Thanks for asking . . . I am almost 24/7 on the book I am writing (my mother commissioned me just prior to her passing). It is called: The Cowgirl Princess and Starwalker. Of course I am Starwalker and my mother is the Cowgirl Princess.
I am excited about it--hoping to have it done to publish by spring.
Are you still "arting"? I love your work. I would love to get to Portland sometime to visit your studio. Maybe spring after the book is done.
Thanks, I would love to stop by for a studio visit. I am interested in your book about hair loss. Is it about hair loss? Due to? Of course I keep on dancing and the bandanas are amazing as they twirl and swirl with me. Take care you gifted woman. Dianne
Hi LeslieAnn...I'm so happy your guidance led you to my profile. Sorry I haven't answered sooner as i don't explore this site enough. I took time to view your website and must say I'm in LOVE with your essence and your work! I love all of your figurative and abstract paintings. Your figures are simply stunning, elegant, interesting, mystical, playful. They encompass many layers of emotions and interest while telling a story. Your abstracts are so rich with texture and color. Simply beautiful. I wish you lived near me as I'd love to get to know you. I had a website and the host disappeared one day. Voila! No website. I'm in process of having a friend build another one with my jewelry. I've been working in Art Clay and enjoy it immensely. I also paint and enjoy watercolor with mixed media the most. I work in acrylic and also create ceramic masks that I paint and ad fabric and mixed media to each one. They're all one of a kind. I have also been a healing facilitator for the past 17 years and give readings via the Akashic Records. One of my favorites are the "fairies" I channel for clients by connecting with their heart and drawing the imagery, colors and archetype symbols I receive. Would love to keep in touch. Hope you're doing well and enjoying being in the present moment. God Bless You LeslieAnn. Keep creating your amazing paintings!
Hi you left a comment on my page waaaay back in march, sorry I just dont get here very often! You asked, what the story was behind the pic of the skeletons. Well, the story behind the skeletons on my page, I don't have many details . I know it was a couple found at an archeological site. Other than that I don't recall the history of it. when I saw it , it struck me on many levels of the layered depth of human relations. showing a sort of immortal foundation of connection. Thank you for asking and I apologize it has taken nearly a year to repsond !!!
My appologies for the delay in writing...if I may take you back to my first visit to your page and comment on your paintings as to why i like them - as I could't fully answer (during over half a dozen crashes of the browser and computer ) and contify my comment, - your paintings carry with it your personal encounters, changes in ones, life process most of us been through - and seen through your artworks. In contrast with my work with artists, they are now going through the same changes in their lives, which is not known to them as they transend through a life process from the past where no words and actions that could discribe Greed, Lies, Deception, Meterialism engulfed their environment util a few years ago. A tru culture shock is now in progress and all the changes are beneath a term ' Intervention' (actually it is intrusion) by the government'.
Artworks of artists working with me are different in a sence it is reflective of a songline, a practice, a process that goes all the way back and beyond decades of time; artworks resembling symplicity for complicated situations which your artworks, in contrast, portray environments of complications, contradictions barriers, time frames of responsive gestures etc. Presently, artists I work with face such situations, where as the artworks itself, would remain unchanged, as time progress. My personal experiences are now largely determined by intervening in such environments. Music gets me out of it most of the time.
Well it is so true that 'Life was not Meant to be easy' as the saying goes.
Thank you for adding me to your contact list. I’m looking forward to building a long lasting relationship with you. Please feel free to contact me for any reason. Always remember that “Leverage” is your most powerful asset!
Thanks Leslie - I supply artworks to galleries in Sydney. Some paintings are collectible works and affordable, decorative so on... There are about 800+ practicing artists in Central Australian Region. Art works are very different and few believe it is Unique. You probably have herd about Aboriginal art. here are some examples of it http://www.anurakulatunga.com/anura/content/affordablepaintings_utopia.aspx(main web site under construction) - the most promoted works come from western Australia border region. This part of the country is still very remote and pristine. I sometimes travel with the artists and listen to their stories handed down from their kin - (Dreamings or Dream time as the stories commonly reffered to) it is an experience I enjoy very much Leslie.
Hi Leslie Ann Iam very new to AOAND - came upon your work which i find very interesting. I work with average of 10 -15 artists evry day here in Central Australia at present.
Have a great week - Peace and Happiness
