Tales of the Force
"Tales of the Force" 1988 Release.   This image introduced Arnold Friberg's art to Canadians. It quickly became a sold-out edition, and is now a highly sought after secondary market print. Looking into the rugged face of the storyteller, you feel the spirit that has made the RCMP famous throughout the world and an inspiration to all boys. (A personal note: Many people don't know that the young boy in the ski sweater is Arnold Friberg's son, Frank.)
"The Model Builder" (Toy Maker) 1993 Release. Another instant favorite of collectors not only in Canada, but everywhere, this painting takes us into an old frontiersman's cabin, reminiscing with his good friend in scarlet serge about past days of his adventures. We feel we're almost at the North Pole, with Saint Nick just around the corner!

Springtime in the North
"Springtime in the North" 1996 Release. Winter snow still lingers on the ground, but the force is already on the trail. A splendid stallion pauses to quench his thirst in a thawing stream amidst the splendor of the Canadian forest in its pre-spring beauty. Astride his mount and resplendent in his official scarlet serge, the Mountie, too, pauses to collect his thoughts for the duty ahead.
"Companions of the Trail" 1994 Release. The harsh world of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police would be a lonely place, indeed, if not for faithful companions on the trail, both dogs and Indian guide. Note the detail in the accurate depiction of the Mountie's winter wear, and authenticity of the sled and the dogs in siwash harness.

The Puffing Billy
"The Puffing Billy" 1990 Release. Pictured here is "Climax," a unique steam locomotive manufactured by Climax Locomotive Company in Corty, Pennsylvania. Strictly a workhorse locomotive, it is instantly recognizable from its slanted cylinders, and the low gearing gives it the extra power for pulling heavy loads of timber. Also, the peculiar looking road bed - instead of rock, they utilized the most plentiful available material, timber.
"The Trail Ends at the Sea" 1995 Release. It's been a long search, to the shores of the ocean, but the Mountie always gets his man. When we look closer, we see that the wanted man as pictured on the poster is working in the background, and we understand the dilemma of the stevedores who aren't sure if they will turn in their fellow worker. The reward poster is historically authentic, as is the detailed ship, the Star of Alaska, which plied the coastal waters from Alaska southward in the glory days of sailing ships.
