Focus on the Light

Announcing Site Facelift

A new look with an enhanced theme that incorporates improvements to all the portfolios.

Under the Portfolios menu bar at the top and on the right-hand side, you’ll find a new page for “All My Art,” which showcases an image-grid of every last piece. You can click on each one to enlarge it, see the asking price, and, if you wish add on a mat and/or frame.

If you’re not in the market to buy, please take a peek and just enjoy. I appreciate every click I get.

New Site Is Live!

My new site, Patricia Leone Fine Art,, is now live. Since the new site does not feature a blog, I’ll still be posting to this site.

The patricialeone site focuses primarily on art and offers fine art and canvas prints of my work. Prices vary, depending on the sizes you choose and whether you choose to frame and/or mat them. Currently, not all of my work has passed their stringent requirements for prints. More will be offered as I work on preparing new photographs in higher resolution for upload.

Even if you are not in the market for works of art, please take a look at my site. I love an audience and cherish every click I can get! It shows up in the site statistics. Also, I want to thank all of you who have followed this site, and hope you will choose to follow my new site.

Our Life Is a Work of Art

Quoted from chapter in PEACE IS EVERY STEP, by Thich Nhat Hanh, 

If we just act with awareness and integrity, our art will flower, and we won’t have to talk about it at all. When we know how to be peace, we find that art is a wonderful way to share our peacefulness.

Artistic expression will take place in one way or another, but being is essential. So we must go back to ourselves, and when we have joy and peace in ourselves, our creations of art will be quite natural, and they will serve the world in a positive way.

Man’s Inhumanity to Man

“The only way in which one can make endurable man’s inhumanity to man, and man’s destruction of his own environment, is to exemplify in your own lives man’s humanity to man and man’s reverence for the place in which he lives.”

Alan Paton

Note: The brass sculpture I created when I was twenty represents all forms of repression: negative emotions holding an individual back; one person holding another back; and racism, hatred, and indifference holding a group back.
