Leslie Ann Butler created this abstracted city scene using acrylic paint with gold leaf and tarnished silver leaf. Her goal was to build a warm composition over a background of flat black. She included streaks of shining black to further enhance the depth. This modern, sophisticated piece may bring to mind a wet, reflective evening in the city.
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.
