Original Oil Paintings by Texas Artist Leslie Sealey

Oil on panel, 18x24" This one is more abstract than I usually go, but I wanted to see how much I could simplify this staircase. Almost all of it is painted with a knife rather than a brush; I was also trying to make very subtle chroma adjustments to make the shapes advance or recede. I don't know if those things really translate in a jpeg image, but I was happy with the overall design and the way it turned out. There is a red/orange underpainting that peeks through as well; I thought that gave it a little more sparkle.
