The latest painting in my In Our Veins series is now online.  The title is Invasive Species and it is an acrylic on canvas, 20” wide by 10” high.  There is no shortage of fast food establishments: they are everywhere, all over the world, sometimes multiples on the same block.  While these businesses are taking over natural habitat, there are an inordinate number of species going extinct or listed as endangered everyday.  The dodo bird is the unfortunate mascot of extinction, which is why I chose him to be the subject of this painting.  There are more McDonald’s in the world than there are endangered species.  The fact that dodos were literally eaten to extinction by Dutch explorers adds another layer of symbolism.  While we have an overabundance of fast food places, many species such as the right whale and polar bear are dying off due to a lack of food.  This painting serves as not only a reminder of the plight of the dodo but also for the prioritization of endangered species and natural habitat.  You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/invasive-species.html.

New Work / Exhibition

“Interconnect” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; $500; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

My latest painting in the In Our Veins series is now online.  This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s “Floriography” exhibition going on now through May 5th, 2018.  It’s titled Interconnect and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  The human third eye refers to our connection to all of nature, both flora and fauna.

I chose to paint a jaguar for this piece- one of my favorite big cats ever since childhood.  And an appropriate subject for a floriography-themed exhibit as their black spots are referred to as “rosettes” because of their rose-like shape.  Jaguars are mainly found in the Amazon or remote areas of Central and South America.  They haven’t reached full endangered status -yet- but their population is in decline and they are listed as Threatened.

“Floriography” is on view at Gristle Art Gallery in Brooklyn, New York now through May 5th.  You can also view the exhibit online here: https://www.gristleartgallery.com/floriography.html.

Sold

“Sight” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

My small painting Sight has just found a new home.  This was the first time I’ve painted a barn owl, and I was very happy with the results.  I especially enjoyed painting the contrast of the dark eyes against the white feathers.  The human eye on his forehead refers to our connection with all of nature.  This piece is part of a larger series titled In Our Veins, which you can view online here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

In Progress

Dodo painting in progress by Amy Guidry (detail); Acrylic on canvas; 20″w x 10″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

Making some progress on my current painting.  I’m working on the details of the dodo bird’s face and feathers at the moment.  There’s still a little work left to do on the background, but I just had to work on the dodo.  I took some artistic license on the details.  For example, adding folds of skin around the eyes and wrinkles.  All the old illustrations and even the model recreations give him a completely smooth face, but after looking at tons of various bird photos, I decided against that and made my own interpretation.  This is just a close-up photo- the entire painting is 20″ wide by 10″ high, and is an acrylic on canvas.  More details soon.  You can view the rest of this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

Another close-up of my dodo painting in progress.  This is just the initial rough layer of paint for now.  I’ve actually been working on the background, but I won’t reveal too much just yet.  So for now, it’s just a little sneak peek.  The entire painting is 20″ wide by 10″ high and is an acrylic on canvas.  I’ll share more updates soon, in the meantime, you can check out the rest of this series here: http://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
