Artist: John Weiss Title: One Morning in October Image Size: 28" x 18 " Edition:Artist Hand Signed and Numbered Limited Edition to 250 Medium: Fine Art Giclee on Canvas About the Art: “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.
