Out with the Old in with the New

There are not too many days left this year where I can open the studio door and let in the fresh, clean, warm air. So today was a perfect day for getting the studio re-organized and rearranged for winter use.
In the summer I like to be near my sliding glass doors for the sunlight but in the winter it can get too cold to paint in that spot. So I must move the work tables and easels etc..away from the glass and closer to the wall that my wood stove heat can reach.
I also noticed that my resident orchids are not at all happy next to the window anymore so they will also be moved to a warmer location for the winter.
I am going through all the old clutter and special things that needed dusting… getting rid of the dust bunnies & cobwebs. I am putting away paintings I have been looking at for too long and left their spaces empty to be replaced with new or work in progress…. I have another day or two of cleaning, organizing, and moving but when it’s will also feel like a brand new place to work. Renewed!

My goal is that when it is finished it will support the new person I have grown into this last year and the new work that I am creating. Out with the old….In with the new!

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
