Wayne Leidenfrost's impressionistic style brings the
canvas alive with color and movement. Large open fields,
abundant with a variety of flowers and soft white clouds
dotting a blue sky, capture the essence of bright sunny
days. His intimate pond scenes depicting a soft movement
in the water and the tranquility of water lilies are
especially reminiscent of Monet's work.
A photojournalist by trade, he is used to working in a
rectangular black and white format. Painting allows him to
add bright, vibrant colors to his work. Ironically his
quick energetic brushstrokes create a very peaceful image.
Wayne was only twelve, when he began to paint and he
immediately felt the exhilaration of painting and
creativity. Though he does not understand the creative
process, he has always found it both fascinating and
mysterious, and is thankful for its presence.
Wayne Leidenfrost has exhibited his work since 1986 at
various galleries in British Columbia and the United
States. His works can be found in various private
collections both in Canada and USA.
