Maintaining The Right

Frame Size: 58" x 82"

Image Size: 48" x 72"

Description:
Of all the Mountie pictures Friberg painted, this one stands alone! While the former ones were created for calendars this commemorative subject was painted to honor their 125th anniversary (1873 - 1998). After a 20 year absence, Friberg welcomed this chance to paint one last "swan song" tribute to the Force.

Frame Size: 48.5" x 59"

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
This is essentially a formal double portrait of trooper and horse posed against a background of rugged mountain peaks and towering spruce. This is the tough, dedicated policeman seen in other paintings, but here we see him close up.

Mountie Watering Horse With Pack Horse In Lake

Frame Size:

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
This painting depicts the Mountie on the trail alone, except for his horse(s). He might be on the trail of a lawbreaker, or on routine patrol making sure all is well in the huge territory where he is the law, perhaps going from outpost to outpost, camp to camp. He is always on patrol.

Mountie & Indian Guide On Running Horses

Frame Size: 47.5" x 57.5"

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
This is a painting of unrelenting energy. The viewer's attention is riveted to this scene of high drama: the ruggedness of the terrain; the deep canyon just behind the figures, and the jagged mountains in the background, all accentuates the energy and drama of the downhill race. (Friberg's last Mountie painting)

Tales of the Force

Frame Size: 45.5" x 55.75"

Image Size: 36" x 45.5"

Description:
A retired Mountie telling stories to three young men. 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: The young boy in the ski sweater is Friberg's son, Frank.)

Mountie Riders & Wagon Train Meet Indians

Frame Size:

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
This painting depicts the moment when Indian braves have reined in their horses directly in front of the wagon train led by the Mountie. It is a summation of the development of Western Canada, as the migrating settlers move across into Indian lands, how will the new settlers and the established Indians mesh.

Mountie On Wharf With Reward Poster

*Trial Ends at the Sea*

Frame Size: 45.5" x 56"

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
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.

Mountie Watering Horse In Snow

*Springtime in the North*

Frame Size:

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
Friberg's pictures are not just a montage of historically correct details; they are pictorially the very embodiment of the R.C.M.P. espirit de corps! High ranking R.C.M.P. Officer's viewing one of Friberg's originals years ago once exclaimed, "It's not only correct, but that's just the way we feel when we're on a horse!"

Mountie Breaking Trail For Dog Team

Frame Size: 48.25" x 58.75"

Image Size: 36" x 46"

Description:
Winter does not put an end to the duties of the R.C.M.P. There is a festive tone to the painting. This notion is bolstered by the festive touches of red seen as the unexpected ball tassels on the Mountie's snowshoes and the red pompoms on the dogs' harnesses.
