In Progress

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.

Art at Home

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.

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

“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.

In Progress

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.

New work

“Dissociate” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 12″w x 6″h; (c) Amy Guidry 2015

I’ve recently finished some new work in my In Our Veins series.  Dissociate is an acrylic on canvas, 12″ wide by 6″ high.  Lately I’ve been exploring the “opposite” of many paintings in this series. Whereas in previous paintings, I relied on eyes and facial expressions to convey a sense of connection, these recent works show animals without faces or covered faces. Anonymity vs. connection- without seeing their faces, does that make them any less personable? Meaningful? And how does this apply on a global scale? These are some of the questions I’m working on with these and future paintings.

I’ve also finished a new small painting called Vision.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high.  Both paintings were featured in my September newsletter which went out earlier this week.  View them online here: http://amyguidry.com/dissociate.html and here: http://amyguidry.com/vision.html.
