I am happy to announce that my painting Everything’s Coming Up Roses was recently featured as the title image in an essay on the Huffington Post blog. The essay, “Death Becomes Us: Why We All Need to See Death and Decay” was written by Carla Valentine, Curator of Barts Pathology Museum in London.

My painting Sentient has recently found a new home. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x 6″ from my In Our Veins series. It is also a companion piece to my painting Conscience. The connection of all life, whether on an emotional or biological level, is a common theme in my work. View more from this series here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html.
I have a few photos of my current painting in progress. With the size and background on this, it is one of my more involved pieces. As with all of my paintings, I start off with a basic sketch onto the canvas.
Then I add a rough first layer of paint just to work everything in and then add numerous subsequent layers, building color and value as I go.
