Pretty in Blue

Pretty in Blue, Leah Marie Goddard, 2023, acrylic, 40 x 30 in. / 101.6 x 76.2 cm.

"Prettly in Blue" is a masterful display of Goddard's command of color and composition. Measuring 40 x 30 inches, the canvas is awash with a stunning spectrum of blues that breathe life into the delicate petals and leaves. A singular bird, rendered in a burst of iridescent color, appears as the living heartbeat amidst the floral splendor. Goddard’s bold brushstrokes imbue the painting with a rhythm that is almost musical, creating a dance of shadows and light across the textured canvas.

Jungle Green

Jungle Green, Leah Marie Goddard, 2023, acrylic, 36 x 48 in. / 91.44 x 121.92 cm.

In "Jungle Green," Goddard transports the viewer into the heart of a verdant oasis. This 36 x 48-inch painting exudes the lushness of a tropical paradise, with flowers in hues of passionate pinks and reds that pop against the dense foliage. There's a feeling of depth and motion, as if a breeze has just swept through the jungle. The use of contrasting colors draws the eye, ensuring that every bloom's individual beauty contributes to the overall tapestry of life she has woven.

Queen's Croquet

Queen's Croquet, Leah Marie Goddard, 2023, acrylic, 28 x 22 in. / 71.12 x 55.88 cm.

"Queen's Croquet" presents a whimsical yet regal interpretation of nature, as suggested by its title. The 28 x 22-inch artwork is a smaller, more intimate canvas, where Goddard plays with saturation and tonality to create a rich narrative. The flamingo, standing in majestic solitude, is a stroke of genius—its vibrant pinks and reds set against the wild greenery convey both elegance and wildness, a testament to Goddard's ability to capture the spirit of her subjects with both realism and a touch of fantasy.

Goddard's work stands out for its spirited brushwork and luminous color choices, revealing an artist deeply connected to her subject matter. Through her paintings, Goddard doesn't just depict scenes; she encapsulates experiences and emotions, inviting the viewer to step into a world where nature's beauty is celebrated in every stroke.
