This scene is from an original painting by Rosemary called "Sitting Pretty". Rosemary Millette is a renowned wildlife artist and has been developing and honing her skills ever since she was young. She has formal education and has been a commercial artist because of her hard work and self-discipline. Whether painting pheasants, deer, or elk her expertise and passion is evident in her paintings. The reason she is so famous is because of the way she can realistically portray each animals physical structure and tone. It is not only her realism, but the way she uses light, color, composition, and scenery to compliment the typical qualities of the animal.
This South Dakota artist is very proud of her association with organizations and groups that work to preserve and protect wildlife and the environment. She has worked closely with Pheasants Forever, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, and the Minnesota Deer Hunter’s Association.
*Giclee – An art curator term which denotes the highest quality and special purpose printing process. The process is unlike ordinary printers. The pigments, not inks, are richer and produce a print that looks almost like the original painting. Most people have to look several times to see it is only a print. A glaze is optional but we have a light one applied to protect and enhance the print. The original painting has to be scanned with a high resolution scan, often several hundred megabytes in size so that every brush stroke is captured and then reproduced.
