Fun In The Sun

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.
Home Sweet Home, Blizzard, and Summer in the City, are homages to Renée's hometown: Chicago. The three images were painted from North Avenue Beach and Lake Shore Drive, conceived while spending countless hours along the Chicago Lakefront 18 mile path. Renée feels the Chicago Lakefront is her "home away from home", having had taken the train into the City as a kid with her father to visit the "big" beaches, and later in adult life with daily trips to "Leone Park and Beach" named after her great uncle, Sam Leone who was a boat. The family beach was only a couple of blocks away from home and the lakefront a place for frequent training for triathlons, jogging, walking, swimming, and rollerblading. To Renée, the shores of Lake Michigan are a part of her being and inspired her love of expansive horizons and scenic vistas.

Made in Chicago and hand signed.
