The painting below was selected to appear in the 2010  juried art exhibition (and very competitive) Art Show at the Dog Show in Wichita, Kansas. It is created in the style of the 14th century illuminated manuscript masterpiece The Book of the Hunt.
 
I produce one of these pieces per year and try to incorporate stylistic and design elements found in the pages of the manuscript. It is hard to believe that the original manuscript illuminations are approximately 10 centimeters square and are so detailed. The artists responsible for their creation must often have worked with brushes that only had one or two bristles.
