Ross B. Young specializes in sporting dog art with an emphasis on custom dog portraits. Landscape paintings, wildlife art, hunting paintings, fly fishing paintings and limited edition prints round out his fine art repertoire. His oil paintings have been described as painterly and forthright, a true expression of the places and sports he knows so well.
Ross has a solid foundation in fine art having received his Bachelor of Fine Art ('78) and Master of Art ('80) degrees in painting from the University of Tulsa. His clients include such corporate giants as Nestle Purina, International Paper Company, Iams and national sporting dog organizations. Ross' work has been published as book covers and in or on the covers of Gun Dog Magazine, American Field, Grouse Point Almanac, Sporting Tales, Pointing Dog Journal, Sporting Classics, Wildlife Art, Field Trial Magazine, Informart Magazine and U.S. Art Magazine. He has published over 50 limited edition prints, two of which were published by Quail Unlimited and another was the 2002 Waterfowl U.S.A. print of the year. Over the years Ross has shown his work in national and international art shows, galleries and museums. In 2001 he was honored with a one man show entitled "The Sporting Tradition" at the National Bird Dog Museum in Grand Junction, TN.
When Ross is not at work in his studio, you will most likely find him out hunting, fly fishing, field training bird dogs or shooting skeet. Ross divides his working time between his main studio located in a rural setting outside of Springfield, MO, and his mobile studio "Arlo" which could be about anywhere. Ross is equally at home painting beside a cascading stream as he is at his easel in the studio. Having been there is what makes all the difference.
Ross' works are exhibited at these fine art galleries; Blackhawk Gallery, Saratoga, WY, Cisco's, Couer d' Alene, ID, Midland Gallery, Midland, TX, Pendleton's American Fine Art, Marshfield, MO, The Ross B. Young Art Studio and Gallery, Springfield, MO and the Story Sloane Gallery, Houston, TX.
