I have to admit it's a bit hard for me to part with this piece (it is currently being stored on my wall).  Layers and layers, and scraping and scraping result in a painting of pure energy with a life force all its own.  If you're thinking of selecting a statement piece to decorate around or have a room that needs that "wow" piece, this painting has the power to transform. Painted on a hand built wooden surface, the painting has deep edges which are sanded clean revealing the wood grain. It comes ready to hang, horizontally or vertically.

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.
