Home Sweet Home

I work in a studio out of my home in this sweet little artist cottage located in the scenic hills of Western Mass. I am booking studio visits for November please email if you are interested in visiting and getting a preview of my new paintings in progress.

"Anything is Possible" ~ Done!

Although this painting was started and almost finished while at Vermont Studio this July, I put on a few final touches of paint and finished it a few weeks later. It is called "Anything is Possible" an oil on paper mounted on board. The last few weeks have been about building custom cradle boards for it and several other pieces to mount on . I mounted this one last week and today I did the final coat of Galkyd to seal it. This painting sold during the first studio visit I had following my residency in August. I am happy to deliver it next week with the two other paintings that sold with it. I will post photos of the others on delivery day.
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.
