"Leonard’s compositions are entirely non-representational and move the viewer’s eye vertically or horizontally across the space. This basic movement is complicated by layers of dripped, speckled and fragmented colors that infuse not only a rich language of color, but also a visual history left to be discovered by the eye as it moves across the surface. Leonard’s inventive layering process using an "extended palette knife" results in heavy impasto, or textured, surfaces with a glossy, wet shine making them particularly stunning when seen in person. He prefers to call himself a "colorist" and listens to the work as it develops, often carrying an element of smooth transition that he relates to water."
