From the Artist: “Because of the way the continents line up and the way they separated years ago, there are many plants and animals common to America and Europe. In fact, the farther north one goes, the more one finds in common. This scene could take place in northwestern Europe or the northeastern United States and Canada. The rhododendron is found in many parts of the world. I have seen them in the Himalayas looking like massive trees covered with bunches of roses. It seems to me that wherever they grow, it is beautiful country. I would expect them in hilly areas, often with rock outcrop. There would be enough rain to give lushness to the landscape, but at the same time there is usually a cool, clean quality. Surrounding a small lake in England, these rhododendrons were so heavily laden with blossoms that some of the branches dipped down into the water. The Golden-Crowned Kinglet is called the firecrest in Europe. Both male and female have a yellow patch on the crown, but the male has a splash of bright vermillion down the center. They are so tiny that they seem like a little flower themselves except that they bounce about from twig to twig in an energetic manner. In this work I wanted to show the diminutive quality of the bird by subordinating it to the blossoms. Although the images have delicate feminine look, I was also intrigued by the abstract power created by the shapes in the reflections.” -Robert Bateman



These Blackfeet scouts are searching for adventure in the Flathead Valley of Montana. They were generally enemies of the Flatheads and would pick a fight if they had the advantage. In this scene, the men have discovered a beaded pouch. By examining it, they will likely determine the tribe it belongs to. The Flathead people had settled in the Bitterroot valley to the south of the Flathead Valley, but they roamed far and wide in search of game, including the area around Flathead Lake. The weather is partly cloudy in the painting so it allows for interesting play of light and shadow. The mountain range in the background is identifiable as the Mission Range.
