On behalf of Elizabeth Laishley, I wanted to spread the word about her art book “Homage to Leonard Cohen.” She’s had an extensive relationship with his work in the past 40 years and was inspired to express her interpretations of his songs into a series of paintings.
This book was originally published in 2002 and features 32 of her paintings, two poems by Leonard Cohen, personal messages from the man himself, and various articles about the book. Along with the paintings, she’s included the story behind how they came to be and her journey along the way.
You can read more about it and take a look through the book on her website at http://artviewconsulting.ca/book.html
. Under the “Cohen Work” section you can view her entire series of paintings – many which are not included in the book. Some of her cedar block paintings are still available along with physical copies of the art book if anyone is interested and you can read more about those at http://homagetoleonardcohen.blogspot.ca
