I hadn’t mentioned this sale before on my blog, but I thought it would be a great time to do so since one of my inspirations is having an opening next month. One of my earlier series consisted of portraits and figure work, this being one of those paintings. I was (and still am) a big fan of Philip Pearlstein’s work, and thought of his nudes when painting this piece (except sans the various objects in the background, since my focus was on closeup views of the faces and figures). As it turns out, Mr. Pearlstein is having an opening November 4th at Betty Cunningham Gallery in New York. Judging by the title of the show, it will consist of all new paintings, too.
So my homage to Philip Pearlstein has sold. But if you are in the area, you can see why I am such a fan of his work by checking out his show at Betty Cunningham, which will be up through Dec. 11th. And if you’d like to see more of my work, be sure to visit www.AmyGuidry.com.
