I've been working on several commissioned pieces lately, including this one, which - I commissioned myself to paint! Mr. Rich is a hunting/fishing machine, and when he hunts for upland game birds his trusty English Setters do the work of finding the birds. This year I decided I should take my own advice that the best gift one can give is an original oil painting of a personal, special place, animal, moment in time. These gifts live on forever, and bring years of joy, are often a favorite of one's possessions.
Fortunately, photography is my second choice in the arts, and I have accompanied Mr. Rich and his setters on a number of occasions where I enjoy taking photos, so I had a number of them to choose from. I decided that this said it all:
"Annie" 16"x20" oil on canvas
Whether it's a cow or not, getting a painting of exactly what you want is as easy as that!
