Due to shelter at home orders, I have a couple of online-only exhibitions going on at the moment. These three paintings have found new homes: Woven and Intricate are both part of LeMieux Galleries’ Petite LeMieux exhibition, and Arise is part of Krause Gallery’s charity art exhibition benefiting Meals on Wheels.
Revealing my latest painting Revere. This piece was created for Gristle Art Gallery’s Birds of Paradise exhibition. Revere features a female red-tailed black cockatoo which have yellow spots (males are solid black) so I took the liberty of painting them metallic gold. The angled second photo shows the metallic sheen a bit more. Big thanks to whomever brought this one home! Revere is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high.
Krause Gallery in New York is currently having an online charity art exhibition benefiting the elderly.

My painting Transcendental has found a new home. This piece was created as part of Modern Eden Gallery’s Familiar: The Spirit Animal in Contemporary Art exhibition. This piece utilized “butterfly eyes” as several other paintings and has a nearly monochromatic theme. It is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/transcendental.html .
Finishing up the little leaves in this painting. The emperor gum moth is done as well. They are native to Australia and this one is a male (males have more “feathery” antennae). This is a cropped view of the painting, which total size is 6″ wide by 6″ high. Acrylic on canvas. If you would like to know when this one is finished, sign up for my newsletter on my website: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html .
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.
Making some good progress on my lynx painting. Still needs whiskers but his face is just about done. This is a cropped view of the painting which is 6″ wide by 6″ high in total. Acrylic on canvas.
