"Awakening" by Amy Guidry; acrylic on canvas; 48"w x 24"h; (c) Amy Guidry 2011; SOLD

Another New Realm painting has found a new home.  Awakening is one of the earlier paintings from the series and is one of the largest at 48″ wide by 24″ high.  The single butterfly represents growth and freedom, themes that are heavily present in this series.  As stated on my website, New Realm challenges the antiquated views of women as often seen in fairy tales.  Using a surreal backdrop, it is a modern tale which presents the heroine as a strong and courageous woman.  I’m also happy to say that several paintings from this series will be included in a upcoming exhibition featuring works from early in my career to the present.  More details on that closer to time.  Meanwhile, you can check out this series as well as a closeup of Awakening at
