"Inside Passage" Print, Signed by Artist
20 1/2" x 15 1/2" framed, double-matted, and signed limited reproduction print of Yukie Adams' "Inside Passage." The Tlingit-Haida native motif is from the Alaskan northwest coast.
Yukie Adams was born in Japan, but became part of the Tlingit culture when she fell in love with and married an Alaskan Tlingit man, Henry Adams. She made a study of the native arts of the Northwest Coast and began creating designs for paintings, serigraphs, prints & drums. After she lost her husband she started to create wood carvings and mixed media. The combination of modernism and traditionalism is a unique identity of her works.

"Sunrise in the Garden" - Oil on Canvas, 30" x 40"
Mike looks at the world differently. His sweeping landscapes and broad, colorful strokes are motivated by the Impressionists of the past, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, and Picasso, viewing the world through the same non-traditional lens. Mike is enthralled by how light flows through nature. In his art, Mike explores and employs light to create drama -- deep shadows and intense highlights. Coupled with light, he looks for the awe in nature -- majestic purple mountains in the morning, rays streaming through the trees, brilliant sunsets gushing against thunderous storm clouds.
Mike's artwork is currently being featured in the Alvarez Art School's Fakes and Forgeries Art Show in Colorado Springs (AlvarezArtSchool.com). Mike's art can also be viewed on CulturallyArts.com, or on his website: RusselMountainGallery.com. Mike lives with his wife in Colorado Springs, where the majestic Pike's Peak watches overhead.
Artist's Statement: "Sunrise in the Garden is a portrayal of the sun's early light penetrating the massive sandstone slabs of the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The sunlight burns orange and pink on the rock's edges, while the morning rays bounce reflections through and around the sandstone. Although the Garden of the Gods is orange-colored from a distance, its sedimentary structures beam with cool greens and blues, and vivid pinks and whites. Through the use of perspective, the most intense colors appear closest to the viewer, while faded pastel colors form the faded background scenery. The shadows define the intricate details in the massive vertical sentinels. The overall panorama displays its brilliant colors and wondrous architecture - the awe of nature."

14" x 17" framed and double-matted photograph of Shunka, a timber/arctic wolf who lived at the Colorado Wolf and WIldlife Center in Divide, CO.
Shunka lived with the beautiful Akela. He was laid back, but decided to retire from the limelight after being ambassador, seeing many VIP guests, and raising pups for many years.
Shunka was rescued from a wolf center in Puget Sound, Washington where the owner did not spay or neuter her animals. We had availability for two of the surplus pups, so we took brothers, Shunka and Wakanda. Shunka was best known for his massive size and beautiful eyes. He was one of the largest wolves at the sanctuary at 140 lbs.
