Yellow Alert

"Yellow Alert" by Washington, DC artist Leslie Nolan

“Yellow Alert” by Washington, DC artist Leslie Nolan

Just completed this artwork. Working on a couple of companion pieces. Inspired by spring, renewal, regrowth, possibilities, the affirmation of life.

A recent visit to Baltimore’s Walters Museum and the Baltimore Museum of Art provided the inspiration for this piece.  Armor, strength, vision, and persistence all come to mind as attributes I tried to imbue into the painting as the figure evolved. The title links the color coded emergency status developed after 9/11 with the predominance of yellow in the painting.  And, I think the figure itself projects a feeling of alertness and confidence capable of taking on any unforeseen event.

Also, a reminder that I’ll be having a solo exhibit in September 2015 at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Georgetown.  Susan exclusively represents me in the Washington, DC regional area.  This artwork above will form part of that solo show.
