Just finished this small painting from my In Our Veins series. Cohaereo, which is Latin for connected, is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ by 4.” The rabbit wears a collar of roses atop an exposed heart. The heart on the outside of the body serves as a reminder of our shared biology with all of life. The butterflies are a metaphor for life in that both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/Cohaereo.html.
Working on a few paintings at the moment- this small painting is currently in progress. I’ll be revealing the finished piece in my upcoming newsletter next week. (Sign up here for the first look at the finished painting.) This tiny bunny wears a collar of roses atop a giant heart. The butterflies represent life- both are beautiful, fragile, and ephemeral. It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.
A little preview of something I’m working on for an upcoming exhibit. The theme deals with animal spirits, which I was all set to paint a bear for this one and then had a strong inclination to paint a lion at the last minute (because I’m a Leo??). I also felt like I should go for a more monochromatic look- close to, at least. This is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” I’ll be posting more info about the exhibit closer to time. Until then, check out more of this series here: https://amyguidry.com/gallery.html.
In anticipation of the exhibition I have coming up, I’m sharing my finished painting, Transformation. This piece was created for Wow X Wow’s second online exhibition, “Room of a Thousand Doors.” It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ by 6.” The exhibition opens this Friday, September 1st, 7PM BST through September 22, 2017. In the meantime, view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/transformation.html. Email sales(at)wowxwow(dot)com with any inquiries.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve been invited to participate in the upcoming “Room of a Thousand Doors” exhibit being held by Wow X Wow. I’ve been working on a new painting for this show, taking it in a slightly different direction (inspired by the theme of many paths to take). The intense, dark leafy background is a new approach for me. This is a progress shot of my painting- I’ll be revealing more over the next couple of weeks. It’s an acrylic on canvas, 6″ x .6″ The exhibit will be held online via Wow X Wow, opening September 1st 7pm BST.
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.
I’ve just recently framed these small paintings from my In Our Veins series. I feel like the frames take them to a whole other level. Connected and Union are both acrylic on cardstock, 4″ tondo and the framed images are 5 1/2″ wide by 6 3/8″ high. Both are currently available for $100 each. If you can see this in your home, contact me to purchase at https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
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.”
