Leslie likes to paint, using most any media except oils (those fumes!). First it was drawing for tapestry cartoons for her loom, then pastels, then acrylics, then ink, with printmaking and collage and who knows what else mixed in. Steve is a loom guy, which means he like messing around with looms but gets bored weaving.
Leslie paints representational abstracts. Her dancers sell the best. But mostly it's just about the fun of painting.
Steve thinks looms make nice furniture but too many become clothes hangers, like that exercise bike in your bedroom. Best to put the loom in the living room and have no qualms about putting screws into it and adapting it to your needs, like any other tool.
