  1. What distinguishes Leland from every other painter I have ever known is that he possesses extraordinary technical expertise as well as the ability to detect and accurately portray the nature and personality of his subjects, whether they be human, equine or the most breathtaking moments of pure organic beauty in nature.

    His phenomenal sensitivity to light, atmosphere, color and emotion are apparent in every piece he produces. In addition, his lifelong personal experience as a rider and breeder of horses comes through in his paintings of horses and their riders with an unsurpassed power and understanding, which, in my opinion, elevates the level of his excellence in his work to near genius.
