One of my little bunny paintings is finished and now online. This painting is titled Praesidio, which is Latin for protection. Praesidio is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. This piece has a new home already, but if you would like to stay informed of new paintings in progress, sign up for my monthly newsletter on my website here: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.
Progress photo of a new painting in the works. Sometimes I take artistic license with my subjects if they don’t quite fit what I had in mind. Such as this spider, which aside from the obvious (abdomen), doesn’t actually exist. So I looked at several spiders and created this one. This piece is an acrylic on canvas, 5″ wide by 5″ high. If you would like to know when the finished painting is online, sign up for my newsletter on my website: https://amyguidry.com/contact.html.

I’m happy to reveal my painting Woven which was created for WOW x WOW’s MicroVisions 2 exhibition. Every plant, animal, and insect 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. The leaves extending from the eye, weaving around the privet hawk moth’s antennae, connect us to all flora and fauna. Woven is an acrylic on canvas, 5” wide by 5” high, available online here: https://amyguidry.com/woven.html. The exhibition is open now through May 24th, 2019.

The finished piece will be announced 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).

Another painting from my In Our Veins series will have a new home. Symbiotic is an acrylic on canvas, 11″w x 14″h. There is a good bit of history to this piece- for starters, it comes from one of the original sketches I did in the early stages of the series. Because I do these sketches while I am currently working on other paintings, it can be quite some time before they come to fruition. Needless to say, I have lived with the concept for Symbiotic for awhile. Also, it was this year’s Best of Show winner in the Surreal Salon held at the Baton Rouge Gallery Center for Contemporary Art. As a result of my win, it was featured in ads in both Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose magazine. I’m happy that it will be in good hands and joining a fantastic collection of work.
More good press this week- I had a nice surprise this morning when I discovered my painting for “The Great West Coast Migration” traveling exhibit is featured on Hi-Fructose. Over 100 artists have come together to support PangeaSeed’s conservation and preservation efforts for sharks and oceans in Japan and beyond. The exhibit will travel to galleries along the West Coast starting this Friday (the 13th- eek!) at Roq la Rue in Seattle.
