Artist Statement:

The dark shadows and bright highlights of this photograph create a simple yet peaceful scene, and the warm tones of sunlight and wood create an air of silence that envelops the viewer. The dog’s relaxation and appreciation for the soft mattress shows through his expression and posture. When this photo was first taken it was far too dark, however after brightening, this picture shows its full potential and acts as a testament to not giving up too early.

Artwork Dimensions: 10 inches high x 10 inches wide
