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.
Closeup shot of the progress on my latest painting. Finished the flowers, currently working on the bear’s fur. With all that hair, I’m going through a lot of tiny paintbrushes on this piece! This painting is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ by 12.” Hoping to finish this one soon and reveal the finished piece. Get the first look at the finished painting by signing up for my monthly newsletter here: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
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.
My painting Systems from the In Our Veins series has recently found a new home. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x 6.” I had posted a progress shot of this piece awhile back showing where I had left off with it. I put this one on hiatus for over 2 years before revisiting it and finally completing it. Sometimes it just takes a step back to suddenly see everything clearly. View the finished painting online here: www.amyguidry.com/systems.html.
I’ve recently finished another new painting in the In Our Veins series. It’s titled Tree of Life and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 6″ high. The idea for this one was from one of my earlier sketches, though I modified it a bit and added the moths. View the painting online here: www.amyguidry.com/tree-of-life.html.
I’ve added a new painting to my In Our Veins series, which also quickly found a new home after featuring it in my recent newsletter. Nurture is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4.” Nurture comes from one of my original sketches for this series and was perfect for the smaller canvas size. I comb through my sketchbooks on a regular basis looking over ideas I’ve saved and reworking others. I’d say about 95% of the paintings I do come from sketches I’ve created well in advance since I typically work on one painting at a time, hence the need to save ideas in my sketchbook.
My New Realm series was recently featured on Artsy Forager. Editor Lesley Frenz writes “…There’s been talk of women’s rights, gender equality, etc. It seems as women, we still struggle against the fairy tales we grow up with versus the reality of living as a contemporary female. In her New Realm series, Louisiana artist Amy Guidry weaves a new kind of story, as surreal as any myth yet grounded in modern strength.” View online at this direct link: http://artsyforager.com/2012/12/17/amy-guidry/.
I’m a little behind in posting but my work was recently featured on Adondelaviste. Several paintings from my In Our Veins series are featured and as translated on the page, it states: “Her fascinating work introduces us to a surrealist and eclectic world, where the animal kingdom, nature and men interact in intriguing scenes.” View online at this direct link: http://adondelaviste.tumblr.com/post/38944655117/amy-guidry.
