A majestic tree,which almost comes alive in this painting – fabulous! Be sure to take a peek at Leon’s journal – he brings it to life with his paintings and photographs!

Read a bit about Leon, from his website:

“Transforming an image into a piece of art takes passion. I feel a passion for every piece of art I create, and fortunately I have many passions in my life. 

Since I was a young boy, I have been encouraged to express the talents that I have through various artistic outlets. Common scenes evolve into something more as I convey my interpretation of them with different mediums.

I never limit myself or my art and that is why I want to share each unique and individual piece with you so you can have a piece of my passion in your life.”
