I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series. Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life. Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins. It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.
My painting, Vitality, will be featured in the upcoming “Wanderlust” exhibit opening this weekend at Modern Eden Gallery. This piece is an acrylic on pressed paper, 5.82″ wide by 4.13″ high. The opening reception will be this Saturday, December 10th, from 6-9pm at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, CA. And if you miss the opening, the show will be up through December 30th.
Well, this is it. This is the last time Mother Nature will be on view to the public. It is currently on exhibit in the “Animus” exhibit in London, and afterwards will have its permanent home in London. This painting has been an important piece for me since it is the only painting I’ve done directly dealing with dairy:
Our use of animals and the environment has led to practices that could be considered a bizarre perversion of nature. From our everyday use to the most complex scientific discoveries, we have created a new world far removed from that of our original planet. Our food is no longer something we grow or find ourselves, but prepackaged, processed, and mass-produced. ‘Natural’ has become unnatural. We consider it eccentric or bohemian. We, as adults, drink what is essentially breast milk from an entirely different species, yet scoff at the idea of a woman breastfeeding her infant in public. In Mother Nature a calf is seen nursing from a human breast, calling to question our double standards- if this is bizarre, then why is it not when the roles are reversed?
One of my paintings from my New Realm series has recently found a new home. The painting is titled Acceptance and is one of my largest paintings at 48″ wide by 36″ high. View more paintings from the series here: http://amyguidry.com/beginning.html.

I recently created this painting for the “Wanderlust” exhibit at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California. The title is Roam and it is an acrylic on pressed paper, 5.82″ wide by 4.13″ high. The exhibition is open now through January 2, 2016 so even though my painting sold, there is still time to see it in person.
A few of my small paintings in the In Our Veins series have recently found new homes in Louisiana and New York. A couple of them were just featured in my newsletter upon finishing. Circular and Vision are both acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4″ and Conserve is also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 4″ high.
These are the remaining small paintings in this series available:
