"One of my favorite fountains in downtown San Jose, Costa Rica, is located between the Gran Hotel and the Teatro Nacional on Avenida Central," shares artist Leroy Burt. "I love the patterns the water made on the blue surfaces as it splashed and cascaded down the tiers of the fountain. This fountain is popular with many birds. I often see common pigeons as well as Great Kiskadee's, Clay-colored thrush, Blue-gray Tanagers, Great-tailed Grackles, and Inca Doves frolicking in the water."

Leroy Burt

Rochester, Minnesota

Artist Leroy Burt paints playful, offbeat landscapes and portraits based on his experiences living in Milwaukee, New York, Costa Rica, and currently Rochester, Minnesota. "I think of my paintings as short stories," he says. As a young child, Leroy faced a number of obstacles. His parents divorced when he was four years old and he was raised by his grandparents in a three-room shack without running water or electricity. Leroy worked hard to pull himself out of poverty. He studied graphic design and painting, which led to a 30-year career in graphic design - five years at WMVS, the PBS television station in Milwaukee, fifteen years at city hall in Milwaukee, and ten years at WNET, the PBS station in New York. In 2015, Leroy retired to focus his energy on painting. Today, he works from a tiny studio filled with half-finished paintings stacked against every wall. "There are photos and sketches for future paintings taped everywhere," says Leroy. "My windows are filled with orchids. There are books, films and music CDs in every corner. And the room is dominated by a black and silver Andy Warhol silkscreen print of Marilyn Monroe."
