My inspiration was to create a feeling of peace with the cooler colors of morning light and a classic, timeless pose of the figure. The piece was created on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes varnished to bring out the colors and is wired to hang.

Getting to Know Gary

Through composition, color, texture and more, Gary Leonard celebrates beauty. His works start with the subject, but then he lets the work evolve into a more complex composition. Oftentimes, he enjoys merging figures with abstract images and varying textures. He hopes that his works will leave the viewer with a sense of warmth and peace. When he's not making art, he enjoys listening to music and learning how to play the piano.
