Working on a few paintings at the moment- this small painting is currently in progress. I’ll be revealing the finished piece in my upcoming newsletter next week. (Sign up here for the first look at the finished painting.) This tiny bunny wears a collar of roses atop a giant heart. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.
A little preview of something I’m working on for an upcoming exhibit. The theme deals with animal spirits, which I was all set to paint a bear for this one and then had a strong inclination to paint a lion at the last minute (because I’m a Leo??). I also felt like I should go for a more monochromatic look- close to, at least. This is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” I’ll be posting more info about the exhibit closer to time. Until then, check out more of this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
In anticipation of the exhibition I have coming up, I’m sharing my finished painting, Transformation. This piece was created for Wow X Wow’s second online exhibition, “Room of a Thousand Doors.” It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” The exhibition opens this Friday, September 1st, 7PM BST through September 22, 2017. In the meantime, view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/transformation.html. Email sales(at)wowxwow(dot)com with any inquiries.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow. I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take). The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me. This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks. It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″ The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.
Revealing my two paintings for the upcoming Coaster Show 2017 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The coyote piece is titled Vitae, which is Latin for life. It is an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. The skull painting is titled Elucido, which is Latin for enlighten. It is also an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. Both will be on display as part of the exhibition opening September 1st (gallery reception that evening from 8-11pm). The exhibit runs September 1st through October 1st, 2017.

I’m happy to announce that my work is featured in the current issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine based out of the UK. Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured alongside the article. Issue 42 is available for download at: http://www.veganlifestylemagazine.com/.

A few photos of my current painting in progress. I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status. Sad, but fitting. 700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding. Our priorities need to change. So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece. We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered. I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.
Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home. It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see. So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.
These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract. The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.
