Osprey Nouveau was inspired by the beautiful Osprey we saw gracing the telephone poles around the Jackson, Wyoming valleys. At first glance I would cringe to see the power lines and poles marring our view... But then a closer look revealed these beautiful raptors transforming the tallest of these ugly irritants into fabulous penthouses! I am hoping my painting inspires people to take care of these beautiful birds. We don't want them disappearing from our world, as reflected in the disappearing patterns of the wallpaper surrounding them!
This large work had to be photographed and the background removed, i tried my best to enable you to see the swirling silver wire that suspends the work. i apologize the the wire looks dark brown, the color of the wall I have the work hanging on! Hung as a tapestry, it is the perfect statement piece for a large entryway, or an unusual headboard for a rustic bedroom!
Hi. My name is Leslie Lewis. I have been working as an artist for over 30 years with my husband Markus. Everything is a canvas to us... we started with canvas, went to walls, then to clothing- designing and then painting on it... or painting on cloth then transforming it... and all along the canvases have been there... still painting. Still loving it!
