Artist Alicia Dunn says her intention for this gently rolling abstract hillside was to convey the tranquil and relaxing feeling of the picturesque northern California landscape. "It is a landscape painting to become lost in." A soft pastel palette of blue, green, purple, yellow and pink fill the scene, conveying fast-moving clouds and dappled sunlight. A wide open expanse of hills and sky.
Mill Valley, California
Alicia Dunn’s abstract paintings are affected by a confluence of elements: the weather, her mood, and the properties of her materials. “Ceding control to these things allows the magic to happen,” the artist explains. Alicia's paintings capture the unique energy of nature, particularly that of the beach where she lives. Staring into the tranquil and luminous colors of her work, the viewer connects to shape of the waves, the swiftness of the wind, and the beginning of a day. Alicia is inspired by the simple things in life. Her awe of nature’s perfection and the thrill of constant discovery are conveyed in her art. Alicia works in water-based acrylic paint, and has developed a technique using blending gels to achieve not only rich color and texture, but also an eroded, weathered effect that reflects the process of the painting’s creation. Like nature itself, each painting shifts with the viewer, chronicling time through movement and beauty.

I just received your painting Vintage/Modern and absolutely love it! The color, texture and finish are all beautiful and I especially like the wooden box it's painted on...the wood and its dimensional feel led me to purchase your work. Thank you so much!- D Roth
