Wylde is featured in this delightful painting. The scene takes place in Colorado, near Steamboat. One never knows what is out in the forest. Thank goodness Wylde has the little Woodchucks watching out for him.

Bison, symbolic animals of the Great Plains, are often mistakenly called buffaloes. By any name, they are formidable beasts and the heaviest land animals in North America. I photographed this Bison mother and her calf while on a trip to Wyoming with artist friends. I was so immersed in the beauty around us, we were surrounded with wildlife. It was a memorizing experience for me. I got back in my Cave Creek studio and this is the first painting of an ongoing series of wildlife pieces I am creating. Bison stand some 5 to 6.5 feet tall at the shoulder and can tip the scales at over a ton. Despite their massive size, bison are quick on their feet. When the need arises, they can run at speeds up to 40 miles an hour. They sport curved, sharp horns that may grow to be two feet long.

American Freedom by Sharon Brening. This oil painting is part of her Honoring America series. Limited Edition Giclée prints are available. The bald eagle, with its snowy feathered (not bald) head and white tail, is the proud national bird symbol of the United States. These majestic birds have a wingspan of 6 to 8 feet. The eagles can live up to 28 years and mate for life. More than 95 percent of bird species are monogamous, making them among the most loyal members of the animal kingdom. The Native Americans consider the bald eagle and the golden eagle to be sacred. As eagles are the highest-flying birds, they were seen to be nearer to the Creator. The meaning of the Eagle symbol was to signify courage, wisdom and strength and its purpose was as the messenger to the Creator.

John is one of our local Cave Creek cowboys. With a good horse and saddle he rides through brush and thicket gathering his cattle. I was fortunate one day while out riding to run across John and his wife Andy gathering cattle for an old-time branding.

This is a painting from my Native American series. I started painting Native American children full time starting in 2001. This painting portrays Skye Blue and her little sister Luna Cloud. The love Skye has for her new sibling is so heartwarming. Luna is so intrigued with the turquoise pendant that is so traditional with the Navajo tribe.

The southwest is full of wide-open beautiful space. This is the area around Shiprock, New Mexico, a hub for trading with local people. Many of the children I paint were born here at the Shiprock hospital. The people live so remotely and in such a vast area Shiprock seemed to be a central location. Skye Blue has been modeling me since she was an infant. In this painting she is with her sister Breezy Summer. Their outfits are made from elk hide, all hand fashioned by the grandmother and family. There is a blue-ribbon award on Skye’s dress. Breezy’s dress is now part of my Native dresses.

The Rainmaker was created after spending a day at Angel Peak located in San Juan Badlands Canyon, New Mexico. It was quite a spiritual and reflective time as everything unfolded in perfect synchronicity. On our way to this destination for our photo shoot, we stopped and gathered Navajo tea, which Wylde is holding in his left hand. In his right hand he is raising his medicine to the creator and giving thanks. The medicine pouch contains sacred items. A personal medicine bag may contain objects that symbolize personal well-being and tribal identity. Traditionally, medicine bags are worn under the clothing. This is Wylde in his 11th year.

I was extremely lucky to capture a couple wolves with my telephoto lens! The Northern Range in Yellowstone is the best area of the park to view large wildlife. The wolves run in packs of 8 to 10. Currently there are about 8 packs roaming Yellowstone Park. About half of wolves in Yellowstone are gray in color, with the other half mostly dark black coats. January 12, 2020, marked the 25th anniversary since wolves returned to Yellowstone.

These birds are fun to watch because of their whimsical nature. The Cactus Wren lives in scrubby areas of our beautiful Sonoran Desert. They inhabit areas with cholla, saguaro, and prickly-pear cacti, among other desert shrubs and trees. The Cactus Wren is Arizona’s state bird.

The American bison was named the national mammal of the United States on May 9, 2016. This majestic animal joins the ranks of the Bald Eagle as the official symbol of our country -- and much like the eagle, it is one of the greatest conservation success stories of all time. In prehistoric times, millions of bison roamed North America -- from the forests of Alaska and the grasslands of Mexico to Nevada’s Great Basin and the eastern Appalachian Mountains. But by the late 1800s, there were only a few hundred bison left in the United States after European settlers pushed west, reducing the animal’s habitat and hunting the bison to near extinction. Had it not been for a few private individuals working with tribes, states and the Interior Department, the bison would be extinct today. Bison have lived in Yellowstone National Park area since prehistoric times, and Yellowstone is where I photographed this magnificent mammal.
