mammals capable of attaining speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour! However, it displays other characteristics that make it unique not only among big cats, but in the entire cat family. Most notable is the cheetah's inability to retract its claws, as it lacks the protective sheaths possessed by all other cats. It is also considered to possess certain canine traits such as a greyhound-like build, an inability to climb trees and the ease with which it can be tamed and trained. The cheetah once inhabited the savannas and semi-deserts of Africa and Asia from Morocco to India. It is believed that this big cat is probably Asian in origin since no fossil remains have been found in Africa. Sadly, it is now extinct in much of its former range.

            Est: $625 - $800

            ARTIST: R G Finney (Wyoming, late 20th century) NAME: Snow Leopard and Her Cubs YEAR: 1993 MEDIUM: acrylic on board CONDITION: Excellent. No visible inpaint under UV light. SIGHT SIZE: 18 x 18 inches / 45 x 45 cm FRAME SIZE: unframed SIGNATURE: lower right NOTE: This painting is the original which appeared on the Fleetwood Collector's Plate. Snow Leopards live high in the rugged, unforgiving mountains of Central Asia. These endangered cats have thick, luxuriant coats that keep them warm during the coldest weather, huge paws which allow for relatively easy travel over snow and long tails that provide the necessary balance to negotiate the rocky slopes, crevices and snow-covered surfaces of their habitat. Rarest of all big cats, Snow Leopards are shy, elusive animals and as a result little was known of their habits until recently. These snow cats, as they are sometimes called, live a solitary life, mixing with their own only to mate. Perhaps because of the harsh conditions of their environment, Snow Leopards are the only cats which have a specific breeding season. Mating occurs in late winter. After a gestation period of roughly 100 days, two to four cubs are born just as spring arrives and the weather warms. Nocturnal hunters, Snow Leopards prey on wild goats, deer, boars and a variety of small mammals. Unfortunately, they also hunt domestic livestock, which brings them in direct conflict with man. Each year several of these beautiful cats are killed by shepherds protecting their herds, adding to the leopards' decline. In addition, some furriers actively seek the beautiful smoke-gray pelts of these regal animals, sometimes using the best parts of 12 different hides to make one coat. Such a coat brings nearly $60,000 on the black market. PROVENANCE: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation.

The cheetah is best known for being the fastest of all the land mammals capable of attaining speeds in excess of 70 miles per hour! However, it displays other characteristics that make it unique not only among big cats, but in the entire cat family. Most notable is the cheetah's inability to retract its claws, as it lacks the protective sheaths possessed by all other cats. It is also considered to possess certain canine traits such as a greyhound-like build, an inability to climb trees and the ease with which it can be tamed and trained. The cheetah once inhabited the savannas and semi-deserts of Africa and Asia from Morocco to India. It is believed that this big cat is probably Asian in origin since no fossil remains have been found in Africa. Sadly, it is now extinct in much of its former range.

            ARTIST: R G Finney (Wyoming, late 20th century) NAME: Snow Leopard and Her Cubs YEAR: 1993 MEDIUM: acrylic on board CONDITION: Excellent. No visible inpaint under UV light. SIGHT SIZE: 18 x 18 inches / 45 x 45 cm FRAME SIZE: unframed SIGNATURE: lower right NOTE: This painting is the original which appeared on the Fleetwood Collector's Plate. Snow Leopards live high in the rugged, unforgiving mountains of Central Asia. These endangered cats have thick, luxuriant coats that keep them warm during the coldest weather, huge paws which allow for relatively easy travel over snow and long tails that provide the necessary balance to negotiate the rocky slopes, crevices and snow-covered surfaces of their habitat. Rarest of all big cats, Snow Leopards are shy, elusive animals and as a result little was known of their habits until recently. These snow cats, as they are sometimes called, live a solitary life, mixing with their own only to mate. Perhaps because of the harsh conditions of their environment, Snow Leopards are the only cats which have a specific breeding season. Mating occurs in late winter. After a gestation period of roughly 100 days, two to four cubs are born just as spring arrives and the weather warms. Nocturnal hunters, Snow Leopards prey on wild goats, deer, boars and a variety of small mammals. Unfortunately, they also hunt domestic livestock, which brings them in direct conflict with man. Each year several of these beautiful cats are killed by shepherds protecting their herds, adding to the leopards' decline. In addition, some furriers actively seek the beautiful smoke-gray pelts of these regal animals, sometimes using the best parts of 12 different hides to make one coat. Such a coat brings nearly $60,000 on the black market. PROVENANCE: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation.

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting is the original painting which was published on the Republic of the Marshall Islands 55c Bengal Tiger mint stamp issued March 8, 1997. The tiger is the largest member of the cat family, with a mature male standing over three feet tall at the shoulder and weighing up to 500 pounds. Despite its size, formidable strength and ferocity, the tiger is a wary creature that lives a solitary existence in jungles or forests. This caution is justified since six of the eight tiger subspecies are today either extinct or endangered. Once extending from Turkey to China, the tiger's range is now reduced to parts of India, Manchuria and Southeast Asia. Of all big cats, the tiger seems to have taken the strongest hold on mans imagination. This is demonstrated in such disparate expressions as the famous poem by William Blake that wonders at the creature's "fearful symmetry," and in the language of mountain people in northeastern China for whom the terms for tiger and God are synonymous.

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting is the original painting which was published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Forest Sanctuary. Although her gaze is fixed on something in the distance, the vigilant mother Lynx is ever cognizant of her kits' movements. The young one at her feet nestles up to its parent for warmth, unaware that its frisky sibling is about to pounce from a nearby tree limb. However, the matriarch of this handsome Lynx family takes such antics in stride for she knows that in a short time those playful attacks will become vital to her offsprings' survival. Living in the wilds requires a great deal of skill, including a talent for capturing prey. In order to trap the mainstay of the Lynx's diet, snowshoe hare, the hunter must have a sharp eye and be fast on its feet. Equipped with large hind paws and a coat that turns white, concealing it in snow, this species of hare presents its predator with quite a challenge. Nevertheless, nature has also provided the Lynx with huge feet that seem to effortlessly pad through the deep snows of its natural habitat. Overall Size: 18 x 18 in. Unframed. (B14601)

Finney began by painting cowboys in the 1980s.His art career was preceded by a youth spent in Canada until the age of 16 and then he moved with his family to Florida. Finney worked as an electrician for awhile after graduating from high school, before he enlisted in the Army and served as a Green Beret in Vietnam. Finney quit the military after 13 years to return to school. He attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.Finney and his wife moved to Embankment, Wyoming, her hometown and there he began to paint full time. After Finney's initial gallery success, he worked to build his own client base. Soon he could cut back to just the spring shows and devoted the rest of the year to painting.Today, Finney is under contract with Fulson Graphics to produce six major pieces a year for four years. Finney paints, "for my own joy and don't really try to please anybody. I've found that to be a great formula."

            R.G. Finney (Wyoming, B. 1941) "Ocelot Mother with Cub Sitting in Grass" Signed lower right. Original Oil painting on Masonite. Provenance: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This artwork was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Rain Forest Respite. Perfectly camouflaged to blend into the sun-and-shadow world of their surroundings, a mother Ocelot and her kitten listen intently to the myriad sounds emanating from the rain forest. If they are certain no danger is approaching, or that nothing worth eating is coming their way, mother and kitten will continue their respite until darkness falls and the time to hunt is at hand. Ocelots, like all cats, are highly-effective predators. Although most of their prey -- such as mice, rats and guinea pigs -- are on the small side, Ocelots will and do pursue larger quarry. It's not unusual for these industrious felines to dine on an occasional monkey or young deer. At home in forest or brushland, Ocelots adapt well to different types of environments. Their territory extends from Central America to the south-western United States. In cooler climes, Ocelots most often bear their young in the spring. In tropical areas, births occur during any season. Caves or tree hollows serve as dens for these elusive animals. Once quite common throughout their range, Ocelots are now considered an endangered species. Over the years, these rare and beautiful animals have been hunted relentlessly for their magnificent coats. And the slashing and burning of Central America's rain forests has taken its toll as well. Overall Size: 12 x 12 in. Unframed. (B14850)

            R.G. Finney (Wyoming, B. 1941) "Bengal Tiger" Signed lower right. Original Oil painting on Masonite. Provenance: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was originally published on the Republic of the Marshall Islands 55c Bengal Tiger mint stamp issued March 8, 1997. The tiger is the largest member of the cat family, with a mature male standing over three feet tall at the shoulder and weighing up to 500 pounds. Despite its size, formidable strength and ferocity, the tiger is a wary creature that lives a solitary existence in jungles or forests. This caution is justified since six of the eight tiger subspecies are today either extinct or endangered. Once extending from Turkey to China, the tiger's range is now reduced to parts of India, Manchuria and Southeast Asia. Of all big cats, the tiger seems to have taken the strongest hold on mans imagination. This is demonstrated in such disparate expressions as the famous poem by William Blake that wonders at the creature's "fearful symmetry," and in the language of mountain people in northeastern China for whom the terms for tiger and God are synonymous. Overall Size: 12 x 12 in. Unframed. (B15292)

This painting was originally published on the Republic of the Marshall Islands 55c Jaguar mint stamp issued March 8, 1997. The largest and fiercest cat in the Americas, the jaguar is a marvelously equipped and fearless predator. Possessing a large head and heavy body, it is somewhat similar to the leopard, but the jaguar's rosettes are concentrated along its back and have one or more distinct spots in their centers. This powerful cat is remarkably swift and agile, and is an excellent climber and swimmer. The jaguar is a solitary night hunter that preys on a wide variety of animals, both terrestrial and aquatic. It prefers sheep and cattle, but will not hesitate to attack an alligator. In ancient Mexico, a cult of the jaguar arose in the belief that one who killed the animal would assume its feat power. Today, the jaguar survives in reduced numbers only in South America, with the largest population centered in the Amazon rain forest. Overall Size: 12 x 12 in. Unframed. (B15294)

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This artwork was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Silent Jungle. Seeking relief from the jungle's sweltering heat, a female Jaguar takes a cool drink from the water's edge. As her cubs frolic at her side, the mother cat's presence gives her young ones a sense of security they have come to depend upon. Blind at birth, the helpless juveniles quickly learn to rely on the warmth and nourishment that their mother unselfishly provides. As the months pass and the cubs become more independent this family bond remains strong. The doting matriarch spends two years preparing her children for survival in their jungle home.

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Alpine Antics. The cougar or puma ranges across the North American and South American continents. Second in size only to the jaguar among cats of the New World, the cougar inhabits a surprising variety of environments including deserts, jungles and mountains. In the latter habitat it is sometimes referred to as a mountain lion. Unlike true lions, cougars have no mane. These creatures also vary in color, ranging from a pale tan to a dark reddish brown, and may weigh from a minimum of 35 pounds to upwards of more than 200 pounds. Females are generally smaller. A large male may reach nine feet in length, one-third of which is tail! Like most felines, cougars are nocturnal, although some are diurnal as well, providing the areas they inhabit are undisturbed by man. Cougars have been poached in many areas because they are erroneously thought to endanger ranchers' livestock and deer populations. Although cougars subsist mainly on deer, they perform an invaluable role in weeding out the weak and injured animals, thus invigorating the remaining stock. Feasting after a successful hunt, cougars often go without eating for several days, until they can make another kill. Over 15 subspecies of cougar are known to exist and all are threatened or endangered. The numbers of two subspecies, the Eastern cougar Felis concolor cougar and the Florida cougar Felis concolor coryi, are especially dwindling. Overall Size: 18 x 18 in. Unframed. (B14684)

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was originally published on the Fleetwood Porcelain Plate for The Endangered Kingdom Collection Pride of the Savanna. A family of Lions lazes in the summer heat, recovering from the excesses of a full meal. While the female keeps a watchful eye, a cub wrestles with its father, a practice that teaches the skills needed to survive and eventually be recognized as the "king of beasts." It is not by chance that a group of Lions is called a "pride." For centuries, man has considered the Lion one of nature's most awesome and dangerous creations. Whether as mascot or adversary, the Lion has often been linked with courage. Over 3,000 years ago, the Egyptian Pharoah Amenhotep III hunted Lions with a bow and arrow from his chariot to prove his courage. As recently as the last few centuries, warriors of the Masai tribe in East Africa hunted Lions on foot. The first to grab the Lion's tail was the most courageous. Overall Size: 18 x 18 in. Unframed.

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was originally published on the Republic of the Marshall Islands 55c Lion mint stamp issued March 8, 1997. The "King of the Beasts" is perhaps the best-known of all wild animals. Ten thousand years ago the geographical distribution of this majestic creature covered most areas of the globe. Today, its greatly diminished population exists only in sub-Saharan Africa. The lion is unique among big cats in that it is habitually social, living in groups known as prides that have fixed, hierarchical patterns. Prides cooperate in hunting, natural protection and establishing territory. The entire pride also participates in raising the young -- a serious commitment since a young lion is almost two years old before it is completely able to survive on its own. The lion's preferred habitat is the open, grassy savanna of Africa that supports the great herds of hoofed animals, such as antelope, gazelle and zebra, that constitute its prey. Size: 12 x 12 in. Unframed. (B15293)

Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation. This painting was published on the Fleetwood American West Plate Collection "Driving the Herd" porcelain plate. One of the most dreaded hazards of any cattle drive is an encounter with deep water. Most of the herd will voluntarily plunge into the ford, following the leaders as they wade to dry land. However, water crossings rarely go smoothly. Once in deeper waters, drovers are faced with livestock that panic in this unfamiliar and forbidding environment. Heading off in the wrong direction, spooked cattle create a frenzy that can quickly drown both man and beast. Overall Size: 18 x 18 in. Unframed. (B14666)
