We heard the orcas before we saw them.  On the boat's hydrophone their squeals, squeaks, whistles and sighs sounded as if they were echoing in a cavernous space.  Finally the mist lifted a little and we saw a phalanx of black dorsal fins not too far off - a family pod.  Then the mist swallowed them up again.  Perhaps one of the pods we glimpsed on that magical day of whale watching belonged to a whale that researchers have named Tsitika, an orca matriarch whose life history has given me a glimpse into the orca world.  Tsitika and her family belong to the northern resident population of British Columbia killer whales.  They have a remarkable social system that we are just beginning to understand.  -  Robert Bateman

I like the way the traditional works of man fit with nature, and nature fits with them. The wooden boat is almost as old as mankind. I like the partly deteriorating surface of this boat and the rickety boardwalk.  The gulls also enjoy the place. - Robert Bateman

What if, traveling the arctic, you entered a blowing snow drift and, unknown to you, a polar bear entered from the other side?  By the time you both knew this, it would be too late.  This painting is the way I expressed the discovery. - Robert Bateman
Almost hidden under the rootlets and grasses of a road bank, this cardinal fluffs his plumage for warmth.  The weak winter sun touches the grasses and sets alight the tips of his vermilion feathers. - Robert Bateman
The wolves move as silently as ghosts along the moonlit river.  At times they almost seem transparent.  They seem to almost disappear.  The longer you watch, the more you discover. - Robert Bateman
"Barn Owl in the Churchyard"
Throughout my life, the few times that I have seen a barn owl it has had an almost spiritual, unexpected quality.  In each case, I have been prowling quietly in or near old buildings.  Feeling a bit like an intruder, I have been startled by the silent flapping of the barn owl's wings. - Robert Bateman

Combining two accomplished avocations - the first, always regarding himself as an artist, and the second as a well-trained naturalist - Bateman has become one of the world's, greatest artists depicting the natural world.  A vivid imagination, combined with world travel and exposure along with intensive study in the two fields, culminates in paintings that satisfy his inner quest for truths in both worlds of art and nature.  Bateman's work is refreshing and his concepts unpredictable.  With imagination influenced by any one of the multitude of art periods and styles, plus a deep understanding of the natural world, his artistic statements are strong and stunning.  No soul searching for Bateman.  He has always known he was an artist - just as the natural world piqued his curiosity, formal training followed as a matter of course.  Adopting realism again permitted Bateman to express his deep knowledge and concern for the particularity of nature.  Always an active ecologist, he found it insufficiently fulfilling to portray this in a bold abstract style.  Bateman has always painted with zeal and joy all the great and multitude of images that come to mind.....more (cont. at bottom)
My painting shows the lynx in a late evening's tranquil moment at the entrance to a cave.  It is at peace - lightly dozing prior to its night hunt. - Robert Bateman
The lighting is fundamental to the effect of this painting.  I put almost the entire painting in shadow, with the accents coming from the highlights.  The early morning light is striking across the scene, picking up just a bit of the cliff face and the heads of the two adult loons. - Robert Bateman
Part of my fascination with the jaguar, the largest wild cat of the Americas, stems from my interest in big predators.  But like many large carnivores that live at the peak of their particular food pyramid, the jaguar also stands as a symbol of the disappearing tropical forest.  Its varied diet alone demonstrates the diversity of the habitat it requires, preying as it does on at least sixty different species, including the razor-tusked rainforest pig called the peccary, and the capybara, which as the largest living rodent weighs as much as 132 pounds.  I've never seen a jaguar in the wild - only jaguar footprints in the jungle of Belize.  But that somehow seems appropriate for this swift and solitary hunter.  The jaguar once ranged from the southwestern United States to southern Argentina.  Now, except in the still-vast rainforest of the Amazon basin, jaguars are very rare, their numbers having been drastically reduced by big-game hunters and the vanishing habitat. - Robert Bateman

Here I have shown a Bull Moose about to cross a beaver dam in early winter; the pond has not yet frozen.  Besides portraying a mood of time and place, the interesting challenge, for me, was to show the textures and colors of the water, ice and snow.  They are all H20, yet their physical properties do different things with light. - Robert Bateman

The baby cottontail has left his nest.  He was born about a month ago, blind, pink and thumb-size.  His mother had made a nest of rootlets, grasses and down from her own chest.  By using four to seven materials, when the mother leaves the nest, the baby is perfectly protected and camouflaged. - Robert Bateman

Secretive and solitary, the endangered Bengal tiger still roams Northwest India's spectacular park, Ranthambhore.  While the tiger is not always easy to see in this region of mountainous plateaus and rugged ravines, its presence can be felt: "While exploring the ruins of the Hindu kingdom, we came upon a little lake with a small temple perched perfectly on a peninsula.  We were there at midday, but in my mind's eye, I saw it at dawn, or by moonlight, perhaps twilight.  There could be a tiger, emerging from the shelter of the temple, looking out over the lake. - Robert Bateman

Often, so that they cannot be easily seen, leopards will lower their noses so that they are concealed and the head shape is less obvious.  I have placed the sunlit bare branches of the fig tree in front to help with the hiding.  Of course, my real joy in doing this painting was to show the light glancing across the texture of the rock and to play with the forms and textures and warm colors. These, plus the tree and the leopard, speak to me of the soul of Africa. - Robert Bateman

In this painting I wanted to show the ominous presence of a mature, lone wolf, I wanted to create a mood of seriousness and respect - not threat.  From the artistic point of view, I was intrigued by the challenge of portraying a black animal on an almost black background.  It is something like playing a whole piano composition in half an octave of the bass section. - Robert Bateman

71% of the Earth's surface is submerged underwater, and, for the first time in his distinguished artistic career, Robert Bateman has painted a view of this vast realm.  Ocean Rhapsody, Bateman's first underwater painting, marks not only an artistic milestone but also a significant acquisition opportunity for art collectors.  Bateman, recognized as one of the century's "Champions of Conservation," commemorates the last earth day of the 20th Century with Ocean Rhapsody; a very different world - the world beneath the waves.

With the fall of the Soviet Empire, the realm of the mighty Siberian tiger is gravely threatened.  The great old growth forests of eastern Siberian are being decimated to make quick cash for the collapsed Russian economy.  Of course, entire ecosystems, including large animals like tigers and bears, are in jeopardy.  This young fellow, of the largest tiger subspecies, altaica, found in eastern Siberia and Manchuria, appears unaware of the fate of his race.  After romping around and rolling about, he has dropped onto the soft, white powder for a quick, snowy nap. - Robert Bateman
From the magnificent cedar trees that flourished in the Pacific Northwest the native people created a unique art form. Totem poles celebrated a clan’s heraldry and legends. Carven in their sophisticated designs were spirit and animal motifs. Most of the ancient totem poles were destroyed by warfare or burned by missionaries. Others were carried off by museums or collectors. Ravaged by time and decay, some still remain. In the silence that surrounds them one can feel a stirring of spirits.
I was privileged to visit the best place where these totems of the tribes of the northwest coast of America still stand.  I felt a strong spiritual presence there, one of the most moving experiences of my life.  The visages on the poles face the sea, with their backs to the giant, cathedral-like forest. - Robert Bateman

Running giraffes make elegant rocking strides, which almost appear to be in slow motion. In this picture, I wanted a tapestry or mural look, flattened by a veil of dust. I was partly inspired by the lyrical rock wall paintings of the African bushmen.– Robert Bateman
Explore a lustrous Antarctic landscape that sparkles with the iridescence of opals.  "There have been many magic evenings in my life, but the evening of the iceberg cruise stands out ... The hues of the sky vied with the shadows of the icebergs for a sort of beauty contest of nature ... It was at once glorious and subtle and everchanging as we glided among the gigantic towers of ice, and my mind kept turning to fantastic castles from some childhood fairy tale..." - Robert Bateman
It's a striking study in contrasts - the restless energy of churning, white water and the guiet, contained power of a black bear.
"We saw this bear at fairly close range on the shore of a quiet river. We were in a canoe. He was surrounded by bright green and yellow sunlit foilage. I decided to show him in a simple Rothko-like black rectangle with a narrow band of white water beneath." - Robert Bateman
The largest of all living cats, the Siberian tiger is perilously close to extinction. In addition to losing its habitat, the Siberian tiger is also losing its life to supply an illegal market. If the species is indeed to survive in the wild, the momentum to save the Siberian tiger must prevail.
“There is no land predator to compare with the tiger. The color enhances the charisma of this solitary and secretive animal. Of all the subspecies of tigers, the Siberian is the most powerful. The momentum in this painting is achieved by emphasizing the diagonal, and by fading the legs, belly and tail almost into the white of the snow. The undulating power of the line along the spine to the muzzle is the forward, downward thrust. The thought occurred to me that inevitably, there is a downward momentum to the population of wild tigers worldwide. This is mainly due to the illegal market for tiger parts in China, the results of the deadly myth that these parts have magical, medicinal properties, a dubious homage to the tiger’s powerful charisma."
“However, there is also a momentum of organizations pledged to protect the tiger. It is a desperate battle, and the outcome is very much in doubt. One thing is certain, in a few decades, there will be no more tiger ‘medicine,’ either because the poachers and smugglers will have seen the light or because there are no more tigers in the wild.” - Robert Bateman
This is an unexpected switch on the usual theme of predator vs. prey, a lioness is being shadowed by a group of antelopes.
"It was one of those golden evenings which linger forever in memory. The enchantment was complete when a lioness softly padded past us, followed by a small, anxious group of female lechwe following the lioness in order to keep her in sight." - Robert Bateman
In this exceptional piece, Robert Bateman recalls fond memories of a favorite family pet who used to accompany him on nature walks.
"A dog that is reasonably well trained is a wonderful companion for walking in the country. I can't count the happy hours that Smallwood and I spent exploring the fields and forests near our home or cottage. In this painting I have shown him briefly lying down waiting for me to catch up. I felt that the delicate forms in the little grove of hemlocks made a good counterpoint to the solidity of Smallwood's sphynx-like figure." - Robert Bateman
Because of their remote habitats, a snow leopard sighting in the wild is a thrill few humans will ever achieve. But thanks to the artistry of Robert Bateman, the rest of us can imagine the magic and mystery of such an unlikely encounter.
"A mother and partly grown cub move along a ridge in the Alaskan autumn looking for berries, mice and grubs for the final feeding which is needed for the long hibernation." - Robert Bateman
  Bateman has his own unique style.  It cannot be imitated.  His compositions are unique, and his concepts are always fresh - never repeated.  This artist is a great painter.  There are many who imitate the natural world, but if Bateman had a passion to paint the ballet or nudes, his work would still have the breathtaking beauty of the Bateman style.

Salt Spring Island in British Columbia is Robert Bateman's current home and his paintings of nature have been published by Mill Pond Press since 1978.  His work is the subject of the following books:  The Art of Robert Bateman (Viking Press/Madison, 1981, out of print).  The World of Robert Bateman (Random House/Madison press, 1985), An Artist in Nature (Random House/Madison Press, 1990), Robert Bateman - Natural Worlds (Simon and Schuster Madison Press 1996) and a 3-volume Retrospective, 1978 - 1991, published by Mill Pond Press.  His work is also featured in:  Wildlife Painting - Techniques of Modern Masters, Vols. I and II.  Bateman is the recipient of many prestigious honors and awards. 
Bob has dedicated his life to preserving the diversity of the natural world and says, "Variety is not just the spice of life, it is the essence of life."

I do not mean this to be a frightening picture.  The wolves, which normally avoid eye contact, are staring right at you.  Although they sense your presence, they can't quite make you out.  They are alert and interested, but not about to attack.  They are equal to you, the viewer; they are on the same level.  The feeling of slight tension and respect between you and them is mutual.  You are in their domain.  Now that they know about you they will melt away into the gloom. - Robert Bateman

“It is said that the polar bear is the new ‘canary in the coal mine.’ The signals of climate change are numerous and seem to be piling up day by day – disrupted weather patterns, more bad storms and deterioration of coral reefs, to name a few. Numbers of examples of global warming are making the news, such as retreating of glaciers. It is the Polar Regions that are the most vulnerable to the warming, and so are early warning signs as to what is to come. Perma frost is no longer ‘perma.’ More southern plants and insects and birds are appearing in the Arctic for the first time. But the most powerful symbol of what is happening to the climate of the planet is the plight of the polar bear.
“In a real sense, polar bears are marine mammals. They live by the sea, their primary food source is the sea, and they are great swimmers. Seals are their staff of life, but bears are not aquatic mammals like seals. They could not dream of chasing down a seal in the water. They must approach from a solid footing, almost always sea ice. Seals obviously come up through holes in the ice to breathe or climb out to sleep or ‘sunbathe.’ The bear often approaches from a long distance with great care and stealth, blending in with the whitish sea ice. However, this sea ice is now disappearing and with it the hunting ground for the bears. Scattered, fragmented pans of ice are still all right for seals to rest on, but very difficult for the polar bear’s stalking strategy.
“As a result, the bears are becoming thinner and breeding success is falling. They are now being seen further and further away from their old hunting grounds. The impending doom for polar bear populations is a warning that we must face the inconvenient truth and move away from dependence on fossil fuels.” – Robert Bateman

About Robert Bateman

No other artist has done more to heighten environmental awareness
than Robert Bateman, who has dedicated his life and his
work to celebrating and preserving the diversity of the natural
world. The elegant simplicity of Bateman’s compositions reveals
the delicate complexity of nature. Over the past four decades, he
has continued to present new and compelling moments that eloquently
speak to that one universal truth – we are all interconnected
by virtue of this planet that we share.
Recognized by his peers as one of the most influential wildlife
painters of all time, and arguably the world’s most famous living
artist, Robert Bateman is the distinguished recipient of
countless honors and awards including ten honorary doctorates.
The National Audubon Society hailed him as one of the 20th
Century’s “100 Champions of Conservation.” He was named an
officer of the Order of Canada, and three schools have been
named for him. Collectors and famous museums alike prize
his art. His exhibition at the Smithsonian Institution in
Washington, D.C. set attendance records, just as books of his art
set publishing records. His held-over exhibition at The
McMichael Canadian Art Collection enjoyed record attendance
before beginning its U.S. tour. Three museums are currently
building permanent Bateman exhibits. Together with Mill Pond
Press, Bateman has used his artwork and limited edition prints
to advance conservation causes to an extent that few have
achieved, donating more than $30 million dollars. Bateman’s art
remains timeless, his message timely, as seen in this poignant
work.
The Chance to Act Won’t Come Again

Robert Bateman generously contributed his original painting,
Global Warning, to benefit the Natural World Museum’s programs
on climate change. The Natural World Museum (NWM) is
a mobile and global cultural institution – a “museum without
walls” – that operates in partnership with the United Nations
Environment Programme (UNEP) through the Art for the
Environment initiative. NWM serves as a global prototype for
cultural institutions to demonstrate that combining the universal
language of art and the environment is a powerful force for positive
social change. In an ongoing partnership with NWM, The
Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation acquired the painting to
further their education and outreach efforts related to climate
change and biodiversity.
Global Warning serves as a powerful symbol for what is happening
to the environment and that we own the power to bring
about change. Individually we can act responsibly to lessen our
carbon footprints. Together, the strength of our collective will is
a force to be reckoned with. We must align ourselves now – as
individuals, as communities and as nations – and demand that
our leaders act to safeguard our environment. To promote this
effort, a Global Warning program to benefit conservation will be
announced. Watch for upcoming details to learn how you can
become involved!

As I write this, I am gazing out the studio window, looking at the view in the late afternoon light. I am listening to J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations transcribed from the original piano for chamber orchestra. I am thinking about how lucky I am...lucky to have Birgit and the other people around me...to have my daughter Sarah, her husband Rob, and our two granddaughters living over the hill about 10 minutes away. I am also very lucky to be living in a very charming natural setting. The mountain in my view is called Mount Maxwell, not very high (just under 2,000 feet) as mountains go, however, because of its steepness, it does have certain topographic distinction. It is the subject of this painting, which was originally done for the jacket of my book, Thinking Like a Mountain.

The title is based on some words of Aldo Leopold, the early 20th century's Henry David Thoreau. He said that we should be thinking like a mountain with a sense of permanence and a long view. I see the mountain as a metaphor for our place in history at the beginning of the 21st century. We are at a peak of human power, wealth and information. We can see all the periods of history, all cultures and all corners of this planet, yet our view seems to have the perspective of the insides of our wallets. From our metaphoric mountaintop, we need to look behind at our wonderful natural and human heritage, and cherish and protect the abundant values to be found there. We need to look out to the sides and see other parts of the world that need our help, but that can also give us good ideas to go forward. The North American culture is not the only philosophy worth following. We need to look ahead, not just years, but generations, to be certain that our actions of today will make the world a better and richer and more varied place for our grandchildren and their grandchildren.  — Robert Bateman

This lion and his lioness are just becoming alert in the afterglow, at the end of a day of relaxing. In the next few moments, they will rise and stretch and begin the evening hunt for food. - Robert Bateman

Periodically, I try to take myself by the collar and say "Bateman, wake up. Open your eyes. Hold on a second and look around." Nature has treasures to offer, if we will only pause for a moment, take a few deep breaths and smile. Some of the bounteous gifts come in late summer with the last flourish of flowers before fall. To call this roadside tapestry "weeds" is a travesty. The asters and goldenrod form a mural more lush and gorgeous than any Persian carpet. - Robert Bateman
