About "For Me to Live Is / Oil Painting | Canvas Paint"

For Me to Live Is... Oil Painting Canvas Painting Custom Oil Painting Original Art Original Oil Painting Wall D[0xC3A9]cor Arts Active



What am I living for?
What do I believe in?
Is my hope only in hope?
Is my glass half full or half empty?
What if things are not going as I what I believe it should be?

My beliefs are truths that have been formed by a constant trickle of thoughts through my mind, depositing their positive, negative and indifferent impressions as they run through, like stalactites and stalagmites in your head, like roses with thorns.

What happens if the thorns prick me and I bleed. What am I bleeding? Despair, angst, hope, miraculous impossibilities?

What do I see when I look?

About Leonie

Leonie Brown

How I Create

The brightness of oils is mixed with the soft translucency of encaustics (wax), and creates hidden messages and layers below. The layering gives the work a softness and richness that invites the viewer to look closer and to experience the satin-smooth surface through touch. The wax layers get more and more translucent through the warmth emanating from the exploring human hand. The viewer becomes a part of the slow change and clarity of the painting...as if the message is rising from the depth of the hidden soul to the surface of the mind. There is a strange ethereal beauty to these paintings, as if made from air.
