Santa Barbara Kennel Club painting 2012

   "Dog News" a national dog magazine at is a weekly magazine put out for the dog fancy.  It is always a pleasure to see my artwork adorning one of the pages.  Santa Barbara Kennel Club has commissioned me for eight years to do a painting of each group recognized in the Breeder's Showcase and the last painting will be a Best in Breeder's Showcase.  Each year the club has auctioned off the painting at the Breeder's Showcase.  The image of the painting are used for the catalog cover, posters to publicize the event in the Santa Barbara area and items to sell at the show including:  (sweatshirts, tote bags and beautiful greeting cards are available at the Santa Barbara tent)   This year a framed print will be offered to every Best of Breed winner.    As a longtime member of SBKC and a dog show person,  I was excited to take on the task. 

Every  year I have gone to the event with my camera in tow and snap photos during the weekend and of the Breeder's Showcase.  Last year the one thing that excited me most was the beautiful sunsets each evening that came over the arena where the groups and Best In Show are held along with the Breeder's Showcase.   I definitely wanted to capture that in my painting. 

The Breeder's Showcase sponsored by Purina is for the Breeder's.   Each Breeder can enter two dogs that they have bred, shown by anyone and the prize money is great.   Each exhibitor, judge and patron is invited to attend the free dinner, and watch the dogs showing in the event.  It is night
  I have added the two previous paintings for your viewing pleasure.
