Artwork

Pink color-blocked sheep tumble out of space on a mint background. They each look ahead to the viewer. Part of Lesli DeVito's long running series of sheep, pairing these gentle animals with clever titles to represent human thoughts and groups. Of this painting, Lesli says, "What exactly is a Mint Julep? All I know is that the name conjures up images of dainty ladies in frilly dresses reclining on chaise loungers on covered front porches in the hot and humid southern summer air, sipping on a glass, dripping with condensation and full of clinking ices cubes and a delicious mint. I probably couldn't be further from the truth, but I like the image."

Lesli DeVito

Greenwood, Virginia

Lesli Devito can't quite remember when she started painting, just that she's been doing it for quite a while now. With no formal training, Lesli took her own path and experimented with different types of paint. Eventually, she settled on something unconventional: acrylic house paint. She hopes that her works will "take people to their happy place." Lesli also created a blog called My Old Country House in which she writes about her life, art and other adventures.

Gorgeous work! Do you ever do pieces larger than 30x30?

As always, the paintings are great. I love the color. The barns are lovely, but you just capture animals. Keep up the good work,

Beautiful paintings. I love the bright colors. And, I love Trevor. Hoping one day to have one of those of my dog.
