89.9 WWNO’s Inside the Arts program recently did an interview with curators Christy Wood and Jordan Blanton about the Ouroboros exhibit currently open at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans.  Diane Mack conducts the interview in which they discuss several works from the exhibit (including mine) and the concept of the show itself.  You can listen to the interview online (about 15 minutes into the program is the Ouroboros interview): http://wwno.org/post/inside-arts-yotam-habers-torus-ouroboros-exhibit-celebrates-rebirth.

I’ve made a lot of progress on my latest painting in the In Our Veins series.  You may recall seeing the very early stages of this painting from a previous post.  The horses are now finished and I am currently building the layers of the landscape, adding fine detail work along the way.  The size is 20″ wide by 10″ high, acrylic on canvas.  I’ll post the finished painting as soon as it is complete, in the meantime, check out the series it comes from here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html and here: http://amyguidry.com/wolfpack.html.

Behind the Easel

Something you may not know about me:
I like to work in my studio alone.  It helps me focus, especially when I’m working on a more challenging aspect of a painting.  I do have “roommates,” though, and occasionally a cat will be asleep on my lap while I paint.  These moments are short, as cats tend to change their sleeping areas throughout the day, but has become an almost daily occurrence.  So this is a photo from my vantage point behind the easel.
