Description
Collectors of Daniel Smith's Fine Art Editions are already familiar with his astonishing versatility. This artist is not gathering moss painting the same one or two species. He is equally at home painting a bear in water as he is a thundering herd of buffalo or a mountain lion poised to leap. The subject of Summit Sanctuary is the Dall sheep in a perfect alpine landscape that shows the high elevation these mountaineers prefer. The Dall sheep inhabit the subarctic mountain ranges of Alaska and the Canadian northwest and their adaptation to this rugged high country environment has ensured their survival for thousands of years. Storm clouds may gather on the ridge top but this group of three relaxes in a spot of sun, taking in what must be an expansive view below.

The Artist

Daniel Smith

Daniel Smith, one of America's foremost nature artists, enjoys wide acclaim for his spectacular depictions of landscapes and wildlife.

Smith lives in the mountains of Montana where artistic inspiration surrounds him. He has been painting full time for over twenty years and has had more than 100 of his paintings reproduced as limited edition prints. He began his career designing conservation stamps. He has designed more than thirty stamps including the 1988-89 Federal Duck Stamp and was selected as Ducks Unlimited International Artist of the Year for the second time in 2002. In 2003 he received three prestigious awards from the Society of  Animal Artists. These included an Award of Excellence, The Leonard J. Meiselman Award for a Realistic Painting Executed in an Academic Manner, and The Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum Purchase Award.

The detail and scientific accuracy of Smith's art caught the eyes of organizations such as the National Geographic Society, who commissioned him to paint five color plates for The Field Guide to the Birds of North America, and the prestigious "Birds in Art" exhibition sponsored by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. In 1996 he was inducted into the U.S. ART Hall of Fame due to his great popularity among print collectors.

Smith travels frequently to research his subjects in their natural habitat, believing that there is no substitute for personal experience in the field. He says of his work, "I want people to experience the peace, the tranquillity of the wilderness, of being the only one out there, communing with nature." An ardent supporter of wildlife conservation, he feels indebted to the natural world that has provided him with the sole inspiration for his award-winning career.
