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.

OPA Salon Show Underway

"Awake, Sleeper"
Original oil, 10"x8"
©2013 Diana Moses Botkin

SOLD

In April I learned that this figurative painting of mine was accepted to the 2013 Oil Painters of America Salon Show of Traditional Oils. Competition for the OPA shows is always very tough, so having work in the show is an honor.

I had this small piece framed professionally and then packed it carefully. It is currently hanging at the exhibit, along with beautiful originals by some of the best oil painters on the continent.

You can see them all online. Scroll down on the page to find this painting on the ninth row in the middle. Being a small painting, it is one of few originals offered for less than four figures. To purchase, please contact the show venue, Crooked Tree Arts Center, at (231)347-4337.

David, thank you. The light in any situation, whether outdoors or indoors, is most often what inspires me.

This is so lovely. I think a very lucky collector will scoop it up. I agree with David Teter; the painting has a mystery to it that is very intriguing.
