Just for grins, I thought you guys might enjoy seeing something other than guns and birds. Here's a small 10 x 8 vizsla portrait I painted for a friend in my dog club. I was under a bit of a time crunch, so it's a bit looser style than I normally paint, but you get the idea. The dog's name is Jaz:

Also, American Art Collector magazine is doing a full page feature article on my surrealist work in the May issue. I'm pretty stoked. Very Happy

Very Nice!
I have one portrait each of my now deceased Britt and Lab.

Beautiful work on your pup's portrait. Makes me wish I had one of my 7 year old GSP, but he's camera shy and the only pictures I have where he doesn't look abused are when he's pointing a bird.

Very nice Mark. Looking forward to seeing another painting of Brier as he's on the stock of the little Jones underlever .

Not a painting of any dog I own, but here's a painting that Mark did on my Yildiz .410 single-shot turkey gun:
