National Arts Club

Good news! I had a painting accepted into the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club 112th Annual Open Exhibition. The show runs from Sept. 23-Oct. 15, and it will be held at the National Arts Club in NYC. I am very honored to be included, and visiting NYC will be exciting! The painting they accepted was "Chain Bridge, Newburyport"-one of my favorites.

Hi Leslie and congratulations! This is a truly lovely piece. What size is it?

David Lobenberg said...

Love the atmosphere of this one.

Leslie Sealey said...

René, YAY! : ) Thanks!

Leslie Sealey said...

Sandra, this one is 24x24", so that's a good size but still makes for fairly easy shipping.

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks David!

Leslie, New York, how exciting! Congratulations!
What wonderful subtle grays in this piece. Those headlights through the gray haze are dynamite!

Great painting Leslie... and the recognition.. nice! The design exhibits a level of savvy and sophistication you should be proud of.. and I love gray.

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks Don!

Hi Silvina! I was so happy with this one because the atmosphere/fog is made up and I think that really gave it some magic.

Leslie Sealey said...

Hey W.K., thanks for that. This is one painting I worked really hard on to best capture the essence of the bridge shapes. I love the "mostly grey with a punch of color" routine as well. : )
In real life, the yellow stripe in the road makes it very 3-D because it's the only strong color in the painting. We'll see how it goes, but again I'm just super happy that this particular one is getting some recognition.

I can feel the fog on my skin, in my nose. Wonderful!
