Water’s luminous qualities, movement, color, rhythm and mood are beautifully synthesized in Alisa Huntley’s oil paintings on aluminum and copper. Her paintings are an exploration of reflections, abstractions and the light that dances both across and beneath the surface. Alisa’s method of working in transparent layers and loose colorful brushwork is enhanced by the reflective surface of the metal, creating a jewel-like glow.
Receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, Huntley’s art education has been a self-directed process of discovery and learning
from via fellow artists, colleges and workshops. She finds delight in the natural world and hopes her art can reach out to the viewer, touch their heart and make their spirit sing. Alisa lives in Bend, OR on 5 acres with her husband and 3 children and an assortment of animals and finds inspiration in by the vast skies, wild rivers and grandeur of the Central Oregon mountains and forests.
Her work can be seen at the Tumalo Art Company in Bend, The Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery and the Ozone Fine Art Gallery in Newport as well as online at www.alisahuntley.fineartstudioonline.com.
