High up in the mountains, far away from any human contact there exists a serene-like feeling that one can only experience by hiking miles off the beaten path. Many times I've hiked through seemingly endless forested country only to step out into an open such as the one depicted in this painting. This place doesn't exist literally, but instead exists only in my imagination. I'm so inspired by the feeling I get while exploring the back-country and I wanted to capture that feeling in a painting. The valley is as calm as could be after a recent rain shower, indicated by the steam rising from all the low areas. A lone wolf breaks the silence while calling out to any others who might be nearby. The sun's rays break through the clouds and mountain peaks, calling out to all of us. I wanted this painting to spark that urge inside of us that makes us want to get out and explore life. The mountains are calling for you. Can you hear it?

Another of Chuck's prints to add to my small collection.
Always beautiful paintings, and they are securely packaged and protected for posting. Thanks !
It is not easy to find the words to describe the exquisite beauty of "The Calling". This painting is the most eye-catching depiction of nature that I have seen. Chuck Black possesses a genius in the use of indirect lighting to highlight a breathtaking view of a rock-strewn creek. This light passes through mountain mist that presents an ethereal, and at the same time, very realistic scene. The greatest highlight is the presentation of a diminuatively depicted wolf. True to nature, the animal blends into his surroundings, a mysterious member of the great world of Nature.
Excellent art, I love what you do
I like to wake up and see this picture because for me its the light from heaven shining down blessing us another day. The beauty is amazing. Thank you!
A beautiful print that hangs in our living room and is enjoyable to look at. I love the details; especially the tiny wolf and the way the sunlight shines through the trees.
How do I know that I'll like my painting once it arrives without seeing it in person prior to purchasing?
I strive to take the highest quality photos of my artwork to display on the product pages. Most images of the art itself are professional imaged and color corrected to the original artwork by professionals. I photograph my framed art and wall photos with a DSLR camera and professional quality lighting. If for some reason you are unhappy with the painting once you receive it then you may return it to the address provided and I will refund your money granted the art is returned in good condition. Insurance is the responsibility of the customer for return postage.

How do I know what I'm getting is a quality product?
My original art is produced with nothing by the highest quality artist grade and archival grade materials. From the paints, to the additives, to the canvas, to the boards, to the frames, to the matting and to any other aspect of the process, I use the best possible products and materials available. I personally guarantee that your original painting will last many many many years to come. If you have specific questions then ask away! I'll be happy to answer.
My limited edition prints are personally printed and proofed for quality by myself, Chuck Black.
