When conditions are daunting, maintaining determination—like the Alaskan timber wolf—is the only option. It's a powerful piece that we are proud to feature at World-Wide-Art.com.

Well-known art gallery and custom conservation framing company World Wide Art, Inc. now has available "Silent Snows," a piece by artist Stephen Lyman.
Lyman’s wildlife art transports the viewer in a way that few artists have managed to master. Each painting he does serves as a portal for those who view it, letting them feel as if they were actually trekking and discovering the wilderness for themselves.
The subject of "Silent Snows" is a graceful Alaskan timber wolf pacing through the forest in the dead of winter. Although the snow falling around the animal and the harsh and unforgiving terrain are the only things the viewer can see, the wolf’s attention has been piqued by something in the distance. Whether it's a sound, a faint smell or a glimpse of something outside of the scene, the wolf pauses silently to assess whether an opportunity or a threat is before him.
"To me, this painting communicates a deeper message of perseverance," said David Wilfong, spokesperson for World-Wide-Art.com. "When conditions are daunting, maintaining determination—like the Alaskan timber wolf—is the only option. It's a powerful piece that we are proud to feature at World-Wide-Art.com."
As a natural explorer from a young age, Lyman began his career as a commercial illustrator, and was educated at the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California. Before long, however, he realized the call of the wild was much more powerful than any of the opportunities that beckoned from the world of commercial art.
Lyman soon returned to his true passion of painting and sharing the great outdoors, and has become a favorite of wildlife art fans all over the world. In fact, he was recently named one of the top artists in the country by U.S. Art magazine, and he published a critically acclaimed book in 1995 entitled "Into the Wilderness: An Artist’s Journey."
"We feature a number of works by Stephen Lyman, who has truly set himself apart in terms of wildlife paintings," Wilfong said. "By examining his paintings, it's easy to see how his upbringing and experiences have inspired his work."
Lyman has taken many camping trips to Denali National Park in Alaska, where he observed moments like the one frozen in "Silent Snow." Immersing himself in this vast and beautiful setting has allowed him to develop an intimate knowledge of the caribou, bears and wolves that roam the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest.
In addition to Lyman's "Silent Snows" painting, World-Wide-Art.com offers countless other new releases, limited editions and honored collections by today's top artists. For more information, visit http://www.world-wide-art.com.
