I love Leslie Nan Moon’s work and wanted to show it to you. Here’s her latest post with some of her excellent prints in multi media form.
The growth and colours of Spring got me thinking about this oil painting I made a few years before 2010 (I neglected to put the date on it). It's a fantasy of abundant life that I recently brought out of hiding and onto a living room wall. I hadn't thought of making strings of flowers before looking at… Continue reading Abundance

Outside of one or two prints I’d made in high school art classes, printmaking was a new venture for me.… Continue reading Mirror Images
