Work of Laura Lecce!

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing the beautiful work of Laura Lecce.  If you remember, I’m going to share the work of one of my fellow artists once a week. I have really loved seeing what people create and want to share. I wish I could share everyone’s art all at once. I had a hard time choosing which of Laura’s posts to reblog. I have enjoyed seeing her photography from her travels, but this great landscape caught my attention when she posted it. To me the painting has a hot and surreal feel to it, I love how the hills are glowing red and how that back hill arches down and disappears in to the sunrise/sunset. This is one of her great quotes:

“I am happiest when I am allowed to collectively live my life as a scientist, artist, photographer, writer, and many other things. I believe that hobbies and other interests are the essence of what makes people unique.”

I agree. Nice work Laura! Jill

Laura Lecce's art and photography

Unforgiving - Art by Laura Lecce Unforgiving (acrylic on canvas. 36″ x 24″) – Art by Laura Lecce

A hot and burnt landscape of fiery red hills with a river running dry. A lone brittle tree struggling to survive in a desolate and unforgiving environment. What chance does the tree have to flourish, when the land is so unsupportive of life…. Is this my future?

This painting took me a very long time to finish. Sometimes I feel like I have a certain idea in my head as to what I want to paint and then try to force that idea into a painting. This one had quite a few evolutionary changes along the way, and finally I had to stop fighting it and just allow it to be what it wanted.

  2. Really beautiful, this feels like you’ve captured the essence of Australia…..while we have a flourishing coastal environment most of Australia is desert, red hot sand where little grows but there is life its just not as obvious to the eye.

    1. Hi Michelle,
      Thank you for the lovely compliment! Interestingly, some of my friends said the same thing, that I’ve unintentionally captured the Australian outback (I can totally see it now. I think only Aussies would make that connection though). I had a quick glance at your blog, and cant wait to explore further, your artworks look amazing!
      Cheers,
      Laura
