Washington, DC Artist Leslie M. Nolan in her Virginia studio

These are two paintings from my new series of figures showing women striking the same pose.  It proved to be a fun and challenging project.  Completely out of my imagination, the figures more than fill the space of the canvas. They’re pink, purple, white, and black with bright-colored backgrounds. By adopting a confident, casual pose each figure exudes energy, independence and freedom.  I like the feel of these paintings. They’re diverse, yet similar.  They’re bold, yet not in your face.  They seem to be celebrating both  uniqueness and commonality — appealing concepts for all people.
