After a short break, I did end up painting another 4″ x 4″ panel piece from my New Realm series. This one is “Butterflies” and features the red and black butterflies seen throughout the series. I kept the composition rather simple given the small size of the panel. These panels are great. I found them one day while getting art supplies. They’re so darn cute and very smooth. Works wonders when doing tiny detail work (which is rather often for me…) so I do like working with them. I do like canvas, too, though, so I won’t ever give that up.

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.

I’ve had a lot of positive response to my New Realm series, and of course everybody has their favorites in the bunch. One of my personal favorites happens to be a popular piece among viewers of my shows and of my website. It may even be your favorite- “Adaptation.” While this painting is rather large (4 feet tall and 3 feet wide), I have come up with a smaller solution that may soon be a new favorite. I found some 4″ x 4″ panels that I just fell in love with- great texture to work with, especially for small details, and the size is just too darn cute. So I have taken the beloved fish character and featured him in a 4 inch panel painting. I’ve aptly titled it “Transition.” To view more of my work you can also visit my website at www.AmyGuidry.com.
Lots going on this week, so I am posting yet again. Making up for lost time, right? I have a new painting finished. It is from the New Realm series. It’s called “Renewal” and it is 48″ x 24.” This will be in my upcoming solo exhibition at the Schepis Museum in Columbia, LA.
The piece features the heroine of the series as well as the butterflies, albeit in their cocoon stage. One of the butterflies does break free from the cocoon. Dew drops are interspersed on the branch as well. The cocoons and the dew drops represent morning, or renewal, the start of a something new.
