In Progress

Painting in progress (detail) by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I’m taking a break from my rainforest painting and currently working on another new painting for the upcoming “The Revival” exhibition at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.  This show explores life, death, rebirth and growth represented with natural imagery.  This is a close-up of the cheetah’s face and hair which I am currently “building” (seems like the best way to phrase it given the multiple layers of paint leading up to more and more refined line work).  This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.  The exhibit will open September 8th at Cactus Gallery.

New Painting

“Essence” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; $100; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I’ve just finished a new small painting in my In Our Veins series.  The title is Essence and it features a Southern white rhino.  They are one of two subspecies of white rhinoceros and one of the largest and heaviest land animals in the world.  Southern white rhinos are listed as Near Threatened due to habitat loss and poaching.  The butterflies in this piece represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral.  Essence is an acrylic on canvas, 4” wide by 4” high, $100 and currently available: https://amyguidry.com/essence.html.

In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  Focusing on the rainforest for this one, specifically the Amazon and its flora and fauna.  Also wanted to work on a larger piece, so this one is 20″ wide by 20″ high.  It’s heavily detailed courtesy of all the leaves and tree branches.  Not to mention full of white-faced capuchin monkeys!  The sketch on paper maps everything out before I transferred it to canvas.  The painting itself is an acrylic on canvas.  I’m still working on the rainforest background at the moment, and the blue morpho butterflies.  Butterflies may be small, but they are hugely symbolic in my work.

Ho’olaule’a

“Hope” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″w x 6″h; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2018

I was recently invited to create a piece for the upcoming “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opening at Cactus Gallery in Los Angeles.  The exhibit celebrates endangered species (Ho’olaule’a is Hawaiian for celebration), and I chose to paint the Ethiopian wolf.  Ethiopian wolves are the only wolf found in Africa.  They are the rarest species of dog in the world and the rarest carnivore in Africa.  There are less than 450 left in the wild.  They live in close-knit packs of 3-13 adults, but unusually for wolves, they hunt alone.  One of their biggest threats comes from habitat loss due to agriculture.

The title of my painting is Hope and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 6″ high.  The human third eye refers to our connection with nature: the we see ourselves in animals as well as seeing the world through their eyes.  The rainbow is a symbol of hope, hence the title, and serves to inspire us all to keep working towards a better future for all of nature.

The “Ho’olaule’a” exhibition opens this Saturday, May 12th, 6-9pm and will remain up through June 2nd.  More details here: https://cactusgalleryla.com/.  For pre-sales, contact Sandra at sandra@cactusgalleryla.com.
