I recently got a few emails from collectors that asked me " What are you working theses days." Above is one of the most recent painting I have finished. This piece will be in the Corridor Galley, in Seattle's Pioneer District at the beginning of next month and then it will make its way to the Zero Gallery, Portland Oregon. This painting has come to me in stages, it crystallized over 3 weeks. This work has to do with the the American economy and what is the future for America and the Middle East? I am not a political painter. I have no stance on these issues, only that I wish we could come to a conclusion that works for everyone. I listen to a lot of talk radio when I paint. I hear the news every 15 minutes so it has a way of sneaking into my work at times. Sorry the photo is so dark, it just means you will have to come see it. :-P De Leva...OUT!
Bear with me please, I am a painter not a writer. Last night I had 2 people ask me if I had a blog so that they could see what it is I am working on. I said to them, I tried Myspace, Facebook and Twitter and instantly lost interest. I tied blogging before but felt I was giving out too much information about myself, I am a little paranoid that way. However, in the last year I did find myself posting on the Steel Battalion fourms everyday. Maybe it is because the main interest is the game not painting. Maybe painting is too close to me so anything I write about seems like I am writing in a diary, you know TMI. Well Those 2 people above convinced me to start blogging today so I will try to keep it going. De Leva...OUT!
