Description Black Labrador painting created in honor of rescue dog fostered by artist, Amy Reges. 'I Rest My Weary Head' seems to be his thoughts as this 11 year old dog settles in to a new life. Once this dog found stability he turned out to be a sweet, affectionate and very savvy gentleman. Original painting available. 25% of profits from sales of this print will be donated to Lab Rescue.
Amy Reges, Burdett, NY Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I love to bring a smile to the face of anyone who views my art or make a connection by touching a shared sentiment. In my paintings I am not a realist, but prefer to simplify and abstract important elements that express a feeling, emotion or moment in time. I have worked in an array of materials and mediums - acrylic paint on canvas is my current favorite along with photography and digital manipulation and hand-painted silk scarves. I have always enjoyed training animals and getting to know what is important to them. Dogs, particularly Labrador Retrievers (my own and the rescue dogs I foster), are my first love and predominate my artistic passion. I love working with my hands, which also includes gardening and cooking. Both of these hobbies plus my love of nature also inspire my art.
It is a pleasure to be able to share with you affordable high quality giclee prints of my original art and photographs. My hope is that the art you purchase will brighten your day as it brightens your wall.
