Great painting Mark, love all your work.


Homey jOe, not all dogs back the other, some dogs have to get the scent before they point. Besides this is the artists rendition of what he wanted, not yours.

Agree- after Osthaus, Abbett's work is a close second. See the Fall 1977 ed. of GSJ-- The poem: The Grouse Hunter, with ils. by Abbett- beautiful fall scene, solid point by a stream, 2 grouse flushing and going off- and the Titus poem "Oh hunter, when you come at last, and start me from some covert place-- My idea of heaven on earth-- Nice work, Mark, very nice indeed.

Very nice painting, Mark! An awesome gift, from the heart!

Having hunted "the breaks and similar country," from your painting, I can picture in my minds eye the terrain as it breaks off into the the river canyon below and the hunter with great anticipation of a flushing group of chukar, behind the pointing setters!

Mark,
That is wonderful work, but on the other hand we have come to accept such work as normal from you.

All true....I wasn't looking for fault the unnatural looking scene just jumped out at me when I saw the painting.

Very nice, Mark. As for realism, I've seen it occur recently. I wish I'd taken a photo of Abby and Sadie that close together on a woodcock last week. I also wished I'd laid down my gun and picked up Abby and moved her back as she creeped in on the bird. Sometimes dogs get competitive and will creep in disregarding "honor". Early season dogs often forget their manners. Floyd nailed it on the rise. Gil

Thank you all for the kind words. It does of course feel good to have some degree of talent, but using it to give back feels even better.
