First Light

by Alicia Zanoni Lawrence

Sunrises are always so symbolic of hope to me, and as I painted this scene I thought of the way the light floods in and illuminates the landscape. In a spiritual sense, the love of God feels so similar to me. 

About the Artist

I’m Alicia, and I’ve been painting in Indianapolis, IN for 6 years. Painting imaginative landscapes is my favorite type of work. The world is full of sparks of magic, and I try to capture the magic as I see it in color, light, movement, texture… the possibilities on the canvas are endless! One thing I always think about when I’m painting: “Is it strange or surprising enough yet?”
