A Big Fish Story
LIMITED EDITION CANVAS - JW00076
NOTES: 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..
A Big Fish Story Canvas by John Weiss is signed by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

"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.
