HISTORIC PORTRAIT GALLERY at Susannah's Watch Bed & Breakfast,  Mechanicsville, MD

The first 6 historic portraits of colonial ancestry behind the Susannah's Watch property were unveiled for viewing in fall 2020. Painted after colonial portraitist works, some no longer extant, giclée reproductions of these commission pieces may be custom ordered through the Inn or from the artist directly. Portraits include the prominent Henry and Eleanor Darnall the first, grandchildren Henry and Eleanor the second, Governor Richard Bennett of Virginia, and Jane Bowles Wormeley.

The Susannah's Watch collection also includes several other impressionist works by L.A. Slayden which may be ordered as Limited Edition, hand-signed and -numbered prints on archival, 100% rag, hot press fine art paper.

PLEIN-AIR & STUDIO PAINTING

During fine days you may find me painting in the countryside around St. Augustine, World Golf Village and elsewhere onthe First Coast. Spectators are welcome to watch plein air work at a healthy distance.

Check my Instagram @leigh_slayden or Facebook/LASlayden to learn where I am, outdoors or in studio, and watch the work come together--you can even ask to purchase before someone else does!  Many paintings never make it into the web store because they are purchased by avid followers while they are still wet.
