Coalescence

“Coalescence” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 6″ wide by 6″ high; Sold; (c) Amy Guidry 2019

Revealing my latest finished painting Coalescence. This piece features an emperor gum moth and Eurasian lynx (one of four species of lynx cats). They were nearly driven to extinction in Switzerland but were reintroduced so the population is small but stable. They are still critically endangered in other areas, though. The connection of the leaves, moth, and lynx represent the connection of all flora and fauna. Acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.

VENERABLE

“Venerable” by Amy Guidry; Acrylic on canvas; 4″ x 4″; Sold; (c) Amy Guidry 2019

Finished this small painting for a collector recently. The title is Venerable and it is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. Did you know that sharks are older than trees? Sharks have been in existence for 400 million years, surviving 4 global mass extinctions. The earliest species of what we would classify as a tree existed 350 million years ago. Given the negative association with sharks, I wanted to create a painting that emphasized their importance in the balance of nature. It’s when things are out of balance that we have problems. The recent upsurge in shark attacks is actually linked to climate change. As waters are becoming warmer, they become more hospitable to larger, more diverse shark populations, and allow for sharks to move into areas that were previously “shark-free.” This is just one reason why it is imperative that we make responsible choices and shrink our carbon footprint now rather than later.
