Leona Jones

Hi all, my name is Leona Jones. I’ve previously done art in oils many many years ago and I hadn’t done any painting for many years so when Jen started the classes, I decided I’d have a go and learn all about pastel painting. I wasn’t too sure I’d like it, but I’m very happy with it and now I’ve been with Jenny for 3 and half years and also started acrylics on Saturdays and really loving that too. I like painting seascapes, portraits, landscapes, a bit of everything. I just totally enjoy it. I’ve got an acrylic called “Open Sea” hanging in the library here at Grovedale Neighbourhood House. I used palette knives which I’m really happy with. The other one is a portrait of my daughter Elizabeth and I thought I’d like to show that to the world.
