No Swimming Lessons Today

NOTES: Dogs are man’s best friend but dogs’ best friend may be John Weiss, who has immortalized them with artistry and sensitivity in Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Editions for nearly thirty years. The Anniversary Edition No Swimming Lessons Today features one of Weiss’ beloved breeds and most popular. Nearly all his Lab editions are in low inventory or Sold Out at Publisher.

“The Labrador retriever is a very powerful swimmer,” he says, “known for recovery work in all kinds of water conditions including extreme cold. They were originally bred to work alongside fisherman, helping to pull in nets and catch fish. Eventually they were cross-bred with other breeds such as setters and spaniels and what we know as a Lab today became a prized game retriever for hunters, and has a famously even temperament.”

The setting for this painting is Marblehead on Lake Erie. “There’s a beautiful lighthouse and rocks that overlook the lake,” Weiss explains, “but every time there’s a nor’easter, you get tremendous waves coming in. Mom was going to take the pup in for a lesson, but the waves are too big, so there are no swimming lessons today.”

Indulge your love of Labs and motherhood with this classic John Weiss Anniversary Edition of Labrador retrievers waiting out Mother Nature.

John Weiss bio

"I enjoy painting things people can relate to," John Weiss says, "perhaps because I can relate to them myself. They re familiar things, part of an everyday life we can understand and enjoy." Weiss developed this appreciation during his childhood in Akron, Ohio. His father was a draftsman to whom John credits his disciplined approach to art. He drew throughout his childhood and developed his skill in high school art classes. On a trip to Maine, he saw an exhibit of Andrew Wyeth s work, which inspired him to pursue art while attending Kent State University. Weiss left college after two years to go into the landscape business, but he returned to full-time painting within four years. "My work is essentially self-taught," he maintains. "I study the work of artists I admire and learn from their methods and techniques. I studied color theory by referring to a color wheel and mixing paints. Experience is the best teacher." Weiss persevered with his study and his dedication has paid off. Today his paintings of dogs and of horses have an avid and loyal following. "Word of mouth has resulted in my works being sold all over the world," he says. "There was even one portrait of a dog that was presented to Queen Elizabeth by Lady Barlow." Weiss work is exhibited regularly and recently he won the "Cover of the Year" award from the National Dog Writers Association.
