"I can't conceive of anything being more varied and rich
and handsome than the planet Earth. And its crowning
beauty is the natural world. I want to soak it up, to
understand it as well as I can, and to absorb it . . .
and then I'd like to put it together and express it in
my paintings. This is the way I want to dedicate my

"Salmon are an essential element for nourishment
of wildlife from grizzly bears to birds to other aquatic life and insects.
Moreover, scientists have just discovered that the nutrient makes its way
through bears, birds and insects to fertilize the giant west cost lowland
forest. Salmon rivers have much bigger trees than non-salmon rivers. This
fish is so important and integral to society and nature that many people
think it should be the poster creature for the Endangered Species Act
instead of the spotted owl. "
Although I have not shown a salmon in this
painting, you know that they are there. some are in the water above the
falls and others are still fighting way upstream. This is why the grizzly
bear and gull are there. This the banquet time so important to these species
and many others. It is a far-ranging crime against nature and against us to
jeopardize the spectacular wild salmon."

"As I write this, I am gazing out the studio
window, looking at the view in the late afternoon light. I am listening
to J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations transcribed from the original piano
for chamber orchestra. I am thinking about how lucky I am...lucky to
have Birgit and the other people around me...to have my daughter Sarah,
her husband Rob, and our two granddaughters living over the hill about
10 minutes away. I am also very lucky to be living in a very charming
natural setting. The mountain in my view is called Mount Maxwell, not
very high (just under 2,000 feet) as mountains go, however, because of
its steepness, it does have certain topographic distinction. It is the
subject of this painting, which was originally done for the jacket of my
book, Thinking Like a Mountain.
The title is based on some words of Aldo Leopold, the early 20th
century's Henry David Thoreau. He said that we should be thinking like a
mountain with a sense of permanence and a long view. I see the mountain
as a metaphor for our place in history at the beginning of the 21st
century. We are at a peak of human power, wealth and information. We can
see all the periods of history, all cultures and all corners of this
planet, yet our view seems to have the perspective of the insides of our
wallets. From our metaphoric mountaintop, we need to look behind at our
wonderful natural and human heritage, and cherish and protect the
abundant values to be found there. We need to look out to the sides and
see other parts of the world that need our help, but that can also give
us good ideas to go forward. The North American culture is not the only
philosophy worth following. We need to look ahead, not just years, but
generations, to be certain that our actions of today will make the world
a better and richer and more varied place for our grandchildren and
Mustang Country by Robert Bateman is
a painting with mustang horses coming down to drink at a Prairie slough.
It's based on something the artist saw more than 30 years ago. One of
the stallions is reflected in the water. As for the mares coming
down the gully, the artist intention was to make them look as if
they were walking through the grass and not on top of it.
The painting is a rare commission that
Bateman agreed to only because the person who asked for it was giving a
generous donation to the planned Robert Bateman Art and Environmental Education
Centre at Royal Roads University in Victoria.
