My new painting Integrate is now finished. This is the latest piece in my In Our Veins series. Integrate features an African serval with a similarly colored and patterned Resh cicada. The combination of the two with a human eye represents the connection of all of nature. Integrate is an acrylic on canvas, 6” wide by 6” high. You can view the painting online here: https://amyguidry.com/integrate.html.
Another cropped detail view of my current painting in progress. Working on the Megatibicen Resh cicada at the moment. Megatibicen Resh, commonly known as the Resh cicada, is one of several types of cicadas that can be found in Louisiana. This was one that I had discovered after he was already deceased. After laying him to rest in my backyard garden, he can now live on in a painting at least. The total size of this painting is 6″ wide by 6″ high, acrylic on canvas. As previously mentioned, this piece will be revealed soon, so if you would like to know as soon as it is finished, sign up for my monthly newsletter here: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html (just click the newsletter icon).
