I’m happy to reveal my finished painting Delicate. It is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s insect-themed “Killing Jar” exhibition which is going on now through November 24th. Delicate features a stag beetle whose body is patterned in lace. Insects are often feared, but the lace body serves as a reminder to their diminutive size and delicate beauty. You can view the painting on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/delicate.html.
Sharing a couple of progress photos of a new painting for Gristle Art Gallery’s upcoming “Killing Jar” exhibition. This insect-themed group exhibit opens October 20th at Gristle Art Gallery in New York. I can’t reveal the finished painting yet, but these are some sneak previews of my piece while it was in progress. The title is Delicate, which refers to the delicate beauty of the stag beetle. It is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. The finished piece will be revealed soon. In the meantime, you can view more work from this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
After a short break, I did end up painting another 4″ x 4″ panel piece from my New Realm series. This one is “Butterflies” and features the red and black butterflies seen throughout the series. I kept the composition rather simple given the small size of the panel. These panels are great. I found them one day while getting art supplies. They’re so darn cute and very smooth. Works wonders when doing tiny detail work (which is rather often for me…) so I do like working with them. I do like canvas, too, though, so I won’t ever give that up.
