The Way It Should Be
Nat. Ch. Funseeker's Rebel
A lifelong hunter and fisherman, Young knows the adrenaline rush of a covey rise, the smell of dawn as ducks cup into the decoys and the thrill of a trout rising to a well-placed fly. Personal experiences like these add authenticity to his paintings and invite the viewer to relive his/her own outdoor adventures.

A professional artist since 1980, Rossí award winning art spans a number of painting genres. His repertoire of subjects includes upland bird hunting, fly fishing, wildlife and landscapes. Ross has the honor of painting the most distinguished sporting dogs in the world. The Nestle Purina Company commissions Ross to annually paint 18 portraits of their Outstanding Field Trial Dog Awards and sponsored Championships. He is the official artist for the National Pointing Dog Championship and the Continental Championship (each of which have been running for well over 100 years), American Field Quail and Pheasant Futurity, N.S.T.R.A.

When Ross is not at work in his studio, you will most likely find him out doing what he loves most: hunting, fly fishing and hiking. Ross divides his working time between his main studio located in the Bear River Range near Mink Creek, Idaho and his mobile studio "Arlo" which could be about anywhere. Rossí paintings may be viewed at www.rossyoung.com or by appointment at the Ross B. Young Art Studio, affectionately known as "The Dog House."
