This is a t-shirt design I did for Nancy Hall and Lee Parvin of the Curios. Lee wrote a great rock number called, "Last Ride on Devil's Side" in honor of the upcoming Opening of the Tunnels and closing to traffic of the stretch of hwy known as Devil's Slide. The T-shirts and the pressing of cd singles of the song all sold out at the big Curio's Winter Concert. We've ordered, and are selling, more t-shirts. Email me if you're interested in a t-shirt, cd, or getting on the Curios mailing list! firstname.lastname@example.org
16 individually created monoprints on paper have been mounted on a wood panel to create this image of a group of objects in our house, including a wooden duck decoy and wooden foot. Nancy collects a lot of interesting stuff.
This collage of eight monoprints of palm trees and clouds was part of a series I made several years ago. The series was inspired by a visit to Palm Canyon near Palm Springs. This is from a slide collection of earlier work that I'm finally digitizing.
This is a new painting painted on top of a much older one, with parts of the old one showing through underneath. I call it Conveyance because it looks like some type of twisted bicycle, and it is a vehicle for transforming the old into the new.
My father, Nick Leone, sculpts in wood and often asks me to paint his sculptures. This collaborative piece is titled "Hear Evil", a satirized version of one of the famous three wise monkeys. I've also painted "Speak Evil" which I'll post soon. I haven't yet fully formed an idea of how to paint "See Evil" yet. Each sculpture is about 16 inches high, carved in bass wood by my dad.
This piece hangs in our home and has Nancy's found objects on a bookcase in front. It shows a unique method in which drawing and painting can be combined. I drew directly on canvas with graphite and then painted transparent glazes of acrylic over the pencil drawing.
