Her owners gave me permission to use the information they had about her on their website - here is what is posted under a beautiful photo of her:

"Easi, and that totally depicts her, is our Homebred Star. Finishing her AKC, and Canadian Champion title just months before she won the Irish Setter Club of America National Specialty in 2008 , then only to follow the next year by winning Best of Breed at Westminster "The Garden" in New York City. All of this before she was 4 years old. Throughout her career extending 2 years, always piloted by Jennifer Holmberg Baggenstos, Easi garnered 50 + Group Firsts, Numerous Best In Specialty Breed Awards and Five All Breed Best In Shows."
Now, years later, I was honored by being asked to paint her. You know they always say good things come around. This has been a full circle for me. Being able to share in the glory of this dog and then being able to paint her. Thank you Janet for having me paint your special girl as a surprise for Gary.
