Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Dancer in Red Slip" at Oil Painters of America 2011 National Show

Framed Original Oil 12"x9"
©2011 Diana Moses Botkin

I'm pleased to announce that my original oil on hardboard has been accepted to the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition. This year's national show opens June 10 at Devin Galleries in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

You may inquire about purchasing this piece at the gallery's online link . This jewel is one of the most petite in the show, as well as the most reasonably priced.

I am looking forward to seeing who falls in love with this!

Congratulations, Diana! The folds on the fabric are gorgeous as is the facial expression and the cropping. Way to go!!

Diana Moses Botkin said...

Thank you, Christa, Delilah and Jana. It's so fun to know you are all cheering for me!

Most of you know I love to paint a variety of subjects from still life to landscape. I've been drawing and painting the figure and faces the longest and I guess if I had to choose one genre it would have to be figurative work.
