This beautiful boy is Marshall, one of the dogs that I walk daily. He is a Visla and is one and a half years old. True to his breed he is highly energetic, very sweet natured and getting him to hold still for a nano second to photograph him was quite a feat!

The portrait was commissioned as a gift by my client.

Oil on canvas 10x12"


  1. Viszla's are indeed one of the sweetest dogs. They are also gorgeous and one of the few breeds recognized by NAVHDA (North American Hunting Dog Association). I love the breed myself! (I believe it is a breed native to Hungary.) Your painting, Catherine, is phenomenal. Judging by Marshall's stance, I am wondering if his family shows him in the conformation ring?
