A letter from Leanin’ Tree Founder Ed Trumble Thank you, my friends, for your interest in the art of the Leanin’ Tree Museum and Sculpture Garden! As I write this on my 93rd birthday, I acknowledge that my physical limitations will unfortunately prevent me from attending “my auction” (as I have come to think of it) in Scottsdale in January 2018. So my gratitude must be expressed by letter rather than in person. Oh, how I wish I could shake your hand, and thank each and every one of you, and share my hope that you are successful with a winning bid for a piece (or pieces!) of the Leanin’ Tree Museum legacy. Western art has been my life’s passion and mission. The roots of my interest in the West were planted early and deep, in a young boy’s fertile imagination, as my family scrabbled for survival on a Depression and drought-battered Nebraska farm. Riding my cow pony Sunny, with ol’ Buster my dog darting to and fro alongside pulled by every elusive scent, we—well, I—dreamt of leading great cattle drives, fightin’ off determined varmints and rustlers, and pushing deep into steep, blue valleys in pursuit of beaver, gold, wealth, fame—the collective dreams of youth. The Good Lord has been gracious in allowing me 93 winters, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t feel those years. After all, it’s not like I’m 92 anymore! My life has been blessed by God and dumb Irish luck. But even the benevolent St. Patrick can’t stop the ceaseless march of time. For several years, a decision has been looming, haunting, inescapable. What to do with my art collection? My dear wife, best friend, confidant and co-curator, Lynn Marie, has traveled this path with me through many exciting and fruitful years, as we built the collection and fulfilled our vision of the museum and sculpture garden, culminating in my 2008 book The Story of Leanin’ Tree. We have shared an unbelievably wonderful journey. It was never my expectation that my family would maintain my art museum indefinitely. They have their own lives to lead, their own dreams to fulfill—plus a great business to run! I have always cared deeply about ensuring that my family can remain dedicated to their proud work of creating and selling Leanin’ Tree’s nationally popular greeting cards. So now the time has come. We all made the emotionally difficult decision to sell the art collection and close the Museum. Because the Museum has been my lifelong project, it was personally important to me to know that my collection would come full circle in the great hall of Scottsdale Art Auction, as my art treasures find their way into the loving care of the next generation of families, collectors and museums. I wish to thank the entire team at Scottsdale Art Auction who have worked tirelessly to produce a stunning auction catalog. My friendship with SAA’s Brad Richardson extends back many decades, and even further back through Brad’s father-inlaw, Troy Murray. Oh, the art stories we could tell! I have known Brad and his partners, Jack Morris and Mike Frost, to be trusted advisors and colleagues through our many years together down the western art trail. For almost five decades it has been an unparalleled honor to have hosted several million visitors to the Leanin’ Tree Museum. I have so many treasured memories standing in my museum—surrounded by visual treasures—sharing stories of the art and artists with pilgrims young and old, all with a golden light in their eyes, awestruck by the allure and accessibility of beautiful art of the American West. I remember a woman from New York, without ever taking her tear-filled eyes off the canvas in front of her, saying to me, “That is the most beautiful painting I have ever seen.” The Leanin’ Tree Museum and Sculpture Garden has brought immeasurable joy, appreciation and awe to those who have had the privilege to experience it in person. The gratitude I feel for those who have loved the art I have loved cannot be expressed. From the depth of my soul, thank you.

Bill Hampton’s Old Gold Tooth became Leanin’ Tree’s first birthday card after Ed Trumble commissioned Western poet S. Omar Barker to compose the following verse to accompany the image: “May neither drought nor rain nor blizzard/Disturb the joy-juice in your gizzard!/And may you camp where wind won’t hit you/Where snakes won’t bite and bears won’t git you/Happy Birthday” Hampton’s humorous and soulful portraits have graced Leanin’ Tree cards ever since.

Mike Scovel’s caricatures of what Ed Trumble calls “ornery, sweet, cantankerous, bashful, careworn cowboys” have appeared on Leanin’ Tree cards for over twentyfive years. Despite the whimsicality of some of his his subject matter, Scovel is an accomplished artist who also sculpts and paints. Along with Bonnie Shields and Boots Reynolds, Mike Scovel formed Cowboy Cartoonists International in 1992. CCI now has twenty members and the organization mounts several group exhibits every year.

Before he became an artist, Lloyd Mitchell was a ranch hand and a bit player in Hollywood Westerns. After the Second World War, Mitchell decided to try his hand at art and studied in Los Angeles. “The fastest brush in the West,” Mitchell’s sense of humor pervades his “fine art cartoons,” especially his “skinny saloons” precariously perched and generally on the verge of collapse as they suffer one predicament after another.

California native Bill Bender saw some of the last of the cowboy idyll working with a pack outfit in Kernville in the 1930’s where, as he put it, “there were as many horses as there were cars.” The landscape made a painter of Bill Bender. He fell under the desert spell of James Swinnerton but soon developed his own style, soft, filled with light, and dappled with shadow.

Ray Swanson was born in rural South Dakota and educated in a one-room schoolhouse. After his father passed away, the family moved to California where Swanson studied drafting and aeronautical engineering and became a civil engineer. When he inherited a box of paints from his grandfather, Swanson began to paint farm subjects as a hobby. But the budding artist fell for the Native Americans of Arizona: the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni, and Apache, and came to the happy conclusion that their way of life would make an excellent subject for a professional painter.

Born in 1919 in the Texas Panhandle, Bill Chappell knew the hardships of the hardscrabble life of the ranch hand, living with his parents in a dirt dugout for a time. But even as a boy, Chappell’s hands turned to art. He painted, sculpted, worked leather, wood, and silver. After serving in World War II, Chappell opened a saddle shop and moved to Colorado. In 1965, he made art his full-time pursuit.

Compelled by the history of the fur trade and pioneers, Kerswill made this early era the principal subject of his art.

William Moyers was an early member of the Cowboy Artists of America, becoming a member in 1968. Born in Georgia in 1916, at the age of fourteen he went to Colorado, learned to be a cowboy, and paid his way through art school in California on the proceeds of his prowess. Moyers worked for Walt Disney before joining the army and moving to New York, where his career as an illustrator took off. In 1962, Moyers and his family moved to Albuquerque, where he exchanged illustration for fine art. Moyers once observed that he is drawn to the working cowboy as a subject because he is “a harmonious outgrowth of the environment. He accepts the action, weather, loneliness and responsibilities as normal existence.”

Leanin’ Tree published over 100 of Howard Fogg’s singular images of American railroad history. Of Fogg, Ed Trumble says, ”In some important respects, Howard resembled another great American artist, Charles M. Russell. For just as Russell was compelled to paint and record every detail of his disappearing West, so Howard dedicated his life to preserving the railroading saga of North America. I think that history will see Howard Fogg, like Russell, as a unique artist of his own era, who was destined to record for all time a special part of America.”

After purchasing Shorty Shope’s painting The Coming Home Song at a show, Ed Trumble teased that he didn’t like one of the pack horse’s legs. “Harry Jackson,” Trumble writes, “was also at the show that night, and he invited Shorty and me to an early viewing of a… documentary film about Jackson that John Wayne had narrated… When the four of us stopped to view The Coming Home Song, Shorty commented, “Mr. Wayne, the buyer for this painting doesn’t like the looks of this leg…” [Wayne] squinting at the painting, barked, “Aw, tell him to go to hell!” Shorty damn near fainted and pointing to me, he blurted, “Mr. Trumble is the buyer!”

George Dick was an outdoorsman. Peggy and Harold Samuels’s compendium, Contemporary Western Artists, states that Dick joined the U. S. Wildlife Service, traveled the West with a falcon named Margaret, and, after being wounded in World War II, recuperated in a lean-to in Jackson, regaining his strength by eating fish he caught. Dick studied with Kenneth Adams and Randall Davey and created his own approach to Western and wildlife painting. As he observed, “Most often I eliminate or subdue the background. To me, this adds to the feeling of the unknown, the vastness and the ‘foreverness’ of nature.”

Jack Lee McLean painted the Canadian and American West for over fifty years. As his family, in a website devoted to his work, writes, he “invites you into his paintings to become part of the West—taking a journey through his true-to-life landscapes with the cowboy, the Indian, the packer, and his trademark, the work horse.” McLean was an avid hiker and skier and often said that the Rockies were his real studio.

Cartoonist Boots Reynolds paints cowboy life where, as Ed Trumble calls it, that life is “over the edge of good taste and good sense.” Eatin’ Out is pure satire, but Poetry in Motion shows that Reynolds knows his Western Art.

A master of false modesty, as a glance at The Eternal Sitter will attest, Arlene Hooker Fay—according to Ed Trumble—once asked, “What is an artist? Am I one, or am I still practicing to be one? My creative process is to get the right color on the right number and stay inside the lines!”

Often covered in reflective surfaces so that they simultaneously mirror and blend in with the natural world. Doug Coffin’s majestic, modernist totem poles essentialize traditional forms as geometric abstractions, merging the ancient and modern worlds. This in turn, may well reflect his upbringing as a member of the Potawatomi nation in a world that revolves several removes from Potawotomi tradition.

Before turning to sculpture, Martha Pettigrew was a scientific illustrator for the Nebraska State Museum. These illustrations sparked an interest in the American Southwest—and in sculpture. Pettigrew trained with Fritz White but her work is also inspired by Francisco Zuniga, Henry Moore, and others. Of her interest in Native American subjects, Pettigrew has said, “Women are the cultural bearer of all societies, and their everyday tasks have become an endless source of inspiration for my work.” Northern Exposure, on the other hand, depicts the “ecology of the beaver pond:” beaver dams stream, pond attracts frog and fish, fish and frog attract bear, bear scraps attract raven.”

229 Bill Hughes 1932-1992 Westward, The Promise Oil on canvas 36 x 48 inches Signed lower right and dated 85 Estimate: $4,000 - 6,000 Bill Hughes’s monumental Western landscapes evoke a feeling as much as they describe a place. Working in the Hudson River School tradition as it was transplanted to and transformed by the vistas of the American West— consider Albert Bierstadt, Frederic Church, Thomas Moran, and Thomas Hill, for example—Hughes finds the spirituality in his highly detailed, realistic depictions of places that are, often in large measure, imaginative. Humans and animals moving through and at one with panoramas of bold light splashing on and edging even bolder colors wrought into trees, mountains, rocks, water—these, it seems, constituted Bill Hughes’s artistic aims.

Bill Freeman came from an artistic family, but his path led him to the Forest Service, where he fought fires and did field research. But when his sketches began to appear in the publications of the Arizona Fish and Game Department, he circled back to art and took the wildlife and landscape of the West as his inspiration and subject.

Indian artifacts he found beside the Little Miami River in Ohio kindled Fritz White’s interest in the traditions and beliefs of Native Americans. White maintained that this experience allowed him to feel the presence of the past—the saga of the American Indian. As a consequence he studied voraciously and began to sculpt, first in marble, then in bronze. The Leanin’ Tree example of Hunter in the Night Sky (CAA Gold Medal, 1999) has a unique black marble base, fashioned by the artist, with the seven stars of the Big Dipper inset in bronze.

Beginning his career as a newspaper cartoonist working with James Swinnerton, Clyde Forsythe brushed brushes with many of the greatest American artists in the Western deserts he loved. He painted with Maynard Dixon, hobnobbed with Russell and Borein and introduced Norman Rockwell to the Saturday Evening Post. Paintings like Agatha’s Needle, show traces of an Art Deco graphic sensibility in their rounded shapes and surprising contrasts in color. S C O T T S D A L E A RT A U C T I O N

What drove him to paint was the need to communicate his visceral, physical reaction to color in nature. Heavily influenced by Picasso, and working in—and then beyond—the tradition of Fechin and Gaspard, his paintings, whether they are of aspens, snowbanks, or waves, burrow directly and deeply into the viewer’s emotional memory.
