I recently came across this study from my New Realm series. This is the only available drawing from the series as it was done as I was working out my approach to the larger painting Was It a Dream?, but with the lace work as seen in other paintings throughout the series. This study is pencil on cold-pressed watercolor paper, 9” wide by 9” high (5″ x 5″ image size).
One of my paintings from my New Realm series has recently found a new home. The painting is titled Acceptance and is one of my largest paintings at 48″ wide by 36″ high. View more paintings from the series here: http://amyguidry.com/beginning.html.
My New Realm series was recently featured on Artsy Forager. Editor Lesley Frenz writes “…There’s been talk of women’s rights, gender equality, etc. It seems as women, we still struggle against the fairy tales we grow up with versus the reality of living as a contemporary female. In her New Realm series, Louisiana artist Amy Guidry weaves a new kind of story, as surreal as any myth yet grounded in modern strength.” View online at this direct link: http://artsyforager.com/2012/12/17/amy-guidry/.
