"Monsoon Remnant" by Leonard Chmiel
Monsoon Remnant, Leonard Chmiel, Oil on canvas, 9" x 14," framed.
Len Chmiel works outdoors a great deal, frequently taking trips dedicated to painting on location. His travels have taken him to England, Scotland, and across Europe, into Mexico, Guatemala, and Uruguay, as far away as Nepal and Thailand, and as close to home as his own backyard. Returning to his studio, his small on the spot paintings serve as the genesis for Chmiel’s larger compositions, which test the boundaries of representational painting in a contemporary context.
