Santa Barbara Kennel Club

"Breeder"s Showcase" Santa Barbara Kennel Club

Commissioned by SBKC, this painting is 18 x 24 oil on canvas done with a palate knife.

In 2009 SBKC held the first ever Breeder's Showcase at Earl Warren show grounds in Santa Barbara, CA sponsored by Purina. This painting is a result of many photographs that I took during the event. The event showcases breeders and their dogs. Please see more about this event at Santa Barbara Kennel Club

I chose this year to do the hound group because Afghans are my breed and I felt they should be the in the first painting. This painting will be the cover of the catalog, adorn 22 x 28 size posters and some merchandising materials that you can purchase during the 2 day weekend event coming up Aug. 28th.

(Please note) I will be available for poster signing during the group level of competition at the SBKC Kennel Club shows, so be sure to stay tuned for more info on this.

After completing the painting above I have just found out that Earl Warren put in stadium lights for the arena. Sadly these old time lights are gone. I am so glad I was able to paint the arena the way I have known it and will always remember it.

Until next time, ENJOY THE ART! Terry d. Chacon
