Two of my paintings are currently in the “Holiday Miniatures Show” going on at LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Bridge and Clear-Cut are both acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high, $450 each. Both are small paintings from my current series In Our Veins. The exhibition is going on now through December 29, 2018. Purchase inquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org or 504-522-5988.
I’ve recently finished three new paintings in my In Our Veins series. Two of which are from my smaller, 4″ by 4″ paintings. I was particularly interested in doing a piece on forest clear-cutting because it is the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of global warming. The smaller paintings, Inseparable and Evanescence, are in reference to the connection of all life, which is the overarching theme of this series.

Well, this is it. This is the last time Mother Nature will be on view to the public. It is currently on exhibit in the “Animus” exhibit in London, and afterwards will have its permanent home in London. This painting has been an important piece for me since it is the only painting I’ve done directly dealing with dairy:
Our use of animals and the environment has led to practices that could be considered a bizarre perversion of nature. From our everyday use to the most complex scientific discoveries, we have created a new world far removed from that of our original planet. Our food is no longer something we grow or find ourselves, but prepackaged, processed, and mass-produced. ‘Natural’ has become unnatural. We consider it eccentric or bohemian. We, as adults, drink what is essentially breast milk from an entirely different species, yet scoff at the idea of a woman breastfeeding her infant in public. In Mother Nature a calf is seen nursing from a human breast, calling to question our double standards- if this is bizarre, then why is it not when the roles are reversed?
I have just recently finished a new addition to my In Our Veins series. This painting is titled Crutch and is 12″ wide by 6″ high, acrylic on canvas. You may recall seeing my photos of this painting in progress. To say the water was time-consuming is an understatement. This is one of only a handful of paintings in which I’ve painted water. View the painting online (and much larger) here: http://amyguidry.com/crutch.html.
Making some headway on my current painting. This is a new piece to be added to my In Our Veins series. I’ve roughed everything in with the first layer of paint and have finished the sky. The ocean is currently being worked on, adding detail along the way. I’ll be posting the finished piece here soon (hopefully!)- in the meantime, view the series online here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html.
I’ve been diligently working on a new painting for my In Our Veins series. This is the outline sketch on canvas before adding layer upon layer of paint. The size is 12″ wide by 6″ high. I’ll be adding more photos here soon, in the meantime, view the remaining series online here: http://amyguidry.com/wild_west.html.
I wanted to share one of my latest paintings from my “In Our Veins” series. The title is “Mother Nature” and it is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x 6.” This is one of the more overtly vegan paintings from the series. I’m disturbed by the fact that humans are willing to drink what is “breast milk” even though they are adults (and it’s not even from their own species!). Yuck. It’s no wonder so many people are lactose-intolerant… because it’s not natural! I wanted to create a piece around this concept, ironically naming it “Mother Nature” because there is nothing natural about it. That said, I have a few pics of my process to share. You can see the finished piece on my website at this link: www.AmyGuidry.com- Mother Nature.
