West Coast in Watercolor
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 locale was captured while the artist relished one of her favorite past times, simply sitting on the beach and painting. Here Renée captured majestic Pacific Beach in San Diego along with the fog-covered La Jolla hills. In a rare stroke of impulsivity, the artist's includes an abstract self-portrait within this summery piece. She sits front-and-center, her back to the viewer and her painting in progress on her lap.
