Revealing my two paintings for the upcoming Coaster Show 2017 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, California. The coyote piece is titled Vitae, which is Latin for life. It is an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. The skull painting is titled Elucido, which is Latin for enlighten. It is also an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. Both will be on display as part of the exhibition opening September 1st (gallery reception that evening from 8-11pm). The exhibit runs September 1st through October 1st, 2017.

I’m happy to announce that my work is featured in the current issue of Vegan Lifestyle Magazine based out of the UK. Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured alongside the article. Issue 42 is available for download at: http://www.veganlifestylemagazine.com/.
Progress shot of my painting for the upcoming Coaster Show 2017 at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. Now that I can officially announce it, this will be one of the pieces I have in the exhibit. It is an acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo. The show opens September 1st with a gallery reception from 8-11pm.
Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home. It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see. So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.
These are a few photos from opening night for the “Face to Face” exhibition at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Artists represented by the gallery as well as a few new artists have created their own interpretation of portraiture, ranging from the traditional to the abstract. The show is up now through July 29th, so there’s still time to see the exhibit.
I’ve just finished both paintings previously featured while in progress. Pervasive and Sentiencewill both be on exhibit for the opening at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans tomorrow (June 3, 2017). Pervasive has been a long time in the making. I’m sometimes asked if living in Louisiana affects my work. Given that my work deals with the welfare of our planet, many of the issues that Louisiana faces (habitat loss, flooding, BP oil spill, hurricanes) are something that I cover but on more of a global scale. Pervasive is one of the most direct pieces I’ve done, focusing on the conservation of Louisiana wildlife and wetlands. The BP oil spill not only affected the wildlife of Louisiana, but it continues to affect the wildlife of rest of the world to this day as bird and sea animals continue to migrate. It may be asking a lot of a painting, but I hope that it has a big impact.
Sentience was specifically created for the “Face to Face” exhibit opening at LeMieux Galleries. The exhibit features a range of interpretations of portraiture. In Sentience, the butterflies represent the beauty and fragility of life, while the third eye represents enlightenment. The eye is a human eye, referring to the fact that we are all members of the animal kingdom, and can see a bit of ourselves in the personalities of other animals. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″wide by 6″high.
Both paintings will be on view tomorrow, June 3rd for the opening reception from 6-8pm. The exhibit will remain up through July 29th, 2017.
While working on my pelican painting, I had another project come up. Here is a sneak peek of the work in progress- more will be revealed soon. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. In the meantime, check out more paintings from this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
A few photos of my current painting in progress. I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high. These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.
