I must be feeling guilty about my blog abandonment since I’ve got two posts in one week… So here it is, the latest painting of my “New Realm” series. Not even on the website yet! Consider this a sneak preview that only my blog readers are in the know about. Feeling special yet? Okay, okay, so here are the details. The title is “Liberty” and this is another large piece since it is 36″ wide by 48″ high. And as per usual, it is an acrylic on canvas. This piece features the purple butterflies from many of the other paintings in the series. I thought of this one as an extension of “Release” which also features the purple butterflies seen from above. This painting will be part of my solo exhibition this October at Galerie Lafayette in downtown Lafayette, LA. If you’re in the area, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to see these paintings in person. The photo here does not do the piece justice. Anyway, if you’d like to find out more about my upcoming exhibits, sign up for my newsletter under my website contact page. And while you’re there, check out the rest of my work- www.AmyGuidry.com.
Two pieces to mention from the New Realm series. These are 5″ x 5″ paintings from the aptly titled, New Realm 5 x 5 series. Both paintings feature the heroine of the story as well as the butterflies. The top piece is titled “Daybreak.” This was fairly time-consuming given all the butterflies in the painting. However, I was rather happy with the outcome, so well worth the challenge.
The bottom piece is titled “Morning.” This is also part of the 5 x 5 series. This painting stems from the large New Realm piece, “Renewal.” Both have the same concept behind them- that of change, a new day, a fresh start.
Both of these new paintings will be featured in my upcoming solo exhibition at the Schepis Museum in Columbia, LA next month. The entire New Realm series, including the 5 x 5 series will be on exhibit.
