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 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.

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.
I’ve been diligently working on a new painting in my In Our Veins series. I have not decided on a name yet, but it is a representation of the connection of all life to the natural world. The first layer of paint has been roughed in and I’m currently working on the horse, adding color, depth, and detail to the muscles and veins. It is an acrylic on canvas, 20″ wide by 10″ high.

I’ve recently finished a new painting in my In Our Veins series. The title is Bridge and it is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. Bridge features two mountain rams, linking them to the mountains, serving as a bridge connecting all of nature. View the painting online here: http://amyguidry.com/bridge.html.
Evolution of another painting I currently have in progress. It started out as just a little sketch on the corner of an envelope (because you never know when inspiration will strike.) Then the initial rough layer of paint on canvas and a close-up detail of a ram in progress. Acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” I’ll post the finished painting soon- in the meantime, the rest of this series can be found here.
