The Horizon Line
Part visual travel journal, part diary, artist Renée Leone's vibrant series of geographic watercolor paintings offers entrancing vistas as seen through the artist's eyes and felt through her heart. Renée combines her affinity for the geometric patterning used in textiles, mosaics, and stained glass to create personal home and building portraits that depict not only what she saw in a particular location, but, more significantly, what she felt.
Beachside and Two by the Sea were all painted while vacationing on the Gulf Coast of Florida with a friend's family. The group had traveled south from Illinois by station wagon, audio recording their quirky adventure--staying only at roadside motels, eating at old-time diners, visiting the local restaurants and historical sites along the way. The road trip ended at the pristine white sandy beaches of the Panhandle of Florida, where the travelers drank sweet tea, snorkeled the crystal blue waters of the Gulf Coast and enjoyed delicious southern peach milkshakes.

- the maker
Renée Leone is a Chicago-based watercolor artist with a Design and Communication education (BFA from Harrington Institute and BA from Loyola University). An accomplished free lance artist, Renée expresses her love for travel, art and the outdoors in her Travel Watercolor Series. Renée's images represent chapters of her life, culminating in an artistic journal depicting the places she has been and the experiences she has encountered along the way.
Renée attributes her love of art to her many early family influences, including her grandfather's sculptures, her father's avid art collecting and her eldest brother's art and architectural background. Combining her childhood passion for knitting and crocheting, with her affinity for mosaics, quilts, and stained glass windows, Renée uses her art to tell her story. The result is a harmonious pattern of color and whimsy, giving the viewer a window into her world of space, color and feelings.

Comments about A SUNSET TO REMEMBER - RENEE LEONE:
I hang it on the wall of a pale periwinkle bedroom that has white woodwork. It nourishes me every time I look at it.
