You're a very interesting painter.

Sometimes I don't know if I'm interesting or unbelievably scattered; this stuff just comes out of nowhere. But, that's what my blog is for-no restrictions.

I really like the way you paint. Wonderful subjects and composition. I enjoy seeing your new pieces. I admire your ability.

Leslie, I think this painting has alot of merit. Loosely rendered gives it a greater sense of realism and atmosphere. Very nice.

Looks good Leslie! I like the edges on the figure. Great composition!

Leslie Sealey said...

Pilan, thanks! I really appreciate your comments.

Gordon, I'm glad I didn't go back in and mess with it. That is always tempting, but I've ruined too many paintings by adding "just one more thing." It will stand as it is; glad you like it!

Leslie Sealey said...

Hi Lisa! Hey, thanks for the nice comments. I like that olive oil bottle on your blog; your paintings have a very rich feel to them-keep up the good work!

Kathy C said...

Very striking! I agree with Gordon - more is less with this one in so many ways.

I love the action in this one...how did you do it (without being shot by an arrow, that is)

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks Kathy!

Rhonda, it helped that I spent all my time around horses when I was growing up!

Jon Conkey said...

Hi again, Cheryl Meehan is right, you are a very intersting painter. Your ability to paint in more than one style is impressive; and takes talent!

Leslie Sealey said...

Thank you so much for saying that, Jon. I seem to have this ability to switch gears and do different styles; sometimes it has seemed like a liability (ie: galleries like a consistent product/identity). I've basically decided to paint whatever and however I please and not worry about it!

I really like this piece. You said it all with the least possible-- which is how I like to see paintings be.

Leslie Sealey said...

Rain, thank you so much for your comment. You are absolutely right; saying the most with the least is a quality that good paintings have in common. I hope to do more like this one!
