"Art is the increasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers - and never succeeding."
~ Marc Chagall
There are stories in paintings, histories behind ideas, inspirations in the tiniest mundane facts, and laughter in the layers. This what I love. In various degrees of realism, I create organic colorful designs of what I see: women in complexity, men in nature, blossoming landscapes, pet portraits, flora and fauna, and surreal combinations of all of the above -- a little bit of everything. Unique fine art: original watercolors, fine oil paintings, and whimsical illustrations are just a few timeless ways of expressing life experiences. Welcome to my world. ~ leslie allyn
