What I enjoyed the most about the event was the opportunity to meet two talented local artists. It was a casual encounter, which is why the focus was more centered on the artworks of the group members, which wasn't exactly what I had in mind. Engaging in conversations with them about their techniques and concepts was a valuable experience that enriched my understanding of art. We share some time together and did a bit of drawing.

Title or Location: P. Tom's View
My grandfather started the first ice-cream company in Chicago. Delivering ice-cream to corner drug stores by horse and buggy. I recently visited the area where the factory was and loved the old brick buildings. I thought about all the stories and history that happened in these old structures. Everyone has a different story and background and sees the world distorted with their own backgrounds and understating of the world. Please take a look at this city. What stories unfold? What do you see? I

I traditionally utilize oil. Watercolor is a relatively new medium for me. I truly appreciate the opportunity to share my journey.

Title or Location: Art Deco Stef
This piece was created for an art exhibition called "In the Style of." I decided to do a portrait of my daughter-in-law Stefanie in the style of Tamara De Lempicka. Tamara was an incredible Art Deco artist. Some referred to her style as soft cubism. Many are not familiar with her work when you mention her name. If you see her work, you will recognize it. She was a portrait painter that was ahead of her time. There is an upcoming Broadway play about this complex woman in the spring of 2024

Title or Location: Atlantic Beach 1/15/24
I had never really done any portraits in my art. I felts little intimidated by them. Not wanting to make them look weird or disproportionate I then realized that with every person I encountered I was studying their features. I started practicing a few months ago and it came to me pretty quickly. With every portrait I feel more confident. I just had to over come that fear and uncertainty and it just spilled into the paper. I can?t wait to see how much better it can get. I suggest everyone try i

This is a gouache painting on watercolour paper and measures 6x4ins. Our theme in art class was Moroccan markets and this particular scene offered colour, architecture and sunshine without the heaving masses. I shall attempt a crowded scene next time.

Title or Location: And so, my love
I have had some luck with abstracts in the past, but got away from them when pet commissions and nature-oriented subjects filled my days. Recently, however, I found myself looking for something different, and I was inspired to get back to this very different way of painting. I'm having fun again! This is one of a series that is coming together, interpreting the emotions of love and longing. I hope you enjoy it, and will check out my web site, and perhaps join my mailing list! LeePerrault.com

Title or Location: Heartache
This is the third of my abstracts in what I'm hoping will be a series called "A Woman's Life". I'm trying to express emotions through the composition, colors and the attitude of the subject. This is a very challenging project but I'm seriously enjoying it and I hope that other people will enjoy viewing what I come up with.
