    Artist Statement

    That which lies within us must be recognized and explored. Painting offers a way for me to do that. Expressing the delicate beauty and romance of the world around us is the driving force behind my work. I strive to paint striking images that create a lasting impression and lingering feeling of warmth and peace.

    My work is strongly influenced by Sargent. I enjoy the challenges of figurative work, focusing on color and composition rendered spontaneously to achieve romantic images. All works are oil on canvas.

    I purchased this piece for our home in Florida. The house is decorated Tuscan Villa style. I was drawn to this piece for it's mood and colors Unfortunately when it arrived,I felt that the painting was overpriced. It was smaller in appearance than I had pictured it to be. (Even given the dimensions it just seemed like it should have been a much larger piece). I was ready to return the painting but decided to sit on it for a few days. Like most art lovers, a piece has to "speak to me". And that she did for I decided to keep the painting. My intention for this review is not to insult the artist. For the painting is quite moving. I only want to express my feelings in regards to the price of the art versus what is available elsewhere. And I am certain when The White Dress is framed, she will make quite the statement in our home. For the colors and content will follow the feel of our home. All the best to the artist, Gary Leonard.

    I absolutely love the movement & expression in this piece. I'm not a dancer & my daughter is a musician so I'm not typically "drawn" to this topic, but this piece is amazing! One day I hope to own something so beautiful. We are rebuilding our home after a house fire destroyed it & everything inside last December - including some art pieces that were special to me. I wish I had the budget right now, but one day... Thanks for sharing your gifts.
