I am a bigger fan of landscapes than Ernest, but we are both huge fans of the ethereal weather paintings of Indianapolis-based artist Alicia Zanoni. By painting elements of weather, she invites us on a spiritual journey. We first became fans of her crashing ocean blue waves in 2017-2018 during her Arts Council of Indianapolis fellowship. Today, those same spirit-filled brush-strokes are blended into landscapes with orange, green, and yellow. We brought home her “The Opposite of Hesitant” on Friday, and that makes Alicia Zanoni our artist of the week.
