Roger Leonard - Oils

I am a graduate of Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida and now live on a barrier island in the northern panhandle of Florida.   The tranquility of the island and ever changing displays of nature are constant sources of inspiration. My studio overlooks Dog Island Sound on the north and the island’s interior pine forest on the south.   Like living on a boat, weather directly influences each day’s activities. The isolation of the island allows time to paint. Those paintings are representative of local swamps, dunes, critters, people, beaches and boats. I am grateful.
