New Artwork – New Exhibit

img_20200520_140116595This is a small sample of my solo Divergent Impulses at Calloway Fine Art & Consulting in 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.

In Situ

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.

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.

I’m honored to be representing Calloway Fine Arts & Consulting with this painting and one other (see the previous post) at the Current Art Fair in Richmond, VA.  The fair runs from October 24-27 — a perfect drive during Fall.  These exciting contemporary artworks would look terrific in any space.  For more information:  http://www.currentartfair.com

Just completed this fun painting.  I love the feeling of it. The model exudes confidence and has the aura of a risk taker who can be relied upon without fail.  Part of my new Arctic series, this artwork captures the dichotomy between isolation and camaraderie, which is also the essence of adventure in the North, and of being at ease in one’s surroundings.

Marcus, 40″x30″ painting on canvas, by Washington DC artist Leslie M. Nolan

I’ve been working on a new series of paintings about the Arctic and Norway since a recent trip there.  These canvases try to convey the feel and emotion of the landscape, including its visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile qualities.  Unforgiving, yet magnificent, the area represents a uniquely challenging environment for people.  Beautiful and powerful.
