This is a little sneak preview (closeup) of my painting recently created for an upcoming exhibit. I’m happy to share that my painting will be featured as part of “Familiar: The Spirit Animal in Contemporary Art” at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California. The exhibit opens Friday, November 3rd with a gallery reception from 6-9pm. The exhibit will remain up through December 1st, 2017. I’ll be sharing the finished painting in its entirety soon.
I’ve just finished a small painting that I recently posted while in progress. It is the latest addition to my In Our Veins series. The title is Realize and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. I was inspired to create this one after finishing Sentience. In Realize, the eye that is featured is a human eye which refers to our connection to all other animals. View it online here: https://amyguidry.com/realize.html.
Something you may not know about me:
I like to work in my studio alone. It helps me focus, especially when I’m working on a more challenging aspect of a painting. I do have “roommates,” though, and occasionally a cat will be asleep on my lap while I paint. These moments are short, as cats tend to change their sleeping areas throughout the day, but has become an almost daily occurrence. So this is a photo from my vantage point behind the easel.
