In Progress

Painting in progress by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 12″ x 12″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

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.

New Painting

“Cohaereo” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

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.

In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status.  Sad, but fitting.  700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and  to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding.  Our priorities need to change.  So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece.  We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered.  I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.

Art at Home

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.
