Leslie Toms

The Summer Still Life

Join us and meet Leslie Toms for her still life artist demo. Leslie will be demonstrating how she paints luscious sunflowers from life. As a contemporary colorist she combines her dazzling color palette with one of summer’s favorite flowers.

After surviving a life saving surgery four years ago, Leslie started painting flowers on her kitchen table while recuperating. As floral arrangements arrived, she would pluck one of two blooms out and place them in small jars and vases to paint. Not all flowers are equal although she enjoys then all. The sunflower became a symbol of surviving and each year she spends a month or two painting them. Leslie works primarily in oil, but experiments with other mediums as well.
