A Big Fish Story



A recurring theme in his paintings, says artist John Weiss, is that "strength, comfort and encouragement are always within reach." Nowhere is this more evident than in his newest painting, A Big Fish Story. Although the woods are dark and the night is cold, the figures in A Big Fish Story are bathed in light and warmth. Seated before a blazing fire, a fisherman recounts tales of his fishing prowess to an awed boy and his captivated beagle. The heat of the fire and the excitement of his grandfather´s adventure have brought a flush to the boy´s cheeks as he watches the legendary fish grow in size. Their companionship and love create a warmth that floods beyond the walls of the shelter, casting a golden glow on the snowy ground and surrounding woods. The light at the heart of A Big Fish Story draws the viewer in, and we find ourselves leaning closer to hear just how big that fish really was.

Anticipation



“Some of my paintings tell stories, some focus on man’s best friend and then there are those that capture the emotions of life,” says John Weiss. “One of the jobs of an artist is to share with the world the moments which can only be described through their medium. Anticipation is one of those paintings. When the early morning temperatures sink lower than that of the water of Portage Lakes, the fog creates one of nature’s most captivating moods. And it is out of this fog that the Black Labrador greets this pair of men in their bass boat.”

Christmas On The Eighth



To the dedicated golfer, a day without golf is hardly a day at all. Imagining Christmas for these enthusiasts, Bill Phillips created Christmas on the Eighth, a charming holiday tribute to those most loyal of hobbyists. “I expect that if they were really into it they would have gone out, cleared the snow off the greens and played a round of golf,” says the artist. At the end of the eighth hole, though, it’s nice to have a warm, cheery house to which to return.

Dry Moccasins



Who could this person be? He is alone and has stopped on his water route long enough to build a fire, have a bit to eat and drink, maybe even to dry items that have gotten wet along the way.



This is the 18th century—somewhere. Is he English… or their enemy, the French? We cannot see enough of his flintlock to tell if it is of French or English design. He appears to be a trader, but doesn’t have much with him. The cloth near his leg reveals his goods: silver trade items. His pistol is fully cocked; is he fearful? He has no furs and his Algonquin canoe isn’t large enough for many anyway. His mismatched paddles might have come from two different Indian tribes.



Could this man be the English trader, John Frasier, as he escaped downriver from the French soldiers at Venango—his trading post on the Allegheny River—in 1752? The French had come down from what is now Canada into the Ohio Valley, along the Allegheny River, to rid the region of English influence. They confiscated Frasier’s trading post and a blacksmith shop. Fraser lost all his trade goods but escaped capture.

Elk Omelette



This incident happened to Robin O'Brien of Georgia. He was working for the Yellowstone Park Service, packing out on the though fare trail. A large bull elk come around the bend on the same trail, saw the horse and mules and apparently thought they were other elk. He lowered his head, snorted and pawed the earth ready for a fight. Robins animals spooked. Two of the mules, tied head to pack saddle, ran on either side of a tree - breaking the packs - scattering food and supplies - and crashed unto each other, breaking free from Robin and each other. All 3 mules lit out back the way they had come. Quite the rodeo. The elk disappeared fortunately - but Robin spent quite a while gathering up food, supplies and th long gone mules.

Making Memories



“One of the real thrills of my year was the chance to take my dad fishing,” John said when asked about the inspiration for his latest piece. “My father and I went down to Portage Lakes at Dusty’s Marina, where I keep my boat, and I got him an old-fashioning fishing cane pole. We hadn’t been fishing in years, and the sight of him fishing on the dock was an inspiration. We are so blessed to spend time with loved ones, and it was a real joy to spend this time with him. For the record, he caught more fish than I did.”

Small River Big Fish



Fish On! Taut line, bent rod, quick snap, big grin, reel whines, arms high, bigger grin. Out of the corner of their eye from a hundred yards away, any angler can recognize the lines, body language and adrenaline surge of a hook-up. It is gestalt personified.



Nelson Boren’s rise to prominence in the art world has been built upon applying this concept of gestalt to cowboy life. His large format graphics tell whole stories of the durable American icon one intimate slice at a time. So, it was only a matter of time before Nelson’s other great passion emerged in the studio. 



With his first release on the art of fishing, Nelson presents us with just a fragment of a magic day on a clear cold river. Quickly, the mind flows and we fill in the rest; lunkers cruising just beneath the surface, a furtive boil here and there, shooting lines, the favored creel heavy with success. Reproduced as a Fine Art Giclée on Paper this edition captures all the wonder and presentation of the watercolor original and is sure to disappear as quickly as a tail rise in a favored run.
