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
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.
