I consider Leonard's work to be some of the finest examples
of ink pointillism ever produced. These images do not do the work
justice; there are no lines or shadings, only dots. The majority of his
works were released in limited print runs which he hand numbered and signed.|
Leonard did much of his work out of San Francisco, selling at street fairs near the Embarcadero. Later in life, he spent time traveling to various shows in Nevada and northern California. Before he died in the mid 1990s, he was living at the Renaissance Fair grounds in Novato. Leonard was a close family friend and a big influence on my own life and art. It saddens me deeply that he died largely in obscurity.
I am interested in hearing from anyone who owns one of his peices. What you see below represents the majority of his works, but if you own a work that you do not see, please send me a digital copy and I would be happy to add it to the collection. To the best of my knowledge, all of the pointillism originals are in the possession of the orphanage that raised him as this was among his last wishes; the exceptions are the two oils which are owned by my mother.
I am unaware of any galleries that carry his work or where one might aquire another of his prints.
