Description There's nothing like spending a relaxed afternoon with a good friends soaking up sunshine on the porch. Two yellow labrador retrievers lie side by side enjoying each others friendship. Based on a photo of my own dogs - we all love sunbathing on the deck! The abstract patters of the sun on their coats and cast shadows inspired me for this simple painting. Artist, Amy Reges - OtterTail Dog Art. Love those otter tails!
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.
