More Info Art

Ron Parker, a relatively new artist in the field of wildlife painting is a native of Vancouver, British Columbia, who lives in Wase, in the Rocky Mountain trench on a waterfowl flyway. The location is perfect for an artist whose watercolors draw strength from a day to day knowledge of the flora and fauna of the region.

As a child he showed above normal talent in art, he later tried his hand at commercial art, architecture and then for a time worked in track and field administration and ended up being the 1966 Canadian Decathlon Champion.

Ron Parker, now a listed Canadian artist is known for his many popular limited edition prints, following the footsteps of other great wildlife painters: Robert Bateman Glen Loates, Maass and Maynard Reece.

This painting titled "Raiding The Cache" is all about the Douglas squirrel, or chickaree as it is often called, a close relative of the red squirrel and differs only in color from the more common species with a yellowish rather than white underside and an olive colored back.

In Parker's words: "Hoarders by nature, chickarees store and eat quantities of seeds of trees, mushrooms and berries. One of these lively small squirrels in a hiking area near Vancouver took peanuts from my hand. He would take one nut, leave and return in a minute until he had taken all the peanuts I had. When he returned again, I showed him my empty hand. He sniffed each finger in turn and then bit my thumb."
- Ron Parker
