Description From my 'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie' series, this Lab painting is titled 'Beauty Sleep'. It is a simplified, abstract style, capturing the feeling and essence of the moment. Sweet dreams. This black Labrador Retriever painting by Amy Reges is inspired by my own dogs, the OtterTail Labradors. Original acrylic on stretched canvas is available (unframed). Prints make great gifts for dog lovers or bedrooms. Copyright Amy Reges 2007.
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.
