“This guy’s name is Lucky. He was given to my son Peter, as a little puppy, when Peter himself was only six years old. And boy, with their manes of unruly hair did they look a lot like each other! Eventually, they have both grown into big animals. Lucky loved snow and chasing after minnows, he was a dedicated friend, a great swimmer and an avid nap taker.” – Alexander Volkov
The patrons of the Marcus Ashley Gallery combine their love of art with the Sierras of Lake Tahoe. From Michelangelo to Dr. Suess and Todd White to Steve Barton, the gallery curates works of artists both locally and internationally. Their collections also include Alexander Volkov art, a series of rich realism paintings that many have come to love.
What’s most important to Volkov is creating a soulful connection with viewers. In Spring Break, the artist paints his furry companion in the middle of a deep slumber. Volkov captures the sheer comfort of this scene through precise, deliberate brushwork. Sunlight filters through the windows, casting a warm glow on Lucky’s golden fur.
The rich tones and muted hues give this piece a true-to-life appeal, artistically depicting a day in a dog’s life. For animal lovers, this painting can be a warm reminder of companionship and love.
This heartfelt piece and other works of Volkov have been sourced for commercial and residential spaces. To purchase this piece, interested art collectors can reach out to the Marcus Ashley Gallery.
