The winter rains in Southern California have made for a tumultuous Pacific Ocean. After a storm and as  the water is trying to find a peaceful ebb, the moonlight hits it just so, and the effect is mind blowing. This painting tries to capture that moment. It is vibrant and alive with pure color, light and movement. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Alicia

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.
