A few of my small paintings in the In Our Veins series have recently found new homes in Louisiana and New York. A couple of them were just featured in my newsletter upon finishing. Circular and Vision are both acrylic on canvas, 4″ x 4″ and Conserve is also an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 4″ high.
These are the remaining small paintings in this series available:
Unite from my In Our Veins series has found a new home. This is one of the smaller paintings from the series, at 4″ wide by 4″ high, acrylic on canvas. Three paintings at this size are currently available:
Also of note- if you would like to see my work in person, I’ll be showing in the Main Gallery of the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette, LA as part of a 10-person exhibition called “Apocalypse Now.” The opening is this Saturday, October 10th from 6-9pm. The exhibit will remain up through January 9th.
I’ve just added a new painting to the In Our Veins series titled Vessel, and it is 4″ x 4,” acrylic on canvas, $100. It was created from a sketch I did three years ago (!) and just wasn’t able to incorporate it at the time. I was reminded of it when going through my sketchbooks the other day and found that it was perfect for this series. The moth, which I took artistic liberty with, represents life. It can be viewed as life either leaving the body or entering it, that is entirely up to the viewer. No matter how it is viewed, life is part of us for a certain period of time. It transitions from one living organism to the next. The body contains life- it is a vessel. To view a larger image, go to: www.amyguidry.com/vessel.html.
I get so many questions about my work ranging from simple to philosophical, so today I thought I’d post about one of the more fun ones. Sort of a Where’s Waldo post. So some of you have asked about the models I’ve used in my paintings, which have always been varied from series to series. However, there is one model that has been used for almost every body of work. If you’ve been following my work since the early days, you probably know the answer to this. Aside from using my own face, the next cheap and readily available model I know is my husband. Depending on the painting, some are an exact resemblance, some take artistic license, and some don’t even feature his face (i.e. Everything’s Coming Up Roses). So here are some of the paintings he has appeared in some form or another:
