Watercolour on Canvas
Painted in 1996, Ross Brook now hangs in the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Leonard received the prestigious honour from Ottawa for painting the 22 by 28 inch piece: The Governor Medal of Canada.
"I wanted to challenge myself and push my watercolour control by painting this high energy raging brook. The white you see is the natural white paper, not filled in."
You can see the painting by visiting the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia on 1723 Hollis Street in Halifax.
