The Art of Morgan Weistling

About   Morgan Weistling

"There is a story underneath the story of my paintings. I don't hide the process of how I paint. You can see the layers and count the strokes it took to get there.  With some styles of painting, the closer you get to the canvas, the more you will see. With mine, the more you step back, the more detail you will see. That's not easy, which is why it fascinates me."
                                    -Morgan Weistling

Morgan Weistling - The Dance
The Dance

With his masterful use of oils, artist Morgan Weistling brings a scene to life with spectacular lighting, creating a sense of wonder and engaging the viewer's imagination and emotion.  His dreamlike images touch the viewer's heart, using more than sentimentality to engage the viewer. His canvases are filled with brushwork that tell a story beyond the subject matter.  Like a skilled movie director, he manipulates the focus of interest with suggestions and impressions of forms that are barely realized and allow the viewer's imagination to fill in the details. more

Curious Emily

     “I love painting kids because of their unpredictability. The key is to go with the reality they create in a situation and not to worry even if things start getting messy,” advises Morgan Weistling. “'Curious Emily' may not have been the initial concept of the piece, but a child’s curiosity is a powerful thing. My intention was to have the young girl interact with a bowl of peaches. Instead, she found some of the set dressing items I had placed around her far more fascinating. By following her lead, I ended up with a better painting.”

Lakota Hunters

An archer himself, Weistling has created a pair of figures that feel as if they are about to jump out the painting itself. Of special note to collectors: this extraordinary, yet uncommon, Morgan Weistling image has been released as an edition of only 45!

The Country Doctor

Atomizer in hand, this dedicated, selfless and (as indicated by the overreaction to the unfamiliar on this young boy’s face) perhaps slightly misunderstood physician practices his healing ways in this frontier home. Weistling’s tribute to country doctors and the role they played in the development of early American tradition was awarded the Patron’s Choice Award for best painting at the 2013 Masters of the American West.

Laundry Girl

“I’ve become extra careful to make sure every painting is worthy of attention,” says Morgan Weistling. Even when it comes to one of his SmallWorks such as "Laundry Girl," the hallmarks of what makes owning a Weistling so special are abundantly apparent – a captivating figure from a distant yet familiar time and place is rendered so tenderly and flawlessly it is as if she surely must exist.

Morgan Weistling - End of Harvest

End of Harvest

“Anyone who has grown up around farms knows well the end of harvest ritual of going through the fields looking for the leftover crops that were passed over or missed on the actual reaping,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “Kids from nearby farms and homes would be invited to follow the wagon to help out.”

The lively composition in this sunlit landscape starts your eye with the young girl’s face in the lower right, an autumn nymph whose joy in the late-harvest work party spreads throughout the painting. It’s even an olfactory feast for the farmer’s dog that lopes along, grateful for the rich unearthed scents and the children’s company as they make a game of gathering the final squash and pumpkin before winter yields a killing frost. All three of Artist Morgan Weistling’s much-in-demand paintings sold at the 2012 Prix de West Exhibition and Sale this summer. Join the Weistling collectors by hanging this expression of thanksgiving in your home.

Morgan Weistling - The Chef's Daughter

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Chef's Daughter - Chuck Wagon 1892

“I paint the American spirit: people from an era when we had to be strong to survive,” says Morgan Weistling. The advance of the American frontier, from the Alleghenies to the Pacific, forged not only the geographical boundaries of this country but our national character as well. “Life was played out at the cutting edge of civilization. For all the trials they had to endure, daily moments and memories of family life on the frontier are not so distant that they do not resonate with and inspire us today.”

The night’s camp site has been selected and work has begun on the evening’s meal. The chuck wagon represented to the cowboy not only an island of civilization out on the range but also home for The Chef’s Daughter. This state of the art kitchen may not come equipped with a sub-zero refrigerator but it could travel hundreds of miles through any weather. As rough and tumble as any day moving cattle could have been, even the most ornery of ranch hands would have found a soft spot in his soul when he came into camp and encountered Cookie’s young daughter after a hard day’s ride.

Cowboy etiquette finds new inspiration in this gorgeous painting by two-time Prix De West winner Morgan Weistling. This Fine Art Edition Gilcèe Canvas captures all of the vibrancy and delicate detail of the artist’s original painting. This is the ideal
piece of art for enhancing the ambiance of your dining room with the flavor of old west cooking.

Morgan Weistling - The Fishing Hole

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Fishing Hole

A superb colorist, artist Morgan Weistling brings this scene to life with spectacular lighting, creating a sense of wonder and engaging the viewer’s imagination and emotion. Like a skilled movie director, he manipulates the focus of interest with suggestions and impressions of forms that are barely realized and allow the viewer’s imagination to fill in the details.

The Fishing Hole is a unique, personal homage to brotherly love and childhood magic. “I was originally going to title this painting Brothers,” explains artist Morgan Weistling. “It is as much about the joy of fishing as it is about the bonding experience that fishing allows. I painted it in memory of my older brother, Steve. I have fond memories of him teaching me all of the things he knew about fishing and camping. I painted the older brother with his hand on the younger boy’s shoulder representing that protection that I always felt when I was with Steve. It was pretty handy having a brother that was 6' 4".

“I painted that moment when a fish has just taken its first bite, the line gives that pull and the excitement jumps into your throat. The experienced older brother is a little more collected and amused with his brother’s reaction. When I was this age I remember letting out quite a few whoops of joy while out in our dingy but my big brother was always there to make sure the fish made it into the boat.”

Apples and Oranges

“You’re comparing apples to oranges!” or so the argument will often go. Does the same apply to the company of young girls and boys? Two-time Prix De West winner and five-time David P. Usher Patron’s Choice award winner Morgan Weistling certainly gives us a stunning piece of art to ponder the question over.

Water To Wine

“My main focus was to make the viewer feel like an eyewitness to the biblical account of Christ's first miracle,” says artist Morgan Weistling, “changing water to wine at the wedding feast of Cana. To convey the sense of awe one would feel, I depicted the astonished face of the servant as he pours the water and watches as it is transformed into wine.”

Our Refuge and Strength

“This painting depicts one of my favorite stories from the life of Christ,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “I remember reading about Jesus walking on water and noting that he was out in the middle of a lake! This had a profound effect on me.

“In Our Refuge and Our Strength I wanted to show Peter’s point of view, as though the viewer were struggling in the water alongside him. And, like Peter, we come to the realization that Christ is there to save us, as suggested by the light breaking through the turbulent clouds.”

Alice

With his masterful use of oils, Morgan Weistling brings this simple scene to life. Spectacular lighting combined with gentle brushworks and impressions create this dreamlike image. A period piece with a modern-day flair, Alice is as timeless a work as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865. “I tried to capture the fun and imaginative world of children and their pets,” says Weistling. “This young girl and her furry friend were easy inspiration to spur this painting on.”

Straw Hat

“Emily is a young girl that brings this same talent to modeling sessions for my paintings. (She appears in some of my most popular paintings, "Apple Girl," "Joy" and "Strawberry Jam.") "Straw Hat" is simply one of those special combinations of expression, mood and lighting that present themselves when Emily takes on a character.”

Morgan Weistling - Flour Child

Flour Child

“When I first get an idea for a painting, I usually know it’s worth pursuing if the title comes with it quickly. I find endless fascination with the world that children create in their imaginations. When I set little Madison on the floor to explore the world of baking and told her she could play with the flour, I knew magic would happen. Of course, I will be finding flour residue in my studio for years to come. It was an epic mess but it brought me great inspiration”.

Morgan Weistling - Siennas's Tea

click on the image to enlarge

 

Sienna's Tea

“This painting of my 4-year-old daughter was inspired by a tea set that her grandmother gave her,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “The imagination of children continues to be a wonder for me to paint because they so easily drift into a make-believe world. She had little conversations with her stuffed friends while serving them and seemed unaware of my studying the whole event. It was a very successful party.”

Morgan’s popularity continues to soar among collectors and the press. In the past 18 months his work has been featured in Art of the West, Western Art Collector, Western Art and Architecture, International Artist Magazine and American Artist. In February 2011, he won the Patron’s Choice Award at the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale for the fifth time.

The Dance

Morgan’s daughter, Brittany, posed for this painting when she was five years old. “Looking back on this painting 10 years later, I can still feel the music and remember the inspiration that stirred this idea,” says Morgan Weistling. “Brittany and I were visiting a Cowboy Poetry and Music festival and at one point she began to dance to some musicians much like in the painting. I later re-created that scene in my studio. I will always cherish the memories of Brittany and I dancing together as the musicians played for us.”

Morgan Weistling - Reflection of God

Reflection of God

“Colossians 1:15-20 speaks of Christ’s supremacy and of his being the image of the invisible God. Studying this passage brought the scene of Jesus’ baptism to my mind,” says artist Morgan Weistling.

“I chose to depict a quiet moment while Jesus was in the Jordan River to be baptized by John. I wanted to focus on Christ alone, looking to his Father in heaven, as he fulfilled God’s promise to send a Savior. His reflection in the water extends forward, reaching out to us, the viewers, as does Christ himself with his immeasurable gift of salvation. My prayer is that this painting will not only proclaim the deity of Christ but will encourage the viewer to answer the question that Jesus asks all of us: ‘Who do you say I am?’ (Matt. 16:15).”

Morgan Weistling - Thy Will Be Done

Thy Will be Done

“This painting is a portrait of prayer,” says artist Morgan Weistling, “and its title comes from that moment in the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt 26:39), hours before his crucifixion.  “I was inspired to paint this by the number of times the Bible refers to Christ going off alone to pray to his Father, for example in Luke 5:16: ‘But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.’ I wanted the viewer to imagine how Jesus would look if you were to come upon him in a private moment of prayer. The painting emphasizes his strong carpenter’s hands, clasped in prayer, representing his communion with the Father. As I painted it I also thought about the importance of praying not only in times of need but often, and thoughtfully, just as Christ did.”

Morgan Weistling - The Promise

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Promise

The disciples Matthew (Chapter 9) and Mark (Chapter 5) both have accounts of Jarius, leader of a synagogue, who pleaded with Jesus to heal his dying daughter. Jesus agreed to see her but before they reached the house, they received word that the girl had died. Jesus told her father not to be afraid, but to believe. When they reached the house, Jesus asked everyone to leave except His disciples Peter, James and John and the child's parents. Then He took the girl's hand and commanded her to get up. The 12-year-old girl rose and walked around the room. Everyone was astonished, but Jesus told them to give her something to eat and not to tell anyone. "I chose to depict that moment when the little girl had been given her life back by Jesus,” says the artist. “I imagined the closeness she must have felt for Him. This painting illustrates a real event in time, and it is also symbolic of the life Jesus offers everyone. As a Christian, it is easy to understand the girl’s gratitude because we have all been given life. I am reminded of Jesus' offer to all in John, Chapter 11: 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?' ”

Morgan Weistling - The Campers

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Campers

Artist Morgan Weistling’s penchant for extensive historical research is the collector’s windfall and "The Campers" provides a fascinating glimpse into how this modern master comes upon inspiration. “Often when I am researching for a big painting I find other ideas emerge,” says Weistling. “While working on my painting 'Oregon Trail Family, 1848,' I was inspired to paint this other idea focusing on the simple tents the frontier settlers often used. Set in the late 1800s, these two little pioneers have made themselves at home in their temporary shelter. As the sun is setting and it gets darker, the candle is lit and the beans are served. Cherished items brought on the adventure lay strewn on the quilt with the carefree abandon of childhood.”

Joy

A figure painting without mood is just another picture of a person. There is no confusion about which we’re seeing here. With Joy, Morgan Weistling has created a fine art gem. The atmosphere is electric. The child simply radiates innocent delight. Morgan, with as few brushstrokes as possible, has us embraced by the inner light of childhood conjuring details, background and relationships from our own lives to create a canvas far greater in size than the dimensions of this wondrous SmallWork edition.

“We can only see what the light reveals to us,” says artist Morgan. “And, I’m all about capturing light.”

Morgan Weistling - The Artist - Portrait of a young girl artist

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Artist

The idea for this painting came very naturally. My daughter, Brittany, is following in her parents footsteps and is quite the artist at 14. (Morgan’s wife, Jo Ann, paints under the name J. Peralta).

She has posed for me many times, notably in
The Dance.  Here, she is a girl set with kitchen tasks but has set them aside to partake in her first love, painting. Although she should be peeling those potatoes, she would rather set up items from her mother's 1890s country kitchen and paint a still life in watercolor.  Behind her on the cabinet, other paintings are pinned.  I tried to portray that intensity of young inspiration to be an artist.  It's an unstoppable force when given the right encouragement.

Morgan Weistling - Country Schoolhouse - 1879

Country Schoolhouse, 1879

“The one-room schoolhouse goes back to the founding of our great country,” says artist Morgan Weistling. “It evolved through the decades but the general idea remained the same. I painted the time period that I know and love best, the post Civil War era. I decided to place the teacher as the focal point, a tribute to all the dedicated teachers that help build this nation. 

“This is a rural country schoolhouse and I wanted to portray a class that was a little more primitive. They were still using individual chalk boards instead of pen and paper (because of the cost of paper then). No fancy bows and frilly dresses for these kids. I imagined these children as coming from a farming community as well as tradesmen’s homes".

Tangerine

It's that time of year when the fruit laden trees are almost ready to be picked. This young lass has tested several of the fruit from the trees to find that one, perfect tangerine. Her eyes tell you that the smell alone indicates that this is going to be one of the best. And since it's the first one of the year, it floods the palate with memories of that sweetness.

Weistling Morgan - Bowl of Oats

click on the image to enlarge

Bowl of Oats

“There are two different stories to tell about Bowl of Oats. The first is that even though I may not paint as many paintings of boys as I do girls, most of my paintings of children come about in the same fashion. In this case, I put a cup of milk and a bowl of oatmeal out in front of a little boy who is about a year and half old. As a parent myself, I have a pretty good idea of what is going to happen. How that comes about is entirely up to the child. For me, what they do is simply a matter of nature. Second, one of the things that I have become highly aware of as an artist is how completely natural these children are about their hands and what great poses you end up with as a result. Adults can be downright weird about them. If I asked you to pose for me right now, where your hands ended up and how you positioned them would be a very self-conscious and unnatural process. Kid’s hands end up exactly where they should be, even when they are not covered in oatmeal.”

A Helping Hand

I learned a lot about spinning wheels while painting this piece and how different threads and yarns were spun from fleece a century ago by pioneer women. It is a very quiet, serene and meditative art form that I witnessed as my model worked in my studio for hours as I painted. This is also the perfect backdrop for a two year old to wreak havoc and I am experiencing this part firt hand in my studio every day with our child. One can imagine this mother’s reaction when she soon turns to see why her girl is being so quiet!

Morgan Weistling - Kissing the Face of God

Kissing the Face of God

This painting was inspired by the phrase ‘kissing the face of God,’ which I heard in a song many years ago,” said the artist. “I immediately thought of a composition with Mary and baby Jesus and how Mary had the privilege to hold God in the flesh in her arms. She cuddled and kissed him just as all mothers do with their babies. God chose to send his Son into this world in this amazing way—in pure humility.”

Morgan Weistling - Oregon Trail Family, 1848

Oregon Trail Family, 1848

“I have been fascinated with stories about the Oregon Trail and Santa Fe Trail since I was a child,” says Morgan Weistling. “My grandmother used to tell me how my ancestors had travelled by covered wagon to their new home in the West. She would show me little mementos that had been handed down from that time. When I decided to finally depict a scene from this historic event, I dived into piles of research that are available. Many of the women along the trail kept diaries that give us daily accounts of their journey.  I chose to capture what they called ‘The favorite time of the day.’ After walking for eight hours, toiling with oxen and any number of problems, they would set up for the night and rest. A campfire and some music went a long way toward spreading some peace at the end of a very hard day.

Morgan Weistling - The Gardener

click on the image to enlarge

 

The Gardener

Morgan Weistling’s contemporary impressionism describes the innocence and wonder of a timeless America, as well as the beauty of everyday moments. Weistling is inspired by country life and particularly the lives of children with their irrepressible urge to explore. Morgan says of his model “Her name is Jessica and I discovered her while she attended a Christmas play. As soon as I saw her, painting ideas began to come to me. I imagined her coming in from her grandmother’s garden with her newly picked prizes". The Gardener portrays the magical innocence of a darling garden helper, in her straw hat and crisp white apron, from a not-too-distant rural American past. She holds her beets tentatively, perhaps because of her white apron! Who wouldn’t want this little gardener’s help?

Morgan Weistling - Indian Stories

Indian Stories

In June, to the surprise of absolutely no one with their finger on the pulse of the art world, Morgan Weistling’s "Indian Stories" was announced as the winner of the 2008 Prix de West Purchase Award. About the painting Weistling said,“I wanted to capture the tradition of storytelling on canvas and worked on the idea for several years. The painting began with the idea of a grandfather telling stories of his adventures on the Oregon Trail. His grandchildren become completely absorbed by his tale of how he was befriended by the Blackfoot Indians and their gift of the pipe. While we can imagine that this is not the first time their grandmother has heard the story, her delight is in the children’s reactions.”

Strawberry Jam

"My model, Emily, is a very quiet and neat little girl," says artist Morgan Weistling. "When I first directed her to let some jam drip on her hands and on the table she could barely make herself do it. But after a while, she really got the hang of it. Before we were done, Emily had consumed half the jar."

Feeding the Geese

“Growing up on the farm,  I always loved to feed the animals. This painting brings back childhood memories of my two sisters and I.

“I love to paint geese because their natural design is so decorative. I named each goose as I painted it—I had Daisy, Lobelia, Bungo, Pippin, Eleanor and Hamfast—and had some fun painting Bingo, the lone duck, peering out at the viewer.”

Sisters

Sisters is a warm portrait of the beauty of the sibling relationship, a relationship that will only grow stronger in the face of adversity and with the passage of time.

“The love between these sisters, who are very close in real life, is testimony to the love and caring possible in our families. Many people are fortunate to have their siblings as their best friends.”

The Egg Inspector

"I never cease to be inspired by the wonder and curiosity of children,” says Weistling. “ This little farm girl loves to spend time with her chickens and found her way into the coop one day. This serene moment I painted changed rapidly after she decided to stick her thumbs into the eggs to see what would happen. It got pretty messy."

The Quilting Bee, 19th Century Americana

Morgan Weistling’s contemporary impressionism celebrates the wonder of a timeless America, as well as the beauty of everyday moments. His painting, Quilting Bee, 19th Century Americana, was the winner of several awards at the most recent Masters of the American West Art Show and Sale, where it sold for over $160,000.

"I’ve thought about this painting for at least 15 years. It all began when my mother showed me a quilt her grandmother had made as a little girl in the late 1800s. I was amazed by its detail and beauty. I began to research quilt-making and discovered the wonderful American tradition of quilting bees, and I knew I had my painting. "

"At a quilting bee, women would have family and neighbors gather to finish a quilt. It was a real community event. Often a quilt was made to mark a special occasion, such as a wedding or an upcoming journey. The older, more experienced women would do most of the quilt work, but as in my painting, the less experienced would learn the craft alongside the veterans. The quilt in this painting is the actual quilt my great-grandmother made as a little girl, which made the creative process all the more personal for me.”

Spilled Milk

'' In the quiet light of morning, a round-cheeked toddler stands in her own little corner, out of the way of busy adults. She tilts a pitcher of milk carefully, watching closely as every drop splashes onto the floor of the kitchen. The little milkmaid in the cranberry colored dress has no motivation but curiosity and her actions stir within all of us a remembrance of our own innocence.''

Apple Girl

'Artist Morgan Weistling’s portraits of young children are among his most popular paintings with collectors. This delicate image of a girl amid a bounty of fall apples, laced with ruby, gold and grey tones, speaks volumes on the inner life of children. The darling kitchen helper, in her bonnet and smock, exudes the wonder of childhood innocence and grace. Just as we all recognize youth’s fleeting nature, all the more fleeting are the moments such as this.

Morgan Weistling - Dreams in Gold

Dreams in Gold

With his masterful use of oils, artist Morgan Weistling brings a scene to life and engages our imagination and emotion. "Patterns and shapes, arranged in a pleasing design, are the basis for 'Dreams in Gold,'" says Weistling. "I love taking a simple story of a girl who has fallen asleep after reading in bed, and breaking it down to an abstract design. Painting her from above, everything looked new to me. Shapes flattened out and felt dreamlike and floating. This perspective suspended her in a state of weightlessness. Surrounding her in yellows and warm gold colors added to the peacefulness of her mood."

Serenity

"There are paintings that we, as artists, carry in our heads for years before they materialize,” says Morgan Weistling. "'Serenity' is one of them." An artist not only visualizes a painting through its final stroke, but the entire presentation of the work to its completed state of being framed and hung on the wall.

Pocket Watch

.“This painting was originally going to be titled Tea for Grandpa and my daughter Brittany was suppose to be handing her Grandpa a cup of tea. Well, Grandpa had a shiny pocket watch Brittany had never seen one before. During a break in the studio, this scene took place and it rang with the sweet innocence of a curious child. I like to strive for truthfulness such as this in my paintings. That's when I connect to the painting and my hope is that it will reach the viewer, too.”

Trusted Friends

“In my search for interesting people to paint, I came to know this gentleman named Mickey Michele,” says Morgan Weistling. “He is a fifth generation Californian whose great, great grandfather was a vaquero and horse trainer in 1890s Los Angeles.The art of horse training has been passed down from generation to generation and he follows in the footsteps of his grandfather. Mickey trains horses for mounted shooting and is an expert in firearms of the old West. I have painted him with his Trusted Friends that have served him so well, and I purposely used a rough textured painting style to convey his personality.”
