In Progress

Painting in progress by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

Another painting in progress.  Forced to take a break from my larger pelican painting courtesy of my easel.  It decided to break (while in the middle of painting), so I am currently waiting on the replacement part to come in.  So in the meantime, I decided to work on a small painting I’ve been wanting to do anyway.  This piece is in keeping with my Cor and Corporis paintings, featuring rabbits with exposed organs or bones as a reminder that animals are all living, sentient beings.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.”

In Progress

A few photos of my current painting in progress.  I have not decided on a title yet, but can say that it is an acrylic on canvas, 10″ wide by 20″ high.  These are a few shots of the beginning stages taking it from a sketch on paper to the first few layers of paint, focusing on the sky.

New Work

“Encroach” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ x 6″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017
“Reciprocal” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’ve recently finished two new paintings in my In Our Veins series.  Encroach is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.”  It serves as a subtle commentary on human intervention in nature while illustrating the connection of the natural world to all life.  Reciprocal is the latest addition to the smaller series of paintings within In Our Veins.  It is also an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.”  Reciprocal conveys the connection to nature by linking flora and fauna and uses the ribbon to continue the recent theme exploring anonymity versus connection.

I’m excited to reveal my painting for the upcoming “Lover’s Eye” exhibit at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, CA.  I was invited to create a piece for this show as a modern take on the late 17th Century practice of painting the eye of a loved one to wear as jewelry.  My painting, Insight, is an acrylic on paper, 10″ wide by 7¾” high framed (image size 6″ x 4″).  The exhibit opens Friday, February 3rd with a gallery reception from 6-9pm.  The show will remain up through February 25, 2017.

New Work

“Indispensable” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 20″w x 10″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2017

I’m happy to say that I’ve just finished Indispensable (the large painting of the horse).  This piece has been in the works for a few months, granted I had a couple of projects pop up as I was invited to do them, but this is one of my larger paintings.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high.  Indispensable connects a mountain landscape with a horse, representing the connection of all life while keeping with a recent theme exploring the question of anonymity versus connection.  View it online here: https://amyguidry.com/indispensable.html.

I also finished a couple of small paintings I’d been wanting to do.  Cor and Corporis (Latin for heart and body, respectively) are acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4.”  Both feature rabbits  and are complimentary paintings that work as a pair or as individual pieces, both using ribbon to connect to either the ribcage or the heart.  Seeing these organs and bones serves as a reminder of the biological similarities of all sentient beings.  View them online here: https://amyguidry.com/corporis.html   and here: https://amyguidry.com/cor.html.
