Happy Sunday everyone! As usual, I am joining Mary Ann and Annie for some Sunday fun. I have had Summer here all week and we have had a blast. The weather has been toasty so we have had a lot of pool time. Let’s talk color this week. Color, Do You Love it or Loathe it?
THE COLORFUL WORLD OF ARTIST LESLIE TOMS
“Color light and luscious painterly brushstrokes” characterize the work of Sacramento-based artist Leslie Toms. Leslie is a long-time reader and regular commenter here on the blog. I have always enjoyed Leslie’s thoughtful comments and recently discovered she is a respected artist whose work is highly sought after. I asked Leslie a few weeks ago if I could feature her on my Sunday favorites and she agreed. You can find Leslie’s available paintings and galleries where you can find her work on her website here. You can follow Leslie on Instagram here.
I love this recent commissioned painting of San Francisco. Prints will be available soon.
This gorgeous still life makes my heart skip a beat.
I love this painting of the Pacific Grove Lighthouse. It is a part of her Monterey series.
Last but not least, I am beyond touched that Leslie painted my former garden as a gift to me. I can’t wait to receive it and I am pretty sure I know where I am going to hang it. Isn’t it lovely?
