Eyelashes By Lesley Harrison -- Original Pastel Painting

⭕ Eyelashes by Lesley Harrison -- original Pastel Painting

We purchased this Lesley Harrison original Pastel Eyelashes, in 1995 at the Big Horn Galleries, in Carmel Ca. At that time, we lived on a ranch and had horses in San Martin, CA. We moved earlier this year to the Sacramento area and no longer have a ranch or horses. The new home has a very different look and we are no longer featuring horse pictures, but we have plenty. . .. This is our favorite, our only original and is just an awesome work of art. It is still featured as a print and sold today. We thought it is time to allow someone else to really enjoy the beauty of Lesleys work.
The Pastel has been taken care of and was featured in an area not exposed to sunlight or temperature swings. It is in outstanding condition. The picture is listed as 10 x 14 and is framed in a 20 x 16 frame.
This is an original,not a print, so there is only one in existence.
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

About Lesley Harrison from her website:

Very few artists achieve the technical excellence found in the art of Lesley Harrison. Even fewer capture the spirit, the emotion and the life-like realism for which her work is known and collected. Acknowledged as one of the finest pastel artists in America, her amazing equine and wildlife paintings have brought joy and happiness to animal lovers and art lovers throughout the world. - The Monterey Herald

Lesley Harrisons Sacramento, California girlhood was shaped by animals and art. I was born loving animals, she says. It seems to be in my blood. She remembers an ongoing menagerie from cats to chickens. She started drawing animals in second grade. I was taken down to the principals office more than once, because I was drawing horses instead of paying attention to the teacher, she laughs.
In 1975, I picked up a stick of pastel and it was instant love. I had tried other mediums, but nothing had ever clicked. By 1983 she was selling enough paintings to quit her day job. Talking about getting her work into galleries, Lesley relates, Whenever Id approach a gallery about showing my work, the first thing theyd ask was what was my medium? Id say pastels and they would say they werent interested. So I finally told a gallery that I worked in oil and pastel (which was true!). They told me to bring the oils, not the pastels. I took both and left them for review. They loved the pastels!
Lesley works on location and also supplements those sessions with reference photographs. This approach allows her to develop paintings that are fresh yet rendered with authority. Although pastels are notoriously difficult to master, Lesley has received a number of professional honors and awards for her technical excellence. Recently, for the third consecutive year, the Pastel Society of the West Coast recognized her for her contribution to pastel as an artistic medium. She is also a member of the exclusive Pastel Society of America.

Lesley has now been painting professionally for 30 years. She has combined her love of animals with painting to produce in her career a continuing series of remarkable animal portraits. An affinity for the animals that she paints and a strong command of her medium allows her to capture the spirit of each animal and to convey to each viewer its individuality, grace and strength.

She sums up her experience: Im blessed, blessed that people want to buy what I love to paint. Sometimes people stand in front of my paintings and cry. What better gift could any artist receive? Im convinced that paintings that come from the heart can touch the heart of others. Its almost as though I become a source through which animals can be portrayed as an individual, each with a distinct personality. It doesnt matter if the animal is a cat, a wolf or a horse; I paint the ones that evoke an emotional response in me in the hope that I can pass that on to the viewer.

What Lesley wrote about Eyelashes

This remains a favorite of mine, even though its about 15 years old.

This was a mustang stallion that was adopted after 10 years of running free. He reminded me of some of the wolves (in captivity) that Ive handled. They are able to be handled safely (but carefully) and yet you can always feel the wild still in them.

This was such a trusting place for this once wild stallion to be, with a hand-fashioned halter out of stiff rope.

Attention Scammers - Please do not bother contacting me. I know most of your tricks. This is only a face to face meeting with cash to pay for the item. No shipping or 3rd party pickup schemes. This gets tiring and is a waste of both of our time.

Thanks for looking.
