The intention of this piece was to capture the energy of the subject with paint. The loose, spontaneous brushstrokes contrast with the controlled detail to create an exciting composition.

The piece is painted on gallery wrapped canvas with painted edges.  It comes varnished and ready 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.
