A Parliament Of Owls



Artist Scott Gustafson has of late been inspired by aphorisms and the turn of a phrase including most recently the Fine Art Limited Editions Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil and Birds of a Feather Flock Together. Birds have the type of unique collective nouns that send Gustafson into inspired flights of fancy. A peep of chickens, a band of jays, a conspiracy of ravens, a murder of crows and yes, a parliament of owls! This Great Horned orator speaks with commanding authority and while the front row struggles to stay awake, most of the others are rapt listeners.

Frederick The Literate



Holy Cats! It’s A Tale of Two Kitties. Want to learn How to Smell a Rat? Is there anything you want to know about Caterwaul’s Catalog of Hairballs but were afraid to ask? There’s a very specialized library in Frederick the Literate, arguably Charles Wysocki’s most beloved cat painting and it’s available for the first (and last!) time in a giclée canvas edition for a very small group of collectors who order this Anniversary edition published by the Greenwich Workshop as a Personal Commission. The edition will be limited to the exact number of collectors who order it by June 30, 2011. After that date, no more orders will be taken and no more canvas gicleés will be produced.



These are every cat’s dream books from Field Guide to the Garbage Can to Delicious Field Mice I Have Known by international best-selling catty writers such as Thomas Cheshire and Kitty Mewpur. Frederick the Literate himself, exhausted from all this study, sleeps soundly, dreaming of the next big catch.



“We’re both cat lovers and this painting is dedicated to Frederick,” said the artist.” “He was one of our favorite cats, if not the favorite. Fred was Mr. Wonderful but now he’s in the library in the sky. Although we’re all very dedicated and serious about our artwork, there is always time for humor. As soon as we came up with the idea, we knew what we had to do it. My wife Liz and I spent our breakfasts, lunches and dinners thinking about the book titles for this painting, including Cat-o Nine Tales, Rat Holes of the World and The Catebury Tales. This is one of those cases when after all these years of doing more subtle ‘story’ humor, all my more obvious puns were piling up. They had to come out!”



Commission Your Edition Before Time Runs Out!

Orders Must be placed by June 30, 2011



What is a Personal Commission?

The Personal Commission was created by The Greenwich Workshop, Inc. as a way for all customers who desire so to collect an artist whose fine art editions often sell out and are difficult to find. Collectors “commission” their personal copy of a given edition during a set period of time. Delivery of completed edition begins shortly after the edition size is determined by the total number of orders received during the Commission Period.



This Fine Art Anniversary Giclée Canvas edition will be limited to the number of prints ordered during the commission period May 1, 2011 - June 30, 2011. Confirmation of the final edition size will be sent July 5, 2011.

Hear No Evil



The proverb of the Three Wise Monkeys, commonly known as “hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil” most likely originated in Japan hundreds of years ago. Since then it has become an internationally recognized image, interpreted by artists around the world. Scott Gustafson adds his own playful touch to the three wise monkeys in his latest contribution to the SmallWorks™ collection.

Hold To The Rod, The Iron Rod



Hold to the rod, the iron rod;
’Tis strong, and bright, and true.
The iron rod is the word of God;
’Twill safely guide us through.

(Joseph L. Townsend, The Iron Rod, LDS Hymns, no. 274)

As we walk the road of life, we tend to collect things that make us feel safer and more sure of ourselves. These may be material possessions, titles or responsibilities, but in the end they amount to the same thing: a fleeting and superficial sense of security. It is only by holding fast to our beliefs that we can navigate life with any confidence.

The character in Hold to the Rod finds himself so burdened with the mundane objects he has collected that, while he hopefully eyes the rod, he cannot reach up to hold it for fear of losing something else. The man has become little more than a vehicle for his adornments. He demonstrates that what is truly important is keeping sight of our true belief and faith, that they alone will guide us through.

Outside The Box



This hunchback “Everyman” of James C. Christensen’s symbology is not only thinking outside the box, he is outside of his box. He’s arrived and if he had any trouble getting here, it’s behind him now. It’s like getting up very early in the morning, before everyone else, to take quiet time to reflect. It’s a perfect moment, sitting on the checkered gameboard of life and contemplating a cloudless future. In a couple of hours he may be joined by others, or maybe not, but for now the sky’s the limit, the air smells great and the possibilities are endless.

Tempus Fugit (Time Flies)

The Blind Leading The Blind



The Parable of the Blind is one of the best-known sections from Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount. It reads: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit?” Jesus used the metaphor of the blind men to suggest to his followers that they examine their own hearts and souls before calling attention to the flaws of others. James Christensen has taken the parable in a new, more light-hearted direction in The Blind Leading the Blind. Christensen sees his blind men as archetypal figures, embodying the different ways people deal with difficult situations. All four men are lost, but their expressions reveal their attitudes: one man is unhappy, one is content with his lot, one man is confused and one has tumbled into the pit entirely. The Blind Leading the Blind is a whimsical reminder to remain humble—and to give others the benefit of the doubt.

The Candleman



If you wander through the cobblestone streets at night, you can feel secure in the circle of light cast by The Candleman. Here, the children, wide-eyed and wondering, will be safe though it’s late and they’re far from home. The trusty Candleman will escort them through the still silence of the snow covered streets by the light of his torch and his hat abrim with burning candles. In James C. Christensen’s marvelous world “just a little left of reality,” The Candleman, like a friendly crossing guard you may remember from your school days, keeps a loving and watchful eye on everyone in his care.
