New Work

“Vestige” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 12″ x 12″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’m so happy to announce my finished painting, Vestige.  It features a grizzly bear atop old cars in a junkyard.  Flowers grow out of his back as a reminder of the connection of all life forms and also serving as a symbol of a vestige of nature among waste.

When I was a child, I diligently worked on a book I was “writing” about animals (it mostly consisted of drawings). My thinking was that if they were good enough illustrations, people would then care about animals as much as I did.  I still feel the same today- paint animals so that people will care about them, see them, really see them, for who they are, all part of this Earth.

While working on this painting, I’ve been focused on how much gets sent to landfills, creating a new “landscape” in which trees are removed and replaced with garbage. It has even inspired a recycling fiend such as myself to discover new ways to reduce and reuse.

Vestige is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 12″ high.  You can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/vestige.html.

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.

Room of a Thousand Doors

Painting in progress by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow.  I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take).  The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me.  This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks.  It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″  The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.
