Birtch Trees


Pink and White Poppies

Here are some recent silk hangings - they look great pinned up so they catch a little breeze and move or framed floated so you can see the image.  They are 44" x 44" and are $295 each.

Third Friday - Kingston

27 December 2007

Yes - this is third Friday - or as most of you will know me as - “and more”. To my surprise, the paper’s ad for December’s third Friday listed only two or three participants and I was included in the “and more” section. So all of you without the luxury of a crystal ball - well - you probably didn’t know “I” was the and more!! But thanks to all the many friends and family who did come by and view my new work, have wine, cheese and eggnog. Here are a few pics from the night!

The sign and my rendition for the “and more” crowd. {yoogallery src=[/images/stories/blog/leigh_1227_07] style=[lightbox] height=[100]}

New Work

03 January 2008

Here’s some things i’m working on in the studio - getting back into drawing which tends to lead to my paintings.

Also a great quote by Einstein reflects how I feel about my paintings. Looking forward to seeing the Klimp movie which I read is out on dvd.

This is all new for me - so bear with me…..

Mural in kids room

19 January 2008

My sister and brother-in-law moved to a new (old) house and aunt Leigh (that’s me) was called upon to do their rooms.  Olivia got flying pigs and Stella got the rain forest. 

Next week I’ll do Walking Egyptians on the wall going up the steps -  cool stuff.

Arts Alive - Infusion 2013

02 August 2013


Last night was the final exhibition of Arts Alive which took place at the Scranton Cultural Center.  Earl Lehman and I had a great group of high school painters from various Lackawanna schools.  I think they were quite impressed with the paintings they did which made a bold statement hung in a pentagon shaped tower.  I know we were proud of them - and glad we got to know them......
