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.

New Small Works

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

I’ve added two new small paintings to the In Our Veins series.  One was previously posted in progress.  Both were featured in my recent newsletter and have each found new homes in Louisiana and Florida.  Spiritus, which is Latin for breath, continues with the theme of organs on the outside of the body as a reminder of our shared biology.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 4” wide by 4” high.  Perception, also an acrylic on canvas, refers to our understanding of nature and recognition of all sentient beings.  View each of them here: https://amyguidry.com/spiritus.html and here: https://amyguidry.com/perception.html.

In Progress

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.

Why Paint?

I like to paint.  There was a time when I was scared to paint, thinking I wouldn’t be any good at it.  I was used to drawing and liked the precision and control I had with it.  Paint seemed messy and unforgiving.  I can’t pinpoint exactly when I began to like painting.  I think gradually I just learned to be less critical of my results thus allowing me more opportunity to work with paint.  I like the tactile process of painting.  I like filling in each square inch of a canvas, transforming it from a white blank space into a story.  I like the toothy texture of the canvas.  I like the look of the paint as it spreads across and fills in each crevice.  I like the challenge of it even though it can be daunting.  I just really like to paint.

I have a new painting currently in progress.  This piece will be the latest addition to my In Our Veins series.  The background is fairly complex and won’t be what you’d expect either.  This is the original sketch on canvas, outlining the tiger and giving a very basic outline for the background.  The size is 8″ wide by 10″ high.  More details to be posted soon!
