Cover Art for The Pioneer Valley News Magazine

I am just about finished with my new painting Spring Birches/ Spring Mana which is a 24x36" oil on cradle board. Although the finishing touches still need to be done I was invited last minute to submit a Spring time painting for the cover of the May/ June issue of the magazine The Pioneer Valley News and they loved it. It comes out Friday so keep your eyes open for a copy!

Here is some information about the magazine;
The Pioneer Valley News is a free bi-monthly newsmagazine featuring stories by talented
local writers and artists,with a distribution of 5,000 to Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden Counties, MA and beyond.

Founded in 2010, its purpose is to challenge the established press by engaging area citizens who live and work in the area to discover their experience and open up dialogue to develop positive changes in their communities when it is needed. We believe news shoud be used as and instrument for the people, not line the pockets of media moguls and their lackeys. This was not what the press was ever intended to be, but unfortunately, this is our reality today. If you feel this way, please join us!

This is the cover proof.

Good for you, Alicia!
So glad your lovely birches survived the ravages of the past two winters...
You captured them beautifully.

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.
