Happy Holidays 2015 from Ed Anderson Art! It’s been a tremendous year for Ed. We can’t offer enough thanks to all those who made it possible. By our calculations he logged almost 100,000 miles, 6 countries, and way too many US states. There’s also been some tremendous partnerships formed. In fact, too many to mention in this entry. Rest assured it’s going to be a big 2016.
Many have expressed interest in print availability. Unfortunately, we did have to pull all limited prints off the presses. If you do need a last minute gift idea, go check out Old Wood Signs and the collection Ed has put together for them. Or, Ed’s “Bugle Once” has been included as part of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s fundraising program. Find it on their website.
Ed will be releasing new work in the coming weeks as we build a larger media footprint. Keep your heads up and stay warm.
It was a great trip for Ed to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundations Elk Camp at the Las Vegas Convention Center. He spent a few days with the boys of Maven from Lander, Wyoming and worked on a new elk piece titled “Billowing Up”. It is 3x5ft acrylic and ink on canvas. It was a great place to work Americana with Cowboy Christmas right downstairs and the National Finals Rodeo in town.
After a great season of elk hunting at the No Business Lodge in Valley County, Idaho, Ed’s work has been recently been inspired. His new paintings reflect his time in the woods. Being in Vagas with all the other hunters was a great time to reflect.
Also, Ed brought “Bugle Once”, the recent selection of the RMEF catalogug from their Featured Artist Program.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation has chosen Ed’s “Round Valley Bull” as part of their supplemental art program. Prints will be available through the Foundation’s annual catalogue and will function as a method of fundraising for local chapters. Stay tuned to his Facebook page and Instagram feeds for updates on when this print will be available to purchase. The original is presently available through the studio, please contact us directly if you are interested.
This exciting new partnership marries two of Ed’s passions, wildlife and art. He’s thrilled that this project will support the fundraising efforts of local Rocky Mountain Elk chapters and will further sustain the health and habitat of this great species.
The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is dedicated to preserving the future of elk and other wildlife, as well as their habitat and the hunting heritage. For more information about the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, please visit their website.
It was a great time doing a live elk painting through Art on the Green in Coeur d Alene August 2-4. The final product is 10 feet acrylic and ink on board. Each panel of the piece is 8 feet tall. Thanks to all the kids who helped splash some paint around. Big thanks to both Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Elk 101 for sponsoring. Also, thanks to Nick Drummond for the tunes and Bryan Huskey and Fishbite Media for editing.
