In Living Color

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.

This piece was inspired by a summer spent working on a "dude ranch" just outside of Yellowstone National Park. On her day off, Renée would drive for hours exploring the Wild West. Scenic Red Lodge, Montana, became one of her favorite and most frequented destinations on these leisurely drives. During one of her trips, Renée noticed that the vast landscape was filled with her favorite colors as reflected in nature. These experiences out West were eye opening at this point in Renée's life. With their beauty came the artist's realization about how important wide-open spaces were to her, her art, and her personal well being.

Made in Chicago and hand signed.

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

    The website does not do these prints justice. The print is beautiful and draws my eye each time I walk by it. I purchased it because it reminds me of my great grandparents wheat farms in Montana, but once I saw it in person it really does have something so special about it - as if you can feel what being there would be like for a moment and not just a drawing. My husband and I like it so much, we are planning to by another of the artists prints.
