Alicia Morgan aka Alicia 13

Acrylic on canvas on plywood. 30" x 30"

This is the first of a series of paintings I'm doing on real girls I know.

I found this picture so blissful, that I just had to paint it. It gives me the same feeling I get, when the sun finally comes out after 6 months of darkness, in the gray, rainy Northwest. You can tell she has not a care in the world at this moment.

Alicia is a rad girl who lives in New York, and sang in the amazing doom metal / hardcore band 13, as well as the punk band Insurgence. She moved from New york to New Orleans with 13, and after her home burned down due to the Hurricane Katrina tragedy, moved back to New York.
She's done some amazing things in her time, and I'm sure will continue to do so.
Here's an interview of her.
