March Newsletter 2018


Dear Friends,

We hope this finds you well and that you’re enjoying life to the fullest. It’s so good to stay in contact with all of you throughout the year. We want to thank you for all the photos of your collection pieces hung in your special spots.

Your friendship means a lot to us, and we cherish it. With this thought in mind, we would like to make you aware of a few exciting opportunities in the next few months. This year we have some significant original oil paintings available at auction in Montana and Arizona.

First, we are very humbled to have a feature piece in the 50th anniversary of The Russell Exhibition and Sale of a portrait of Charley Russell titled

“The Vision: Charles Marion Russell” (oil 36 x 48 inches) Lot #158

This is a very special painting for those who love western art, as Charley was the literal pioneer of this genre; it will be auctioned during the Russell Live Auction on Saturday, March 17th.  The Russell offers a well-planned, high quality gathering for all walks of life.  The second climactic piece offered that night depicts a grizzly bear titled

“Working the Claim”(oil 24 x 36 inches) Lot #181.

The third major work is one that portrays bighorn sheep leaving the high country storms in preparation for the fall rutting season and is titled

“Leading the Descent” (oil 30 x 36 inches) Lot #379 at the Scottsdale Art Auction on Saturday, April 7th

We would like to offer an opportunity for our friends to magnify their lives with these works. A recent survey that we conducted about how art enhances our lives led us to the conclusion that “art is an integral part of our daily survival.”   Our goal is simple: we want to make you happy daily! It’s true that the fine arts enhance lives.

We know that you are busy and your time is valuable, so we send this with a “thank you” for taking the time to review this email. We hope you will be very pleased with these new works–and to those of you who will be attending either of these exhibits and auctions, we look forward to seeing you. You’re in for a real treat!


See you down the trail,

Chad and Amy Poppleton
