First Arrival Itoh Peony
by Elsie Baer
"This variety was developed by Mr. Itoh. He spent a huge number of years before he was successful. It's a cross between a tree Peony and a Herbaceous Peony. I think it's an absolutely gorgeous plant and I'm so happy to watch it bloom each year. I finally decided it shouldn't only be admired blooming in my garden, but should also make its way to a canvas. Thus, this painting."

Prairie Sunset

ARTIST: Cameron Bird

RESIDES: British Columbia

BIOGRAPHY: Cameron Bird has grown up with a passion for the outdoors. He began his career with sketching, which he continues to this day as reference for his larger studio oils and acrylics. His formal art training took place at Emily Carr College of Art and Capilano College where he studied commercial art; as well he completed studies in professional sign painting.

Each year Cameron gathers reference for his work while fishing, camping and hiking in the mountains and outdoors. A particular interest for Cameron is to carry his paint box with him and capture the subjects first hand.

Having studied many artists from history, Cameron is drawn to the work of the Illingworth Kerr, Maynard Dixon, Emily Carr, Carl Rungius and in particular Canadian artist Keith C Smith. Cameron studied with KC Smith for over ten years. KC helped Cameron find the knowledge and courage to produce work of power and simplicity. KC always taught him to simplify and make each brush stroke count. Cameron has always admired the use of bold color and heavy impasto.

Cameron worked as a pack horse guide in the mountains to provide him with the first hand material and reference for his paintings. He believes this experience in the wild gives his work an added authenticity and true appreciation for nature.

Cameron has been painting professionally since 1989 and full time since 1999. Cameron has had many one man and group exhibitions and is represented in a number of art galleries. He currently lives in the interior of British Columbia with his family and continues to capture and explore the wild and its animals.

Red Backed Poison Frog
by Carel Brest van Kempen
"The Red-backed Poison-Frog is one of several very closely related species found in the upper Amazon Basin in eastern Peru and western Brazil. These are tiny frogs, well under an inch long. The female lays two or three eggs at a time, which the male guards. Once they hatch, the male transports the tadpoles to a small body of water in a bromeliad or other protected place, where they live on algae, mosquito larvae, and other organic matter. The poisonous skin secretions of this species are strong enough to sicken a Human, but much less potent than those of the related Phyllobates frogs of Colombia."

"We drove to Jasper at end of Christmas holidays with my daughter and her boyfriend. He hadn’t seen the Rockies in person before or the associated wildlife. We were thrilled to see the group the males so close to us. It made a memorable impression on him(almost as much as the Oilers game they saw while here)!"

ARTIST: Darrell Bush

EDUCATION: Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
His career hit the ground running in 1987, after winning two national stamp competitions for the state of Minnesota, and Idaho. Darrell’s success continued when he was named among America’s 12 most popular artist by four different national art publications.  Art publications such as USArt magazine conducted these polls annually by surveying North American art galleries, and placed Darrell with high rankings for several years. The same publication named him a Rising Star in 1995.  Inform Art magazine named him one of the Top Ten Hottest New Artists in 1994. Darrell’s work has also been juried into many fine art shows where he has received several “Best of Show” awards. In 1997, Darrell was named “Artist of the Year” at the Wildlife, Western, and Americana Art Show in Minneapolis, MN.

Two of his lithographs hang in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and his work was also part of a special reception at the prestigious Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Actor Burt Reynolds and celebrity animal expert Jack Hanna also own his work.

Darrell has also contributed several print editions to The Boy Scouts of  America fund-raising programs. In addition, a number of conservation organizations have also benefited from his generosity including The National Fish and Wildlife Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and The National Wild Turkey Federation. Most recently Darrell was selected as a featured artist for The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Currently Cabela’s Sporting Goods Co. has featured Darrell’s art on 17 masters catalog covers the last three years, and has commissioned the 2013 covers as well.
