Heart and Soul (fine art print) by John Weiss
John Weiss is one of the country’s most sought-after dog portrait artists because of his ability to capture the nature of the canine in a way no one else can. “Heart and Soul” is another addition to these extremely popular images several of which are Sold Out at Publisher. The subject of “Heart and Soul” is a Black Labrador puppy, whose loyal affection and high-spirited good nature are apparent at first glance.
“I’m essentially self-taught,” he says, “having studied the work of artists I admire and learn from their methods and techniques. Experience is the best teacher.” John has painted some of the most important dogs of our time, having the joy and privilege of meeting and making many four-legged friends worldwide, and his avid and loyal collectors include many prominent families. John was commissioned by Lady Barlow to paint a portrait of a dog that was subsequently presented to Queen Elizabeth. Other notable collectors include as Jane Firestone, and John’s sketch of her German Shepard, Hatter, (the winningest dog in show dog history), is part of the AKC Museum of the Dog in St. Louis’ permanent collection. Weiss is recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including the Cover of the Year award from the National Dog Writers Association, U.S. Art magazine’s Artist to Watch as well as the top print of the year honors.
