Leah Saulnier New Work With Their Stories And Bimonthly News Letter Sign Up

My Latest Work And A Work In Progress And The Story Behind Them


Koi is a painting I completed about a month ago.  She is part of a long series over many years and is #10  .  I just love painting the fantasy concept of fish swimming through a woman's hair.  Some may think she is a mermaid.  I love painting portraits but always like to add a twist with them.  The original is 30x24x1.5 oil and the original is still for sale.

                                                               "Fractured Identity"

I finished "Fractured Identity " a few weeks a go . My husband had a stroke a few months ago and I feel when he mention a few weeks ago that a good name for a band would be "Fractured Identity" it was stating what he was feeling. This image popped in my mind. It seems it can reflect many people's emotions with different obstacles they might be going through.  The painting is 24x18x1.5 oil

                                                   The Coffee Addict work in progress

I am working on this painting right now and hopefully should be done sometime today. Sorry for the bad photo, that's generally how I take my work in progress photo's with my phone till completed by my photo editor.   This painting was an idea I had of someone obsessed with coffee, like she can't get enough of it!  She is a bit messy also that's why she has a whip cream mustache.  Hmm I would say it's time for a coffee break. Follow me here or sign up for my by monthly news letter to see the finished results!

Art: Discouragement Turned Into Determination!

       Recently I have been reflecting on what I do in Life and for a living;  Painting Humor/Surrealistic Art In Oil.  I have been reflecting on it more recently since my husband had a stroke 3 months ago and I now am the main supporter of him,our minor child,me and the whole household. Wondering how I am going to do it just painting and being his full time caregiver. I was thinking to myself in our economic times if I could really do that?  Then was thinking how did I get where I am today with my work,  I have been painting full time now about 7 years, but taught myself to paint starting in 1997 when my fascination with it and my drive for it started and couldn't stop.  I was realizing I still feel as passionate about painting today as I did 16 years ago when I started and get such a natural high from it.  I love to create new works from dreams, nightmares, and strange thoughts that pass through my mind.   I am a very determined artist to make it in the art world.   I even lost my last gallery because I wouldn't be formed into painting cookie cutter art just to make a buck like painting dogs or more cars. Don't get me wrong I paint cars and dogs but I paint them when I want to paint them not just because they would be a big seller. I like to paint what comes to my mind and change often from humor ,surrealism, realism,animals,portraits, crude, just about anything when I feel like it and won't be painted in a corner with the same thing the rest of my life. That would make me PUKE! 
                    I get discouraged when I don't make sales consistently but it turns into determination to make a great painting to get my work noticed even more.   I am obsessed and sooo determined after all these years I sometimes don't know where it comes from! But glad I have it.  It has gave me so much meaning in life, a reason for being here, a mark with my name and I always have believed In what I do with sincere emotion,thought and love for the arts .  I will probably write another blog soon elaborating on all this since I have been going through a tremendous amount with my situation. Oh, my cat died today .  I did a painting of her about 6 months ago I will post also.   Art supporters out there wish me luck and I hope I had some words of wisdom with discouragement turned into Determination. I would love to see your feedback and any help I can offer with finding your own path.   I wish I could share my determination with other artist's that always seemed to be discouraged.  Here are some recent works of mine below and the painting of my cat that passed away today which is called "My Cat's Worst Nightmare"   Thanks for reading my Blog. Here is my website also

"Sunday Morning" A story telling commission painting I started a fer weeks ago for a local couple. He owns his own house painting business and she helps in his office. She does quilting ,so I added a partial part of her quilt to her overalls. She was also raised on a dairy farm so I gave her a cow necklace. They have chickens ,this parrot and 4 long haired chihuahua's which I only added 2 and got bit 3 times by them during the photo shoot.They garden is why the tomato plant and sunflower. He is wearing an Army hat in honor of his son that is in special forces in the Army.. I will be delivering this to them in a few days once it dries. Hope they like it! If anyone is interested in a story telling painting down the line keep me in mind! This is 36x48x1.5 oil
