Hi Everyone!

In November 2016, after another tsunami of life-changing events, I decided to take my writing more seriously.

I founded a publishing company, Lotus Dance Press, and started a new personal site, lesleehare.net.

I’ve also got a Facebook page (please like me!), and am working on an Instagram presence.

If  you’ve enjoying reading and looking at what I’ve shared over the years here on leslee-hare.com, please hop over to one or all of those venues, and travel along with me there!

Lotus Dance Press published 21 Steps to Happiness in October 2018, and it’s now available on Amazon (or you can request it at your local bookstore). We’ve just  dropped the price, in time for holiday gift-giving!

There’s a Coloring Book version too!

Also in the works are a new novel, Sophia Learns to Fly (working title).

A young non-neuro-typical DNA research scientist pits her intuition and free-time obsessions against a strict research lab culture to prove that not all humans are really all-human… With a little help from her off-world friends.

and I’m working on several more Coloring Books that I hope to publish in early 2019.

I hope you’ll join me soon!

Best wishes for joyous holidays and a wonderful 2019!

Day 3 of the 5-Day Art Challenge….

Ink sketches. I doodled several in 2001, while sitting in a hot vendor’s booth in an art show in North Georgia. Architecture meets the landscape, sliding along trickles of fountain-pen ink.

I bet you can guess which one was done years later while sitting in some rather boring CEU lectures about building materials… fountain pen on watercolor paper.

The others just came along on a whim…

Day 2 of the 5-Day Art Challenge – digital illustration!

Thanks soar from my keyboard to Cheri Roman and Tracie Roberts for asking me to illustrate their book covers: the stuff of my most dearly held life-long dreams.

Sacrifice (Cheri Roman) is mostly painted in Photoshop with some digital collage elements; Echo and Blur (Tracie Roberts) are photo manipulation with added special effects. Title and cover layout concepts for Cheri and Tracie’s books are by the authors and Renu Sharma.

All About Enlightenment: two draft covers for my own book, still shimmering tentatively in the cryptic coding of Word documents and CreateSpace uploads…

There’s an on-going debate about which cover to use… Preferences?


  

My friend Kelly DeSousa tagged me in Facebook with the ‘5-Day Art Challenge’; months later, here we go! I did these drawings in Crayon, several weeks ago when I was home sick and didn’t feel like doing anything else.

These days I can get my hands on a huge tub of countless colors, including glittery and metallic… And all these years after sitting in my parents’ bed drawing while home sick from school, I still grab Lilac and Periwinkle as my favorites.

I remember refusing to use yellow because I didn’t think it showed up on the paper. I still think that, but now I understand ‘glow’ a little better, so I use it when I need that light.

I think I’m supposed to tag someone else to take up the Challenge – anybody wanna go for a round?
