Sorry I have not been
blogging this month.
I have just been buried
in oil paints. Started
Painting Abe and Obama,
lots of dogs and deers.
"you can't see the forest for the trees?"
Sometimes I walk away and come back and wipe out
the whole painting. Now I take a photo and get it
developed. It shows what I am not seeing.
Below I have some new art I am taking 6 to the gallery
but I want to take the better ones. So I need your
critique and choices. It shouldn't take but a minute to pick
a few, it will help me out.
These throw aways save time.
My hands are a mess washing
and cleaning the brushes.
A few years ago my Cousin came up from
NYC and brought me the odorless Turp.
I love it.
I will be hoping you pick a few of the paintings
Thanks so much

Yvonne started painting and drawing in High School in Houston Texas. She earned extra money drawing insects in science class for classmates. Yvonne's mother encouraged her to attend art classes at the Art Museum in Houston in the 1960's. After her marriage she moved to Miami Beach, while living on Palm Island she continued her education in art, and Design. Also studied with notable artist from the area. Yvonne was painted by friend Florence Taylor Kushner, from Boston and in women's Who's Who. Florence painted many famous families. Yvonne was lucky enough to receive private tutoring from her. In the 1970's she went to Interior Design School . Years later she started her own Interior Design firm named 'Chez Moi Interior's. Yvonne continued painting and showing her work at Beau Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Also she exhibited her work in North Carolina, the Florida Keys, and at the Childers Art Gallery on Las Olas Blvd (Ft. Lauderdale). Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her. She likes her work to show a moment in time or tell a story. To know more about Yvonne Leyden
