Open Studios gives chance to show big work

Leo is drawing from projected image of his photo
April 26-27th are the dates for our Mission Artists United Open Studios- a spring event that involves us along with many other artists who live and work close to us in this rich Mission district for art making. It is time when the public is invited and encouraged to come on out and see what happens when artist meet their media head on and bring their ideas to a visual conclusion. In our case, it involves drawing and that can happen in a variety of way. Leo found some old negatives from his trip to Genoa,
Italy in the late 60's and wanted to draw upon this industrial subject. His love of details, structure and patterns are in evidence as his works off a projected image and does his own selecting of what to highlight or leave in shadow.
