1. Stephen Lyman Morning Solitude ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $550.00

One of the most elegant of the wading birds, a Great Blue Heron, waits silently on the rocky shore of a lake in the morning mists. Although not usually seen in snow, the birds will winter anywhere the water does not freeze over and the fish are plentiful. They will stand motionless in the water until a fish swims within range of their lightning-fast beaks.

This Anniversary Edition Fine Art Canvas exudes a serene quality that is almost oriental in nature making it one of Stephen Lyman’s most unique and sought-after works of art.

2. Stephen Lyman Breaking the Trail SMALLWORK EDITION ON   $295.00

Artist Stephen Lyman was an unparalleled wildlife painter in his lifetime with a wide range of subjects from the near extinct and elusive, to the backyard visitor. Inspired by the naturalist John Muir, Lyman’s life’s work was the discovery and portrayal of the wonders of the natural world.

Lyman was as likely to turn his attention to the seemingly insignificant (plants, trees, rock formations) he encountered along the trail as he was to focus on the impressive and captivating “megafauna” such as this bison. He considered himself, in this regard, a painter of the wilderness, not a wildlife painter. Breaking the Trail, a previously unpublished jewel by Stephen Lyman, is an example of his ability to capture wildlife in an environment that provides both scale and a glimpse of the animal’s habitat.

Bison not only roamed the Great Plains but made their way well into the mountains and the forests throughout their expansive North American rangelands. Additionally, riding out a snowstorm in the tall pines was most likely a preferable experience to one on the open prairie. This uniquely-shaped horizontal painting, though far smaller in size, brings to mind Lyman’s High Creek Crossing, a 2003 MasterWork® Anniversary edition Sold Out at Publisher.

3. Stephen Lyman Sunset Fire ANNIVERSARY MASTERWORK EDITION   $850.00

Artist Stephen Lyman was always on the lookout for a challenge, both in wilderness experiences and in his art. In the late 1980s, already with hundreds of campfires built and enjoyed, he realized he had never quite seen a really good painting of a campfire. He set out to study the unique combination of light, air and fire that becomes the beloved campfire that is both a symbol of independent rugged living and a link to our most primitive ancestors. His painting and subsequent Fine Art Print entitled A Mountain Campfire was the result and it became the first of series of what is now known as his “firelight series.”

Never content to do the same thing twice, Stephen perfected painting campfires at different times of day and varying landscapes, mostly in Yosemite National Park. In Sunset Fire, the setting is late summer, most of the snow has melted from the mountains so perhaps the fire is built less for heat than to cook a meal and as an inspiration for an evening of storytelling. The vertical composition, heightened by the towering pine, seems to lift the fire and embers into the twilight sky. Your friends will want to lean in for a hint of the smoky aroma if you bring the captivating warmth and irresistible attraction of this mountain campfire into your home.

4. Stephen Lyman Among the Wild Brambles ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $495.00

5. Stephen Lyman Return of the Falcon ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $695.00

In the 1950s and 60s, the worldwide population of peregrines, one of the most widespread birds on earth, plummeted drastically. The word “peregrine” means “the wanderer” and they were once found from coast to coast in North America. DDT laced pesticides nearly brought this raptor to extinction. The falcon disappeared from Yosemite in the late 1940s.

Today, this bird of prey is a symbol of a recovering species. In August 1999, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removed the American peregrine falcon from the list of endangered and threatened species, marking one of the most dramatic successes of the Endangered Species Act. In November 2009, the peregrine was removed from California’s endangered species list, 10 years after it was federally delisted. Yosemite National Park represents the highest peregrine falcon nesting density in the Sierra Nevadas and has played a key role in its recovery since peregrines were first re-discovered in Yosemite in 1978, breeding on El Capitan.

In this painting, I have attempted to convey the immense space of Yosemite Valley with Half Dome bathed in the fleeting, golden light of sunset,” Steve Lyman said. “A peregrine falcon, the perfect flying machine, is a master of the air in grace, agility and speed. Its spectacular aerial displays and power dives at prey can at times exceed 200 miles per hour. This one waits, perched on precipitous cliffs, for prey to fly within range of his extraordinarily keen eyesight, ready to launch into the air at any moment.

If there was ever a contemporary artist that could capture on canvas the aura of Yosemite National Park, it was Steve Lyman. He was John Muir, the great naturalist, reincarnate. Like Muir, he was most alive and garnered his deepest inspiration while tramping through and about this great natural wonder.
Return of the Falcon was created in 1988 to recognize the efforts of all who participated in the peregrine recovery programs in the Yosemite area. This striking 22 x 35 Fine Art Edition Giclée canvas captures all the sweeping grandeur as well as the subtle detail of Lyman’s original work. The Greenwich Workshop Anniversary Edition program has introduced to a new generation of collectors the brilliant paintings of this talented naturalist. Return of the Falcon is truly a prime example of the wonder and beauty of one of the most important wildlife artists of our time.

6. Stephen Lyman Boulder Bruin SMALLWORK EDITION ON   $275.00

Artist Stephen Lyman was as likely to turn his attention to the seemingly insignificant (plants, trees, rock formations) he encountered along the trail as he was to focus on the impressive and captivating “megafauna” such as bear. He considered himself, in this regard, a painter of the wilderness, not a wildlife painter. Boulder Bruin, a previously unpublished jewel by Stephen Lyman, is an example of his ability to capture wildlife in an environment that provides both scale and a glimpse of the animal’s habitat. More often than not, that location was in the artist’s beloved Yosemite National Park.

“I often come across beautiful little spots such as this,” he said of this painting, “colorful foliage growing among granite slopes and boulders, backlit with warm afternoon sunbeams. The bear, not as often.”

Enjoy this SmallWorks® of a big subject in your home and it will give you a lifetime window seat on the wilderness.

7. Stephen Lyman Silent Snows ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $595.00

This special Greenwich Workshop Anniversary Edition features two of Stephen Lyman’s favorites: the Alaskan wilderness and the timber wolf. Steve would return home from camping trips to Denali National Park reinvigorated, impressed and inspired by the area’s vastness and beauty. The place became all the more wild to him knowing animals like the caribou, bear and wolf roamed the woods and mountains around him.
A faint smell, sight or sound has brought a pause to this timber wolf’s noiseless amble over a favorite backwoods track. Familiar with the intimate rhythms of his woodland domain, he is assessing whether it is an opportunity or threat he has encountered as an early season snow envelopes the surrounding hills.

8. Stephen Lyman Color in the Snow ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $550.00

“A male pheasant has bright, colorful feathers,” said Stephen Lyman, “which create a beautiful accent against the more subtle, neutral colors of winter.” Originally from China, the ringneck or Oregon pheasant was introduced to North America and Europe in the late 18090s as a game bird. It thrives in small groves with underbrush and in pockets of grass among trees and shrubs. It’s related to the partridge and to the even more colorful peacock.

This classic Stephen Lyman composition also contrasts the low lying subject with the soaring elevation in the backdrop of hills and trees, focusing the eye first on the bird and then up through the painting.

9. Stephen Lyman Moonbear Listens to the Earth ANNIVERSARY EDITION ON   $395.00

“Steve painted this in honor of my Native American-inspired music and my dedication to the larger circle of life. ‘Moonbear’ is the name of my recording company and this image is its symbol. I’ve always had a place in my heart for this beautiful painting.” » Andrea Lyman

This Greenwich Workshop Anniversary edition features a bear, one of Steve's most-memorable yet rarely-painted subjects. The native Miwok word for the grizzly bear is the source of the name Yosemite, which was the artist's favorite place on Earth. The quiet serenity of this, one of Steve's few images featuring the bear, is a reminder of our fellowship with both the natural and animal world which honor the memory and legacy of the artist.

10. Stephen Lyman Riparian Riches MASTERWORK ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $950.00

‘Riparian’ refers to the life zone along a waterway or a lake and the riches are all the life inhabiting that zone from beneath the dappled water to the foliage in treetops.

“I wanted to do a very long, wide-angle view of a slow-moving river because I really enjoy painting crystal-clear water with reflections including the textures in the foliage on the opposite side of the river,” said artist Stephen Lyman. “I purposely shortened the view to include just a peek of the sky, because I wanted the viewer to feel this landscape intimately. There’s sand, lichen on boulders, leaves, trunks of trees, grasses, roots and many other things. It’s almost like a still life. Even the bird, a great blue heron, stands motionless in the water, waiting for a fish to come by for breakfast. I chose him because of his quiet and patient personality.”

11. Stephen Lyman End of the Ridge ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $795.00

Artist Stephen Lyman was inspired by wildlife and wilderness and nowhere more than in his beloved Yosemite Park. There, he could climb the highest point of a crest at 11,860 feet and feel seated on a throne in a place where the universe seemed upside down, as though gravity were irrelevant and the sky around him became an ocean. No wonder Lyman’s muse, naturalist and conservationist John Muir, said that from these heights in Yosemite he loved nothing more than to dip his head into the sky.

“On an off-trail backpacking trip, after a steep, strenuous climb up what I thought was the side of the mountain, the rock suddenly dropped away into space and I realized I was on a ridge,” said artist Stephen Lyman. “That experience was the inspiration for this painting. The mountain goats are surveying the expanse of a clearing storm from the ‘end of the ridge.’”

12. Stephen Lyman Companions SMALLWORK EDITION ON   $235.00

Shortly before his death in April of 1996, Stephen Lyman was named one of the top artists in the country by U.S. Art magazine and the Greenwich Workshop Press published his book, Into the Wilderness: An Artist’s Journey. Already known for his wildlife in situ paintings, Lyman’s fine art print career was soaring following a series of campfire and Yosemite landscape paintings that placed the viewer inside the scene. He was only age 38 and had just begun to experiment in another painting style, which Companions exemplifies. With a looser painting style than his earlier work, it is more a painting of light than subject, as though the wolves allowed the artist to better depict the sunrise as it shimmered through the pines, crossed their fur backs and lit up their frosty breath. For Lyman collectors and those who have just discovered him, this Smallworks® will light up a corner in your world.

13. Stephen Lyman North Country Shores MASTERWORK ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $950.00

Through years of study and exploration, Stephen Lyman discovered his calling: to paint the wilderness with passion and commitment. Through his paintings you, too, can travel deep into the woods, find serenity at the water’s edge and feel completely at home in the wild. North Country Shores, part of a series the artist referred to as “light in the wilderness,” embodies three of his favorite landscape subjects: water, light and wildlife. “The strong wind is coming off the lake right into your face, so you can imagine yourself standing there, your hair blowing back, being washed over by all this light, beauty and freshness,” said the artist. “The whole feeling I wanted to paint was golden, fresh, pristine, windblown purity.” Clear, cold and suffused with golden light, this spectacular, late winter afternoon vista is accented by the bald eagle poised in flight with a fresh catch in its claws.

14. Stephen Lyman Coyote Afternoon SMALLWORK EDITION ON   $235.00

15. Stephen Lyman A Walk in the Woods   $650.00

The bulk and majesty of a solitary bull (male) moose moves deliberately through a forest of aspen. He appears and disappears as he weaves through the trees in deep snow. The mating season completed, this bull will drop his antlers soon in order to conserve energy for the winter. A new set of antlers will grow in the spring. The moose and the American aspen are native to much of the same North American territory. A Walk in the Woods is an iconic Stephen Lyman image: a spectacular wildlife subject, ensconced in its habitat.

16. Stephen Lyman Evening Star ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $595.00

The planet Venus (also known as the evening star) has inspired poets, painters and dreamers for millenia. As the sun sinks below the pink horizon, it appears, a sentinel to warn travelers to find a place to bed down for the night. This idyllic scene is part of Lyman’s campfire series, which also includes Warmed by the View, Fire Dance and Embers at Dawn, all of which are Sold Out at Publisher.

17. Stephen Lyman The Field Watcher SMALLWORK EDITION ON   $245.00

18. Stephen Lyman Lake of the Shining Rocks MASTERWORK ANNIVERSARY EDITION   $1250.00

“When this lake was named Tenaya Lake, after the last chief of the Ahwahneechee Indians, that tribe already had its own name for it,” wrote Stephen Lyman. “For generations, they had been calling Pyweak (Pie-wee-ack), which means Lake of the Shining Rocks. It’s a very beautiful place where a lot of people go in the summertime, but by October everybody’s back at school or back at work.
“I really enjoy painting light, trees, rocks, water and reflections. I love those elements and I love walking over the rock in Yosemite. This is a scene that just invites you to step onto that slope, even though it’s not level. It’s asking you to keep your balance and open your senses as fully as you can. Walking over that rock puts you in touch with nature ą with all of life, really.”

19. Stephen Lyman ABOVE THE FOREST Limited Edition   $225.00

A quiet place, far from the crowd with a stunning view; who says we are the only species capable of enjoying such moments? Would the feline see the beauty of the rich color and texture of his perch as well? “Steve,” Andrea Lyman says, “chose painting the lynx from this perspective because at all levels, it is something few get to experience first hand.”

20. Stephen Lyman IN THE HEART OF ALASKA   $745.00

As Andrea Lyman tells us, Steve loved the Alaskan landscape. He would always return home from camping trips to Denali National Park reinvigorated, impressed and inspired by the area's vastness and beauty. Caribou, he felt, exemplified an animal that could survive only in an area untouched by humans. It's likely no one was within miles of Steve when he was taking the photos this image is based upon, an idea he would have appreciated.

Available in both a print and giclTe canvas edition.
Print edition: Image size: 35w x 115/8h. 550 signed by Andrea Lyman and consecutively numbered.

22. Stephen Lyman STORM OVER TENAYA CANYON   $895.00

One of the great gifts of Steve’s life was sharing his intimate knowledge of Yosemite, which he literally knew from top to bottom. In AhwahneełThe Deep Grassy Valley, he guides us through the verdant valley floor. In Dance of Cloud and Cliff, he lifts us up to majestic Half Dome, bathed in setting sunlight. With his classic, monumental landscape Storm Over Tenaya Canyon, we soar higher still. Steve often included wildlife in his pieces and sometimes suggested a narrative, but this pure landscape and the others shown here are deliberate departuresą almost certainly inspired by the dramatic images of Albert Bierstadt and other 19th-century painters of the west. Published from the artist’s original acrylic painting.

24. Stephen Lyman HANDSOME   $295.00

As Andrea Lyman remembers, “Steve loved to glorify the small, easily overlooked beauties of nature. This is a Clark’s Nutcracker, a kind of common nuthatch we saw every winter near our home. From far away it’s a rather plain-looking bird, but up close Steve sawłand capturedłthe delicate juxtaposition between light and dark feathers on its wings.” A little canvas jewel from Stephen Lyman, replicating the subtle texture of his original.

25. Stephen Lyman BEACH BONFIRE   $225.00

This campfire is in a small, private cove and it's shown against the background of the pounding Pacific surf. People go to the beach for the same reason they go to the hills - to experience the natural environment. It's fun to explore new ways of experiencing light in the wilderness . . . no matter what the setting.

26. Stephen Lyman LAST TOUCH OF LIGHT   $595.00

There are times when you just want to be transported to some tranquil spot in the American wilderness ā€” let Lyman's image be the catalyst for the journey of the imagination. "Last Touch of Light" allows you a grand view of one of our most glorious national parks, Yosemite. Here the Half Dome shimmers in the fading light, above the dark silent woods.

27. Stephen Lyman THE LONG AUTUMN   $270.00

It is images like "The Long Autumn" that helped establish Stephen's incredible popularity in the world of limited edition fine art prints. Here, wildlife and wilderness are sewn into a seamless landscape, the bighorn sheep blending almost imperceptibly among the rocks and grasses in the background. Andrea Lyman notes that while the warm, golden palette was unusual for Steve, it perfectly evokes the sense of a promise fulfilled. "After a summer of plenty," she says, "comes the satisfaction and ease of autumn. The sheep are well-prepared for winter . . . there's still time for them to bask in the sunlight."
