Such Great Heights

"Roaring Fork Valley," was inspired by a birthday excursion to frosty Aspen. To celebrate her birthday, the artist, Renée Leone, could think of nothing she wanted more than to perch herself along the trails and capture their beauty.

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.

Made in Chicago and hand signed.

Her 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.

Renee 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, Renee 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. collection

    Comments about ROARING FORK VALLEY - RENEE LEONE:

    I see this print (which I had framed myself) every morning as I wake up and it lights up my day with the detail and the imagination used to create it. I love mountains and nature. The review on framing was not the best, so I did get it framed to my specs with glass and a narrow dark green metal frame that matched the colors depicted.

    Comments about ROARING FORK VALLEY - RENEE LEONE:

    The catalog picture had "Aspen" Colorado. My picture only says "Colorado". Luckily my husband recognized the location. Otherwise, we love the picture; brings back great memories of us skiing each Winter until my knee replacement cut my time on the slopes to a halt. I love her Red Lodge pic as well. Am saving to get that as well. Really like her work.

      Comments about ROARING FORK VALLEY - RENEE LEONE:

      The print itself is beautiful as is the one "Elation" my husband purchased for me from a different artist. However, the quality of the frames and are not covered in glass, but plastic and for the price, we found both to be cheaply framed. Delivery was poor, taking up to 3 weeks to receive from artist to framer in Oregon and then to recipients. Got there Christmas eve, almost 3 weeks after purchase. Mine was delayed and missed my birthday (we live in California by the way)...so if you need a print in a hurry don't order from Uncommon Goods. All other purchases we have made were excellent service and delivery.

        Loved the first piece I purchased so much that I decided to buy three and hang them on a problem wall in my living room. Beautiful! Ms Leone's impressionistic sketches evoke all the things I love about the west and take me back to places I've visited. I smile whenever I walk past that wall now.

          Very original and picturesque. Just abstract enough to distinguish itself. Nicely done!
