Maxine Leydon’s Painting

Maxine's Art

Maxine Leydon, 76, sets up her art work stand at the west Murdale Farmer’s Market in Carbondale, IL. She takes painting courses at John A. Logan College. “I always used to paint, but never thought I could sell any of them,” said Leydon. “My style is sort of like interpretations of other famous paintings that I put my own flavor on,” said Leydon. She says that it takes her about 2 days to finish 3 good paintings. / Photo by Justin Kenealy
