Description Portrait of a Brittany Spaniel dog caught in a contemplative moment. Perhaps he his thinking about the birds he will find tomorrow or the fun he will have playing with his dog friends. It's a quiet time in an otherwise busy, happy life. This portrait was commissioned by his owner. If this lovely boy isn't the one you are looking for, contact Amy of OtterTail Dog Art for a portrait painting of your own.
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.
