About "Out of Deep Waters"

The sailor tells of the perils of the sea; the traveller recounts the varied incidents of his career; and the soldier who has passed through battles and sieges can speak of hairbreadth escapes and moving accidents by flood and field. So it is with human life. We have the power of looking back; we can in imagination revive the past, and as scene after scene rises before us, our heart is thrilled with various emotions. And what we have experienced and recalled, we can set forth to others. The opening of this psalm is very touching and beautiful. It is as if the fire which had been burning within could no longer be restrained. The psalmist's pent-up feelings must find an outlet. Before and beyond all, he must let his full heart speak. "I will love thee, O Lord, my strength." This may be regarded as the key-note, and it is touching how the psalmist dwells upon it, with variations, as if he could not let it go (ver. 2). Love to God was not an impulse, or the result of purposes, but the very habit and delight of his soul. Name after name, and epithet after epithet, is pronounced, each having its own peculiar associations, and each; not only expressing, but exciting his love the more. In this retrospect of life we have -

About Leonie

Leonie Brown

'I am a wandering eye poet, an eclectic color fanatic. I want my paintings to leap off the wall and overwhelm you with their tactile, chocolate thick, color and texture.'

Passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.

Leonie's current body of work focus more on South African landscapes, using thick impasto paint with lots of texture and color. She describes the process of painting as, passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.
She is also is a multiple award winner and has taken part and either been placed or won some of the most prestigious awards for Fine Art in South Africa, which includes the following:

* Gregoire Boonzaaier Art Bursary, First prize, 1985.
* Potchefstroom Talent Festival: First prize, 1986.
* Schweikcherd Art Bursary for Painting.
* Winner of Volkskas National Fine Art Competition.
* Placement and First Prize in Fine Art Category, 1986.
* Rolfes Impressions.
* Placement in top 10 nationally: Total Exhibition for Young Artists

Her Abstract work has been described as Abstract Expressionism, but this has not limited Leonie's oeuvre; her realistic work contains and conveys the same explosive energy as her conceptual creations.
With the use of extremely thick impasto paint, bright and unusual color combinations and her own secret intriguing technique, her work tends to overpower the space it occupies.

She believes that the work in itself should be sufficient and powerful enough to carry out the message she is attempting to express. For the last few years she has been focusing on establishing herself as a serious investment artist. She describes her current work as Romantic Turnerism influenced by the likes of Constable, Turner and South African Artist, Errol Boyley, and Adriaan Boshoff.
She has been named as: the new Errol Boyley of South Africa, as well as an artist with the ability to paint like the Old Masters.
