"Interdependent" by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 4" x 4"; SOLD; (c) Amy Guidry 2012

One of my more recent paintings has found a new home in time for Valentine’s Day.  Interdependent is one of the small works from my In Our Veins series and is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4″ square.  This series deals with the life cycle and the impact that each species has on one another, which is represented in Interdependent.  The roots of the tree have a vaguely similar texture and color as the deer antlers, so I took liberty in morphing them together to illustrate the connection of all life forms.  The butterflies, as seen in several paintings in this series, are a metaphor for life and our mortality.  They are beautiful, delicate, and fragile, and here for a short time, reminding us that life is precious.
