Commission Delivered Today :-)

I delivered a commission today that I spent the last year painting.

It felt great to finish it and see the owner light up upon seeing it in final form for the first time.

A sense of freedom to move onto new projects was present for both of us.

When I returned home the painting's absence in the studio was palpable....the empty easel where it stood for the last year is waiting to be filled again. I get so much from the creative process, even the emptiness is good! Though this time the emptiness is fleeting, as I have lots of work going on right now and can use the space that has been created for those paintings.

Congrats! I love that painting! You are so very talented!

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.
