Hot Chocolate (fine art canvas) by John Weiss
“I enjoy painting animals to which people can relate,” says John Weiss. “They are a familiar part of our everyday life we understand and enjoy. While searching through reference materials, I came across an image of a friend’s Chocolate Labrador. They’re amazing little creatures during their puppy stage and I tried to capture that special time in their lives by going for a natural look that makes you feel you can reach out and pet the dog.” Weiss has accomplished just that in this warm and charming portrait.
“I paint for the love of dogs the many emotions they share. Some paintings are deeper emotional metaphors than other, but my hope is that they each capture the joy and encouragement of their faithful subjects. I’m truly blessed to be able to paint every day, and am thrilled to share my enjoyment with others through my work.”
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. ”
