My painting Sentience was recently featured in Art Galleries & Artists of the South Magazine as part of a spread on LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans. Sentience has also found a new home. This was the first of my “butterfly eyes” paintings. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. Sentience is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″high. You can view it online here: https://amyguidry.com/sentience.html and view more “butterfly eyes” paintings from the series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.

A few photos of my current painting in progress. I had started this painting just a few days before Grizzly bears were removed from Endangered Species status. Sad, but fitting. 700 bears in the wild is not a high number, especially if there is a major disaster, and to ensure no genetic mutations occur due to inbreeding. Our priorities need to change. So it’s fitting that I happened to choose a Grizzly as my subject for this piece. We are steadily creating desert landscapes full of our garbage- in this case, a junkyard of cars- as we clear out the natural habitat of so many species, many endangered. I used flowers growing out of the bear’s back as a reference to our connection to nature; this lone patch of flowers mirroring the small, shrinking natural landscape.
Sometimes I receive installation images from people after they’ve hung my work in their home. It’s always nice to see my work again and how it looks in its new space, plus if it’s been included in groupings of work by other artists, that’s always nice to see. So these are a few shots featuring paintings from my In Our Veins series and Beneath the Surface series.
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.
Progress shot of a new small painting I have in the works. This is a new addition to my In Our Veins series, part of the small works within the series. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” The finished piece will be posted soon. In the meantime, the rest of the series can be viewed here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
