OIl on Panel, 16x20"

This is a freeway painting that's still in progress-need to make a few minor corrections before it's done.

Love this. Love the beauty of it.

Another stunner! I love the simplicity.
I am a big believer in less is more.

It's looking great, Leslie. The perspective is just fantastic and as the disappearing road adds to the mysterious feel of the your overall style. Simple but brilliant.

Thanks, Lisa! : )

Hi Sandra,
I think you are absolutely right. The more I paint the more I agree with the "less is more" approach.
And, I've ruined a lot of promising ones by going in for that "final tweaking." Maybe I better leave this alone, ha ha!

Leslie Sealey said...

Thank you Caroline. I decided to keep this very simple and concentrate on the freeway shape and the feeling of rain, and not add too much detail.

It really is all about 'feeling' isn't it. Why has it taken me so long to begin to understand that. An intuitive piece Leslie.

Don Gray said...

Looking good, Leslie! I think your work is moving in exciting directions. Very personal, very expressive, very contemporary.

Leslie Sealey said...

Sheila, I think it's about trusting your instincts. They are almost always right. : )

Leslie Sealey said...

Thanks so much, Don. I've been pushing myself pretty hard lately for that "breakthrough" in my work. Finally, I feel like I'm getting somewhere.
It's an extra big bonus to have some validation, too!

I think this is really great the way it is.

Leslie Sealey said...

Simon, I decided to leave it just like it is. I used to ruin lots of paintings by making "one last adjustment." Thanks!

Looks great as is if its finished. I like the effect of shine you've given it.
