Latisha......I painted this piece for a reproduction company in New York in the 60' s........The company has since gone out of business.... I am now working with a company in Florida.....In order to avoid possible difficulties, we changed the name......Hope you have enjoyed the picture...Take care......Duane

I have this painting also, but it is entitled "A good catch"...Can someone give me some information about this painting?

Jennifer.....Thanks for the complement and great story......Hope your son also enjoys it

Dear Mr. Probus, I'm amazed at how many stories there are of this painting. My grandfather was a door-to-door salesman in Baton Rouge, LA, and I believe this painting was one of the products he offered. It hung in my grandparents' living room all of my growing up years. On visits there, I would go to sleep on the sleeper sofa staring up at this picture and dreaming I was in it. My grandparents both passed away, and when their things were divided, I asked for this painting. Now my 13-year old son has it in his room. He likes it for the same reasons I do. He was curious and looked your name up online. I'm so glad he did! I just wanted to share with you that your painting is in lots of my happy memories. Isn't that something? I wonder if you ever dreamed of the effect just one painting would have? Pretty cool.

Bart Sherill Thanks....Hope it sells for lots of money

I acquired this painting at an auction about 6 years ago it is a 2' x 4' painting it looks great hope to sell it at the flea market this weekend the wife and I love it. I'll let you know if it it sells.

Harper..............Thanks for the compliment.........Hope you continue enjoying the picture.............

Hi, I recently found this painting on the side of the road in Houston, near my apartment. I stopped and picked it up. Now i have it hanging in my living room, I really like it, I had never heard of you before, but its a great painting.

Thanks guys for the great compliments......Hope things are well with you and yours......Take care ...........Duane

Thanks Randy for the great compliment.....Glad you have enjoyed it.....Take care.....Duane

I found this framed painting about 15 years ago (Best Friends) and I have always loved it. It was bound for the trash because it had been left behind by someone and I saved it. Everyone who has ever seen it has loved ti. My mother in law suggested I look your name up and to my surprise here you are. I have always looked at the painting and dreamed that I was there fishing or just in the serenity of the moment with my friend. Wander up one of the trails and explore new places.Thank you for work.

Thanks Penny....Glad you have enjoyed it..........Good luck with your projects

Duane, we have a large print of this painting hanging in our home, having been passed on from my mother-in-law's home. I was just standing and admiring it and decided to google your name, as I had never researched it at all in the past. I was astonished to find you right here on FAA. Your work is beautiful, and I'm proud to own and display a sample of it! F/V

Laura... Thanks for the very nice compliment.........My paintings are usually not of particular locations........As you know, these type scenes are all over Kentucky....It's just a matter of dreaming up a composition and painting it..............Take care.......Duane

where is this scene painted.Is it in Kentucky?

i have BestFriends on canvas framed and matted. bought at a yard sale about ten years ago just now found out about your work. this picture takes me to my happy place.

Mr.Probus, i love this painting we have one in our office. I am thinking that its a reproduction. although it looks original. we actually have several of your paintings. Keep up the good work.

Beautiful.

Duane, this is one of the most spectacular oil paintings I have ever seen on FAA or anywhere else! It is just astonishing! The perspective and DOF are fantastically done, and the piece, as a whole, is magnificently done and presented. Congrats on you very well deserved sale and you get a really big F/V on this wonderful masterpiece of art work!

Congrats on your sale! :)

Shawn and Fran.............. Thanks for the compliments......Shawn, I painted this piece in the 60's for a reproduction company in New York............I Later sold the original to an art collector..............Again, thanks.............Take care.........Duane s

Gorgeous!!

I have had this painting for over 41 years, not sure how old it actually is because that is how old I am and it has been hanging ever since. I absolutely love it and it has been passed down to me from my grandparents. Any chance or way of telling if it is an original or a reprint?

My Mother had this painting hanging in our living room when I was growing up, Now I have it in mine. I'm going to be 50 years young this August, so Its been around awhile! I still Love it!

GORGEOUS Painting... & What a Beautiful, Touching Story Above~
