The Arrival

by Bev Doolittle®

The first sight of buffalo ignites excitement within a party of scouts. The lives of these men and these animals are entwined together on the vast map of the Great Plains. The arrival of the buffalo will herald many celebrations. The Creator has bestowed an answer to the tribe’s prayers with a gift of rain and endless herds.

A season of provisioning begins, as the resourceful Natives prepare to utilize every part of the bison for clothing, shelter, tools, weapons and food.

A continuance of harmony and thanksgiving will propel the tribe for another year. Or, is there a storm-warning on the horizon? - Bev Doolittle

It seems that with every artist there are works that manage to make it into private collections before they are properly documented. Some of these can, in hindsight, be rather important ones. They are known to exist, but their whereabouts are a mystery. As is often the case, in time, they somehow, some way, some day reappear.

Bev painted The Arrival in 1977 and sold it through the Carson Gallery in Denver, Colorado, her originals distributor at that time. The work’s trail ended there. Long thought lost, the painting was recently rediscovered! In the thirty-year period since its rendering, Bev has produced fifty Fine Art Editions, as well as seven books and folios of collected works, all published by The Greenwich Workshop. Until now, The Arrival remained elusive.

Available in print for the very first time, it is one of the earliest works featuring the rendering style Bev has become renowned for. Storytelling is a hallmark of nearly all of her compositions, and The Arrival is no exception. The palette and design are instantly recognizable. Both are in service of the eponymous “Doolittle narrative” which has shaped the artist’s reputation.

Storytelling through design is the hallmark of any Bev Doolittle work, and The Arrival is no exception. There is no escaping the implication of a “storm on the horizon.” Those dark clouds immediately bring to mind the Native American experience in North America. This is storytelling through design at its finest.

The Arrival will be reproduced with an eye towards tradition but with the most up-to-date technology. This Fine Art Giclée will be created on the highest quality fine art textured paper. Deckled edges allow for either a traditional or floating presentation of the framed image.

Desperation

by Cristina Penencu

Welcome Cristina Penescu to the Greenwich Workshop Family of Artists! If you think these are photographs, you better look again. They are scratchboard renderings by one very talented young woman. Cristina was born in Bucharest, Romania, 1988 and her family relocated to California when Cristina was just a year old.

At 21, she is as accomplished as an artist twice her age. Her perspective is fresh and is reflected in her approach to the classic scratchboard medium, balanced by a maturity that both she and her work carry. It is a trait, we have found, that is common to the artists Greenwich ends up publishing for decades.

She enjoys painting a wide variety of wildlife subjects, however wild canids, especially wolves, hold a special place in her heart. “
Desperation carries a message that, as a lover of wildlife and nature, I wish I did not need to voice. This piece was created as a direct response to the ongoing hatred and persecution that plagues these beautiful canids. Is this wolf crying out in defiance? Anger? Anguish? That is for the viewer to decide.”

Cautious Observation

by Cristina Penescu

Cautious Observation is a scratchboard portrait of a wolf dog that I was blessed to share my life with,” relates Cristina. “He possessed an almost childlike curiosity for the world around him. One day, while testing some photographic lighting equipment outside, he approached me, curious as to what I was doing but uncertain about the new, large equipment I was working with. This was his reaction to everything he considered new. With this portrait, my goal was to capture that inner conflict between curiosity and uncertainty as if he is examining the viewer for the first time, trying to decide whether or not to approach.”
