Welcome to The Leonard Borman Art Gallery
( Your Host Robert Farris ) I have always had a great interest in art
& over the years I have studied many different mediums, drawing, painting
printmaking, sculpture & about 1998 started computer animation.
After moving to the Southern California Desert in the mid
1960's I met an extraordinary artist , Leonard Borman.
Any painting with this * asterisk in the title or description indicates it's in my private collection.
I have three sketchbooks Leonard used over a 40 to 50 yrs. period. Drawings posted on this site from them will have this ( * asterisk by pictures from those sketchbooks ) These books were what he call dummy books, that he picked up from junk stores. They are 9"x6"x1&1/2" hard cover with titles on the front & about 12 printed pages & pictures. The remaining pages are empty and very nice for drawings & small watercolors. ( There are two Titled SAFARI printed 1927 & one, The American  Adventure l The Civil War 1927 ) He said they were samples sent in advance of a full publication for the purpose of obtaining orders. Notes here Leonard is holding one in his left hand. Almost all other pictures on this web site are from hundreds of photo prints, color slides, drawings, original paintings  & other material he kept, mainly for reference to aid in further advancement of his art.
