Does it Get Any Better?
by John Weiss

Is someone being taught to “fetch?” or, is someone being taught to “throw?” If you think about it, everything we understand about training something is in play. A behavior not genetically inherent to our survival is being impressed upon us through the will of another. We receive positive reinforcement for engaging in the behavior which encourages us to repeat it again and again. Even if we initiate the behavior, we generally do not stop until the canine has decided the behavior is complete. Heck, we’ll even fight over the stick just to get the chance to throw it again!

If the reward is a lifetime of loyalty and companionship, then this submission to another’s will is a glorious one. John Weiss has no equal when it comes to capturing this bond between man and dog. From capturing the mischievous gleam in a puppy’s eye to the long walks in the woods with your companion at your side, Weiss’ art constantly reminds us, "Does It Get any Better?"

A Feeling of Warmth
by John Weiss

As artist John Weiss remarked, “There’s nothing like sitting by the fire with your loyal dog curled up at your feet for a real sense that all is right with the world.”

". . . A heartbeat at my feet,” is how novelist Edith Wharton described her dog. "A Feeling of Warmth" is the perfect portrayal of both sentiments but we can also identify with this Golden, warming his back now and, in a little while, rising and turning to spread his belly along the heat of the fire.

“Did you ever notice that Goldens can lie in the snow with their faces buried, yet they never seem to get cold?” asks the artist. “Then they come into the house and lie so close to the flames you’d think they could catch fire. Extreme temperatures don’t seem to affect them much.” To paraphrase Charles M. Schulz, happiness is this warm puppy and this Anniversary Edition in your home will warm your long winter nights.

A Big Fish Story
by John Weiss

"A recurring theme in his paintings," says artist John Weiss, is that 'strength, comfort and encouragement are always within reach.'" Nowhere is this more evident than in this painting, "A Big Fish Story." Although the woods are dark and the night is cold, the figures in "A Big Fish Story" are bathed in light and warmth. Seated before a blazing fire, a fisherman recounts tales of his fishing prowess to an awed boy and his captivated beagle. The heat of the fire and the excitement of his grandfather's adventure have brought a flush to the boy's cheeks as he watches the legendary fish grow in size. Their companionship and love create a warmth that floods beyond the walls of the shelter, casting a golden glow on the snowy ground and surrounding woods. The light at the heart of "A Big Fish Story" draws the viewer in and we find ourselves leaning closer to hear just how big that fish really was.

Autmn Friends
by John Weiss

John Weiss’ favorite theme of companionship is beautifully realized in "Autumn Friends." Brilliantly combining colors and textures, Weiss creates an image that conveys emotion and humanity. The pair of friends in this image may be familiar to collectors who have seen his series of Grady images, including "Old Friends," "Forever Friends" and "New Friends" — all Sold Out at Publisher. In "Autumn Friends," Weiss captures a man and his dog on a crisp autumn morning as they set out for another of life’s adventures together as faithful friends.
