Leslie Ann Butler describes this painting as "powerful." She created the modernist composition with deep reds and copper leaf to build its aura. In 2019, the artwork was chosen for the set of the Warner Bros series Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists. "It's a versatile piece," explains Leslie. It was displayed horizontally in the television series but was originally painted to be displayed vertically as shown."
Abstract painter Leslie Ann Butler has been passionate about making art since she was a child. “In grade school I did a portrait of Robert Frost and sent it to him, and received a nice letter of thanks,” Leslie Ann recalls. Though she still enjoys creating figurative work, Leslie Ann is also intrigued by abstraction. She describes creating abstract work as entering an altered state of consciousness. Often the compositions will come to her during meditation, and she does her best to reproduce the vision in the studio. Leslie Ann works from the top floor of her Portland home, where she gets lots of natural light and a view of the city.
