Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
The Impermanent Collection is a rotating exhibition of works by some of the very best artists in the West.
Works are sized to reflect approximate scale.
The Heritage Series
Leese’s Heritage Series of paintings are made from photographs taken around the YT Ranch, where she was raised and still lives and works today. The eras depicted vary from before her time to the present. On the ranch, much remains the same as it ever was.
The Western Land
In a way, everything comes back to the land for Leese. Not only has it been her family’s livelihood for generations, serving as pasture for livestock, but its beauty feeds her spirit. In these “quickdraw” plein air landscapes, Leese has directly captured some of her favorite places in West Texas, including areas of Big Bend and Palo Duro Canyon.
At the height of the Texas summer, the studio is the place to be. Leese’s studio work elaborates on her innate visual language and the controlled environment allows her to work on a larger scale.
