"United States of Consumerism" by Amy Guidry; 2007; acrylic on canvas; 30"w x 24"h; (c) Amy Guidry 2012; SOLD

Happy 2012!  This is my first post for the New Year…funny it’s regarding my last sale of the past year.  My painting United States of Consumerism has just been added to a fantastic local collection of art.  This painting was done in 2007 as part of a series of social commentary works, Beneath the Surface.  It is an acrylic on canvas, 24″ high by 30″ wide.  A couple of my artist friends thought I was nuts to take on such a piece since I painted each and every dollar bill and penny on there.  No stamps, no gimmicks.  By the time I finished, all my tiny little paintbrushes had splayed bristles and were completely unusable.  I also had to put in some long hours to finish it in time for an exhibition.  Regardless, I was happy with the outcome.  The photos just don’t do it justice, but you can view a larger image of it here.
