Showing May & June
Diana's goal is to engage her viewers, so that they hear the birdsong and distant thunder, feel the wind and the warmth of the sun, see the clouds moving, or wonder what has caught the bird's attention; to capture a moment in time to be experienced whenever the painting is viewed. Her work helps others see things around them that they might not otherwise notice.
Drawing and painting have been lifelong interests for Diana. She began drawing at age seven, and began painting at age 14. She took numerous drawing and painting courses in college and studied with professional artists after college. Diana paints in a representational style because she cannot imagine anything more beautiful and inspiring than the world around her.
Diana enjoys painting a variety of subjects, and especially is drawn to color and movement. She paints in acrylics, watercolors, and oils, and produces notecards and prints of some of her work.
Diana and her husband, Curtis W. Thorpe, M.D. (retired), relocated from Richmond to Southside Virginia (Charlotte County) in 2009. Her exhibit will be on display in the Robert F. Cage Gallery at The Prizery May 4, 2015 - June 26, 2015.
