This is a small sample of my solo Divergent Impulses at Calloway Fine Art & Consultingin Washington, DC, available online through June 5. All new and exciting figurative work out of my imagination. Most of the 15 paintings featured in the show are 36×48 canvases. I think they make any room in the home or office more interesting.

Very honored to be juried into the Spring Exhibit of the prestigious Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis. Originally planned for the Circle Gallery, the coronavirus pandemic has caused the exhibit to be online at the organization’s virtual Curve Gallery. Check it out at http://www.mdfedart.com.
A big thanks to juror Paul Reuther, artist and teacher at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD. He also teaches at the Corcoran School of Arts and Design at George Washington University in Washington, DC. In addition, I want to highlight the terrific work of the talented staff of Maryland Federation of Art for their considerable efforts during this difficult period.
The exhibit is available online through May 30 and this piece is for sale.
In May 2020 Calloway Fine Art & Consulting features my newest artworks in an exciting solo virtual exhibition @callowayart.com. While the virtual nature of this show is the result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, happily these new paintings on canvas can all be viewed online at your leisure and from the safety of your home.
Titled Divergent Impulses, the canvases in this all-figurative exhibit tell multiple stories, unique to the imaginary individual portrayed. With an array of color, body language and texture, the artworks blur the real with the imagined by focusing on emotions and impulses of the moment.
More details to follow. In the interim, enjoy the above image Scott, 48×36 acrylic painting on canvas.
68″x64″ mixed media on canvas, titled Jenna, in the studio. Bigger is definitely better and more fun. This charming, clever gal makes a terrific addition to any space, forming a witty backdrop to conversation and creativity. Contact the artist for purchase.
It’s important to see artwork in a room to envision how it might look to live with every day. I prefer art that commands attention, catches at a glance, and doesn’t blend into the wallpaper. This sitting room is made vibrant and relevant with interesting, dynamic paintings filled with color and attitude. It looks young and filled with potential. Check out my artwork available at Calloway Fine Art & Consulting in Washington, DC’s prestigious Georgetown area.
Josie – 48″x36″ painting by Washington DC artist Leslie M. Nolan
This painting proved to be a joy. A young woman in a hoodie, she sometimes appears Madonna-like, then later as a wide-eyed gamine. Either way she exudes an arresting, fresh quality that could be every lass. Available in the studio.
I like the way this painting tackles the feeling of a man perfectly adapted to his surroundings, fully at ease and intent on his business, dealing with whatever needs to be accomplished despite or because of the weather. It exemplifies the spirit of individuals who are confident and capable — self-actualized. Qualities I greatly admire.
