Leigh Pawling Studio Sublimity Other Works More Play

Oil on Panel
48" x 72"

The idea of doing what you did as a child has interested me of late.  Like swinging on a swing gives me a sense of timelessness or doing a cart wheel and turning my world upside down.

Leigh Pawling Studio Sublimity Other Works More 2

Oil on Panel
48" x 72"

This piece began more in the light being the mirror image to “More 1”.   It has some of my ‘ten commandments’ written on it… More water, More connection, More laughter.  I guess you really need to ask for what you want  in order for the universe to deliver.

This piece has gone through many transformations and layers - it represents my own transition from darkness into light.  Sometimes it is a daily journey.  I try not to question - just accept.

Ode to the abstract expressionist - Franz Kline - born and buried in Wilkes-Barre, Pa - he did large black and white masterpieces. Because he did, I can - and that’s how it works.

Leigh Pawling Studio Sublimity 43 The Closed Safety Pin

 

And even though this safety pin in closed - it seems to know when to open, and it seems to be very content and peaced out in the field of red and orange and purple.

Leigh Pawling Studio Sublimity 41 Fuchsia with White Circle

 

The fuchsia color in this painting is a new color for me - but I love it. It’s the perfect combination of red and blue. It shows squares with numbers and then a very thick white circle in oil paint.

Leigh Pawling Studio Sublimity 37 Forty-Five

 

The number 45 - my age. I am very aware of the age you are when something ‘Big’ happens in your life. I feel we hold numbers in our bodies and have a visceral response to them. When I hear 9/11 - something shifts...
