"Jerusalem, City of Hope"
Leonard Shane
pen and ink and watercolor - 14 Inches x 24 Inches
This painting was inspired firstly by the wondrous interplay that pen and ink and watercolor and the application of 'drawing gum' to the art paper, create. It's as if untold surprises begin to unfold. I was motivated to create a bright colorful piece of artwork here, with lots of white areas popping up in the most surprising places as the result of applying 'drawing gum' to the art paper before even putting paint to the canvas. The result for me was a very uplifting piece of work, something with hidden images and the possibility for the viewer to make his or her own interpretation of the message here. I've reproduced this as a 48 inch wide giclee and it is stunning at this size. I hope you enjoy it.

You phoned our school about buying cards for year end functions etc.....so I thought I would go on your website and take a look. I really liked some of your paintings especially "the Breaking Surf "and "Reflections". Not prepared to buy any right now but I will keep it in mind.

your artwork
I saw one of your paintings in an Esquires coffee shop and quite liked it. Checked out the website, and just wanted to pass along how much I enjoy Reflections and The Sea Comes Alive (I think), as well as your watercolour land/sea scapes. I'll start saving my pennies! Cheers and best wishes, keep up the great work!
