As hard as I’ve been pining for spring, when I spotted the beauty above on my friend’s Facebook wall, I fell instantly in love! (This one’s thanks to you, Lady Twin!)
Christopher Leeper is an award-winning realist painter and children’s book illustrator based in Ohio, from whence Lady Twin hails! Leeper paints what he sees, and judging by his gorgeous landscapes and small-town scenes, what he sees is truly stunning.
I found that after gorging myself on Leeper’s paintings, I felt more at peace. To me, one of the marks of a truly great painting is how dramatically it can affect the viewer’s mood. And these paintings certainly had a positive effect on mine!

And now, just for L.T., is the song that plays in my head every time someone says “Ohio.”
