The Coaster Show, which I am participating in, officially opens tonight at La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. Yay! LA Magazine did a preview about the exhibit and selected one of my pieces (Reflection) as one of the featured artworks. Read the article and check out a sample of the works featured here: http://www.yaylamag.com/coasting-its-way-into-your-heart/.
The show opens tonight from 8-11pm and will be up through September 27th (with a closing party that day from Noon to 6pm).
I thought I should try something new and share a commissioned painting I did recently. I don’t have any posted here and I usually don’t post them on my website anymore since my portrait section is a bit overloaded. Well, on the verge, at least. But I always keep a photo of the work I’ve done even if I don’t have room for it on my site. So I’m taking the opportunity to post it here for the first time.
I was asked by a friend of another collector to do a painting of her three children. So she wanted to get a painting done of them at the beach. (Hence the background.) I think this was originally going to be a surprise gift, but ended up being an early gift instead. Anyway, this is a 20″ x 24″ painting which is more of a medium-size given the range I work with. The tutu, though challenging, was kind of fun in a sick way. I like to torment myself and fuss over every little detail, but it’s usually worth it for the end result.
If you’re new to my work, or just haven’t seen my portraits, you can check out my Portrait section of my website at www.AmyGuidry.com. And of course you can find the rest of my work there as well.
