Canvas Chronicles: Alice Glass's Colorful Odyssey in Art
Raised in a family brimming with commercial and fine artists, Alice has always had a deep love for art, but didn't start painting until early 2015. Her first experimental paintings gave way to a variety of subject matter including abstracts, florals, landscapes, Mediterranean villages, beaches, faces, still life and commissioned pieces of family houses and pets. Most of Alice's work features bright and colorful acrylic paint on canvas, canvas board & watercolor paper, and all of her work is produced primarily with her favorite selection of palette knives. Alice's style is to quickly create her subject matter with broad painterly strokes leaving thick, expressive bands and pods of colors mixed on her palette board as well as the canvas itself. In less than six years, Alice has produced more than 1800 paintings in a variety of sizes with her artwork displayed in several regional galleries, and has had her work featured in a dozen one-woman shows. A 35 year resident of Lynchburg, Virginia and a 1980 graduate of Mary Baldwin College, more than 650 pieces of Alice's artwork can be found in the homes of more than 350 collectors.
