“Some of my paintings tell stories, some focus on man’s best friend and then there are those that capture the emotions of life,” says John Weiss. “One of the jobs of an artist is to share with the world the moments which can only be described through their medium.

"'Anticipation' is one of those paintings. When the early morning temperatures sink lower than that of the water of Portage Lakes, the fog creates one of nature’s most captivating moods. And it is out of this fog that the Black Labrador greets this pair of men in their bass boat.”

“Whether a small mixed terrier in an apartment or a highly-trained working shepherd, dogs are instinctively protective and bent on being our guardians. I have always wanted to explore this theme in my artwork,” says renowned artist John Weiss. “The other inspiration for this painting was one of my favorite escapes, the Marble Head Lighthouse itself. For over 30 years, this spot has been a place of comfort for me.

“On this particular evening I was waiting to study the effect of moonlight on the water. The sun had set and the land was quite dark, but the sky was still full of ambient light, as the stars and moon had yet to appear. I stood looking at this lighthouse that has flashed since 1821, guarding and directing the vessels plying the waters of Lake Erie. My thoughts went to Benejah Wolcott, the original lighthouse keeper and what it must have been like on those lonely nights standing watch, guarding the guardian of the lakes."

Poodles are among the top 10 most popular breeds in America and are the national dog of France. The Standard Poodle is the oldest and largest of the three varieties (including Miniature and Toy). The breed is admired for its active and intelligent nature and its elegant appearance. Perhaps you'll be as surprised as we were to learn that poodle's hairstyles originate from their work as retrievers.

 

A Big Fish Story

by John Weiss

Oil
39" w x 18.5" h
$6,250

"A recurring theme in my 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.
