About the Artist: Wildlife artist Charley Harper (American, 19222007) spent much of his rural West Virginia childhood in stream and field ogling water striders and meadowlarks before heading off to art school Describing his method of depicting wildlife, which winnowed out all but the most important details, Harper once said, I see exciting shapes, color combinations, patterns, textures, fascinating behavior and endless possibilities for making interesting pictures. I regard the picture as an ecosystem in which all the elements are interrelated, interdependent, perfectly balanced . . . ; and herein lies the lure of painting; in a world of chaos, the picture is one small rectangle in which the artist can create an ordered universe.
