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.

Painting Headed to Scottsdale Soon

"Uriah's Wife"
Oil on linen, 12"x9"
©2014 Diana Moses Botkin

I'm pleased to announce that this painting has been juried into Scottsdale Artists’ School’s 2015 Best and Brightest. If you can't see the show in person, you can enjoy it online here. Last January when I attended the Artist Guild week there in Scottsdale, I loved seeing the 2014 exhibit.

The 2015 show and sale opens January 9 and hangs through February 27, 2015.

Two other pieces I submitted were not accepted and when I first skimmed the rejection letter I thought that all three of my entries had been rejected. Those letters of non-acceptance (I've gotten many) are usually very gently worded to let us down easy, but I confess I was disappointed. So it was doubly joyous to get the acceptance email for my painting of "Uriah's Wife".
