An inquisitive calf from a ranch in southern Colorado by artist Heather Foster. "I think animals are often like humans in the way the young are willing to make eye contact and blatantly stare at a person," says Heather. "That curiosity is what I wanted to convey with this portrait. I think the composition reflects that feeling as well. It seems the viewer was taking in the landscape and the calf entered into view and stuck his nose in to ask what the viewer is doing. This is balanced, compositionally, with a bold red underpainting to his left."

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Artist Heather Foster captures an enduring image of the West. She paints the dramatic landscapes and stalwart animals she encounters on her adventures to ranches and rodeos. Heather says she has always known she wanted to be an artist. As a child, she spent her weekends and summers riding the bus into Philadelphia to attend art classes at Philadelphia College of Art, Moore College of Art, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Over the years, she's moved around the country quite a bit and done many jobs - everything from driving a pedicab (a giant tricycle that transports passengers) to art restoration and conservation (for one project, she unstretched and then restretched a $17 million painting that would not fit through the door of the buyer's house). The one constant though, no matter where she lived or what side jobs she held, she always made space and time to paint. Today, she works from a home studio in Santa Fe, painting from thousands of reference photographs she shoots on her travels. Her artwork has been featured in the magazines Southwest Art, American Art Collector, and Western Art Collector, and published in the books Art Journey New Mexico and The Book of the Horse.
