While working on some dog portrait commissions, I decided to give a gift to a friend of mine whose ranch I've chukar hunted on for years. Incredible memories, and these are two of his setters, on point on his ranch, who are now passed on. So, I just finished this 9 x 12 oil on panel for him. It's a fairly loose painting, and very painterly, but I like the tension and overall feel of it. This is "Two Setters," 9 x 12 oil on panel:

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.

I feel the pain of those who have never lived with setters. My life with setters started in 1948 when I was not quite three years old. I went through some time with long tail pointers and a wonderful Wirehair, but my time with setters was the best.

My "life with setters" began in earnest in 2014 when I bought my first, and probably only, English setter, Gracie. Until that day I had only dreamed of a wonderful setter in my life. My dream came true and renews itself every day.
