Fine Art print, 12 x 19 inches.
Reproduced from an original watercolor painting by Kevin Roeckl.
The original painting was displayed at the 1992 Doberman Pinscher Club of America National, and sold very quickly. After that it was not seen again publicly until 2020 when it was shared on my Facebook page in honor of the first day of Fall. The post received hundreds of Likes and Shares from Doberman lovers.
The Story Behind the Art
The model for this painting was my beautiful Jake (1985-1997). Jake loved “fishing” more than anything else. It was a sport Jake discovered when he was young, and he indulged in it every chance he got. Every pond, stream, lake, river, and tide-pool we visited, he spent hours stalking the elusive little fish….tiptoeing lightly to not scare them, intently scanning the water, and when he had one, pounce! He would dive his head under clear up to his chest. Fishing not only made Jake’s heart sing, it made mine sing as well. The poetic beauty of a magnificent Doberman dancing through the water, with his sleek coat shining, muscles rippling, and his reflection mimicking every graceful movement — I never got tired of watching him. I spent the rest of Jake’s life trying to capture the beauty of that in paintings. Every painting I did was my love song to him.
