I’ll share more updates soon, in the meantime, you can check out the rest of this series here: http://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

My painting Sentience was recently featured in Art Galleries & Artists of the South Magazine as part of a spread on LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Sentience has also found a new home. This was the first of my “butterfly eyes” paintings. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″high.

Closeup shot of the progress on my latest painting. Finished the flowers, currently working on the bear’s fur. With all that hair, I’m going through a lot of tiny paintbrushes on this piece! This painting is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ by 12.” Hoping to finish this one soon and reveal the finished piece.

After working on a few other projects for upcoming shows, I finally have a chance to get back to my grizzly bear painting. And I’m at the point where I can work on the face, which is when it really comes to life. The subject becomes more real to me once I paint the eyes. Even if I don’t know the subject, it’s when I paint the eyes that they come to life. They take on a personality. It’s exciting for me as an artist to witness that transformation.
This painting is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ by 12.” I’ll be posting the finished piece soon. In the meantime, you can check out the rest of the In Our Veins series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
Just finished this small painting from my In Our Veins series. Cohaereo, which is Latin for connected, is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” The rabbit wears a collar of roses atop an exposed heart. The heart on the outside of the body serves as a reminder of our shared biology with all of life. The butterflies are a metaphor for life in that both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/Cohaereo.html.
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.
