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.
Sylvie, 48×36 painting on canvas by Leslie Nolan, Washington, DC artist
Proud to display Sylvie, above, in the studio after this summer’s exhibition at CATO Institute’s “Freedom: Art as the Messenger” in Washington, DC. Bold, stark, and arresting, Sylvie commands attention in a thoughtful way, open to many and varied interpretation. While minimal in execution, it’s packed with potential in terms of content. It looks great on any wall. Contact me for purchase. Cheers
Rafe, 30×30 acrylic on canvas by Washington, DC artist Leslie Nolan
Very honored to have two of my paintings selected for the prestigious City of Overland Park, KS, National Juried Exhibition. Rafe, above, one of the selected works, is a wonderfully expressive painting that defines the fast pace of contemporary life and would look terrific either in the office or at home. It makes me think! And, it seems to emanate both energy and wit, in addition to sporting a color palette that works with any wall.
Many thanks to the talented artist Johne Richardson who served as guest juror for the exhibition.
Nigel, 48″x36,” acrylic on canvas by Washington, DC-artist Leslie M. Nolan
Nigel made its way to SCOPE Miami Beach 2018 with me and caused quite a stir at the JanKossen Projects booth. Filled with emotion, the painting features rich, thick, and creamy paint in large gestural sweeps. Drips, drops and smudges all add to a chaotic mix, much like life itself. Thanks to Jasmin Kossenjans and her terrific staff for taking good care of me and mine.

Under Wraps 3, 36″x48″ acrylic on canvas, by Washington DC artist Leslie Nolan
Many, many thanks to juror Annette Polan for selecting this cute painting for the highly competitive regional exhibition on Capitol Hill and conferring it Third Place. A renowned nationally-feted portrait artist, Annette knows her figures. She painted the official portrait of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Thanks also to Exhibitions Director Nicky Cymrot and her staff for making this possible.
