Sailing Away

Pin It
"Sailing Away"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
Sold.

I finished another commission today and am about ready to send the photo off to the client. I managed to paint this one too, as I had a little spare time this afternoon. The boys went to the beach (with girlfriends) so it was very quiet today. Needless to day, there were no distractions at all! Kind of a reminder of what it will be like in a month when the boys are back to school and my oldest is off to college ... sob ...
Congratulations to Edward Burton as he was the luck winner of the free painting giveaway this month. Out of 696 entries, number 146 was selected (on http://www.random.com/) and he was the lucky one! I will be sending off your painting this weekend!

Hi Leslie,
Your work is very original. I love the brushstrokes.

Love the complimentary palette! It is truly inspirational what you do with a palette knife and so few pigments... Well done Leslie!

You know I love all your work, but this one just sings! That gorgeous orange against that white and blue is stunning. I know you client is overjoyed!
