Family by Dianna Cates Dunn
Acrylic 16" x 12"
 
I find I have the urge to paint garden paintings once again. Years ago I made my entrance into "gallery society" with my garden works. Now, after oh-so-many years, they are calling me once again.

Tula on the Mend by Dianna Cates Dunn
Mixed Media 20" x 16"
 
It's not fun being ill or injured, as Tula can attest. But in can be a time of rejuvenation. The interruption to our busy schedules combined with The need to focus totally upon our own well-being can Fine tune our appreciation of the life we have.

Biography
Dianna has been living the past 25 years in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Having Dunn had lengthy affairs with both music and theatre, she graduated from Weber University with a Theatre design degree.  In her early career she worked as a theatre consultant and interior designer before mid-life illness and crisis turned her to pursuing a full-time painting career in 1999. Her works often utilize modern symbolism with her paintings ranging from abstract and relational to a humorous and warm commentary on life.
 
The recipient of many awards that include the 2017 Silver Award for best gift book of the year from the Independent Book Publishers Association for her book "The Truths of Tula - A Muse and Her Artist", the TOSCA Magazines 2015 Colorado Artist of the Year and the Founders Award from the Colorado Watermedia Society. Her works have also been featured in “The Art of Layering: Making Connections”, “American Art Collector, Book 2”, “Art Buzz 2008” and Luxe Magazine 2011. In Colorado Springs her works may be seen at Rich Designs Home.
 
Of her work, she formulates:  Creation of art + viewing of art = relationship
Relationship is more than an optional experience to the human condition; it is its essence.  On an internal level we continually seek a balance relationship between our mind, our body, and our spirit.  What ever balance we do accomplish there is the platform from which we pursue any external relationships.  By illuminating small emotions, intimate feelings, and forsaken yearnings my work strives to allow tender memories to be stirred and inner connection to be made. In allowing the inherent ability of a line, a shape, or a color to speak for a complexity that defies verbal expression, each painting becomes a visual treatise – or ‘voice’- that initiates communications and, hopefully,  Relationship.
