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.

Another One Done

"Toothbrush Break"
Original Oil, 7.5" x 13"
©2011 Diana Moses Botkin

This painting has gone through a couple of transformations to progress to something that looks finished and with which I'm also happy.

It has evolved into this simple study of the model during her break from poses. I liked her unusual uninhibited position while she stretched out her foot and simultaneously brushed her teeth as she relaxed.

This figurative piece and another one, is to be shipped this week to Tidewater Gallery in Swansboro, NC. Please contact the gallery if you would like sales information.

Thank you for dropping by here to comment, Chris. It gave me the opportunity to go to your own blog to see who you are. I'm glad I did! Keep up the good work.

You gave me a chuckle, Mary, with your observation. Thank you!
