Leo Neufeld

It’s so nice to see plein air painters, and it was especially nice to watch Leo Neufeld painting on the streets in town last week.  He did a fine portrait of a fire hydrant outside of Studio de la Luz on Broadway.  He often does wonderful portraits of people as you can see on his website.

His work will be shown at Rio Bravo Gallery next month.  I don’t know if the fire hydrant painting will be there.  I hope so.

    Ok. But I think your image and the wall is more interesting than the hydrant. Concrete vs abstract.
