I know that it’s the holiday season and all, but I just had to post my newest painting. It’s jolly, I know. I’m fresh out of snowman paintings… Yes, the timing is probably off, but I’m so excited to finally share this new piece. It’s so new I haven’t even named the series yet. Any ideas??

This painting is titled “The Wild West” and is a 24″ x 30″ acrylic on canvas. It’s not on my website yet, as I am working on a couple more pieces to put on there as a group. Otherwise this one would be all by its lonesome. It took me forever to finish this painting. The others are not as grueling, but this one took over 188 hours. I’m surprised my hand hasn’t fallen off.

Be sure to check back on my website www.AmyGuidry.com to view this and other paintings from my newest series. While you are there, be sure to check out more of my work. You won’t find any snowmen or candy cane paintings on there, but I like to think you’ll still enjoy it. Happy Holidays!

Evolving

I’m happy to say that two of my paintings have sold over the past week. That’s one thing about holiday shopping that I don’t mind. It goes without saying, but art is an original and personal gift, so I’m always delighted when someone wants to give one of my creations to their loved ones. That said, my painting, “Evolving” is now going to make someone’s Christmas merry. If you are unfamiliar, “Evolving” is from my New Realm series, which you can view in its entirety at www.AmyGuidry.com.

"Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?" by Amy Guidry

And if you read my blog often, you will be more than familiar with this painting- “Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?” This piece is currently in the “Feast” exhibition at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin (you may┬árecall me┬ámentioning it…). It sold just the other day, though it may or may not be a gift. Could be a gift to one’s self… This painting comes from my social commentary series, which is also on my website.

So with that said, I’m off to take care of my own holiday errands. (And get some new photos of my next painting…so be sure to check back.)

Reflection of my painting, "Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?"
The “Feast” exhibit is currently on display at Wally Workman Gallery in Austin, TX. My painting, “Food or Pet? How Do You Decide?” is featured in the window of the gallery and was used as the image for the show. It was also selected for the upcoming event, “Edible Austin,” in which chefs will create their culinary interpretations of my painting. I hope they realize you can do a lot with tofu…

I was at the opening reception last weekend and have a few photos to share. The entire album will be posted on my website soon (www.AmyGuidry.com), so be on the lookout.

On the upstairs level of the gallery, various works by the gallery’s represented artists were also on display. I took the opportunity to pose with my painting, “Acceptance” from my New Realm series.

And a Few More Links…

Amy Guidry with her painting, "Introspective"I probably have enough links on here, BUT I’m going to go ahead and give you a few more. Haha. Actually, I really do want to let everyone know about this. Steve Gray runs the blog, Art Re-Source, and he so kindly asked me to do an interview. It’s just been posted, and has quite a few images, actually, I think he used all the images I sent him, so please be sure to check it out. http://stevegray.com.au/blog/amy-guidry-artist/

Also, I should mention that I met Steve via LinkedIn. I had a profile on there, but didn’t know what to do with it. Art Calendar Magazine had a great article about LinkedIn (thanks to Renee Phillips!) which informed me of all the opportunities that lie ahead when joining LinkedIn (other than just having your name saved on there like I did…). So if you’re on LinkedIn or about to join, you can connect with me at http://www.linkedin.com/in/amyguidryartist.

Oh, and if you’re new to this site, you can also check out all of my artwork on my website www.AmyGuidry.com.
