I’ve been painting a few big cats lately (I’ve been a fan since I was a little kid) and am happy to see some find new homes. Bestow and Interconnect have both gone to the West Coast- Seattle and Los Angeles. Both paintings are acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high.
I’m happy to reveal my new painting for Cactus Gallery’s The Revival exhibition. It’s titled Renew and is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high. The theme of the show deals with life, death, rebirth, and regrowth through natural imagery which is very much in line with my work. Renew is in keeping with my ongoing series, In Our Veins, which explores the connections of all life forms and the cycle of life. Each animal, and each plant, serves a role in the life cycle, together forming the delicate balance of nature. The human third eye in this piece refers to our connection to all of nature, while the vines refer to the cyclical process of sustenance, the transfer of energy, and renewal. You can view Renew on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/renew.html. For sales, contact the gallery director Sandra Mastroianni at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-801-8669.
