"It's a constant unfolding" ~Today's Greenfield Recorder Article

Above is today's Arts and Entertainment section of the Greenfield Recorder.
Trish Crapo a Leyden writer and photographer came to the studio last week to take photos and interview me about the Austria Residency.  This lovely article came out today.  I can't seem to find a link online so I took this photo of the paper. I will add the link in when I find it.

Other Studio News:
I have been pulling out work from the small storage area in my studio off and on all week to get ready for the Studio sale and I must say I have a lot to offer! 
Today the process was quickened as I had a surprise Pre-Sale studio visit from a regular collector.  I very happily sold two small works to go toward the Austria Residency Fund. I am that much closer now!
Lastly, my Kickstarter campain was approved!  Tomorrow I will do a last edit and get it launched! All and all a very good day!

D. Fleiss East West Artist Residency in Mallnitz, Austria

Wonderful News!  I have been officially invited by the
D. Fleiss East West Artists Foundation
to an artist residency and Symposia of Contemporary Art in Mallnitz, Austria this October.

After almost a year of confinement because of my broken leg accident, I can’t tell you how excited I am about the possibility of going to this residency.  There are some challenges ahead of me. First of all I must continue to improve my physical strength and stamina to allow me to travel confidently and to enjoy the time I will have creating and exploring in the Alps and secondly I must fundraise for the travel costs.   

I am planning a few different events to reach my travel goal of $4400.
I will be doing a Kickstarter project with great rewards for donors who would like to contribute online, A raffle of an original painting, and an Open Studio and Sale with lots of great deals on paintings with a large selection of small works offered for a steal and for the first time to the public. I will announce the dates soon.

I hope that I can find the support I need to make this incredible opportunity happen. I have my work cut out for me!

Other Studio Updates
I am excited to have my studio back and renovated to enhance my productivity.  I have been painting every day and am looking forward to putting my studio practice back in high gear.   I have started some new explorations which will solidify into a working vocabulary soon and am also working on some grant proposals as well.

Artist, Joyce Conlon stopped into the studio for a visit recently.
She was the first to see the new painting in progress that I am working on.  We had a wonderful conversation about painting and process.  It was a brilliant reminder that all things come in good time….and we must be open to let the work unfold through the process of creating it and to have a little fun while doing it too!
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.
