Description Cave Dog - Labrador Retriever is a blending of painting techniques and mixed media resulting in a stone impression with a primitively painted, yet contemporary depiction of a show quality black Labrador Retriever. The original acrylic is textural and rough with varying layers of cave hues to simulate actual stone walls. It is on a 9 x 12 masonite panel and uniquely framed in a custom made slab cherry frame with tree bark on 2 edges matching the combination of the rough yet high quality concept created in the painting. Dog art and paintings by Amy Reges are inspired by my own OtterTail Labrador Retrievers. This print would look great on canvas.
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.
