16x20" oil on canvas private collection
Meet Diane. She is a partner in dighoarts, a custom design firm and guiding member of the art club himself and I belong to. I was fortunate enough to pick Diane's name out of the hat passed around for our year end portrait project. I decided to paint her on a primed raw canvas with a predominately blue/magenta palette. Happily she was pleased with the results.
We had a lovely meal comprised of member prepared dishes followed by an unveiling of each portrait this past Sunday.
It was a delightful evening, made special by great tasting vittles, the Jets' victory and really incredible works of art. Ranging from representational realism to abstract concepts, the works were a wonderful conclusion to a very creative and exciting year.
