Time is flying by.........

The time has been flying by!  I apologize for underestimating the time it would take to finish my rewards. There have been a few obstacles that have taken me by surprise and have pushed back my timeline. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

 Rewards Update: 

I had the last bunch of coasters cut this week after  having some problems with the wood splitting in the previous batch.  I am sanding them now and will seal and paint them over the next two weeks.  I have just 6 more sets to do.

 5x7 works on paper:
The paper has been cut to size and 75% of the xerox transfers are done.  The next step has been to seal them with clear gesso which I hope to be finished with this weekend.  Once they are all processed, (about 50 of them!) I will start with the color flourishes and send them out as I finish them. 

The 8x10's and eye portraits:
I am estimating that the coasters will need 2 weeks and that the 50, 5x7 paintings will take a little over a month to paint. Then I will be on to the 8x10's and the eye portraits. I will update you as I get closer to working on them.  My goal is to complete this project during the spring.

Thanks again for your wonderful support and patience!  I look forward to completing the rewards and sending you a beautiful token of my appreciation.

Beginning in the UK in 2012 this global arts collaboration and exhibition will be touring the world annually. Connecting new artists, exhibitors, galleries and the public alike.
Artists will exhibit their original artworks and each work exhibited will form part of the collaborative work thus creating “The Omnia Scroll” an ever increasing, continually growing work of art, images transferred onto silk fabric cotton canvas panels which will be connected and embroidered with gold thread.

The Omnia Scroll and Exhibitions explore the interconnectedness of all things (Latin for all things is Omnia), with each other and our planet.

The theme of the exhibition to promote positive connections and explore the visual interpretations of each artist, in doing so increasing connections to a wider audience and to each other.

From each original exhibited artwork, a print of which will be transferred onto fabric panels, each artwork creating and becoming a piece of a whole new one, “The Omnia Scroll” will be exhibited alongside the originals. As each exhibition takes place and grows so does The Omnia Scroll, one piece of art, many artists creations, continually evolving.

Two thousand years ago, “Omnia vivunt, omnia inter se conexa.” Everything is alive; everything is interconnected!” Cicero, Roman Philosopher.

The Omnia Scroll now consists of 36 different artists amazing art & 4 panels so far of the Scroll being the growing collaborative work...artists from all around the world.
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.
