High Tide Nocturne by Dianna Anderson
Oil 6 x 8
 
Dianna created High Tide Nocturne, a 6x8" oil on Gessobord plein air painting while on vacation to Georgetown, Maine. "I tried to express the evocative nighttime tonal harmonies in the cooler color range, the pink haze around the moon and shimmering Atlantic Ocean. With so much water in my view, I loved the idea of a safe haven across the bay."

Indian Point Georgetown by Dianna Anderson
Oil 9 x 12
 
Dianna painted Indian Point, Georgetown on location in Maine the day after the 2019 Oil Painter's of America's Great American Paint Out. This spot is near the mouth of the Kennebec River and the entrance to Sagadahoc Bay is around the bend. This day the light and location made Dianna try a different way of painting. "I wanted a more direct approach, one without a preliminary drawing, block-in or use of thinner or medium. This technique seemed like fun so I painted it free-style. Trying to be expressive, I used straight juicy oil paint. I was trying to depict the soft light and subtle color that danced before me."

Oaks Neck, Kennebunk by Dianna Anderson
Oil 12 x 16
 
Dianna's favorite rock in Kennebunk had been on her bucket list to paint since she first saw it many years ago. Maine is well known for its rocky coastline which is great to behold at anytime of day in all kinds of weather. In Oaks Neck, Kennebunk, Dianna was inspired to portray the beauty of this sea eroded rock at the water's edge in the evening light.

Biography
Artist's Statement 
 "Most of my work begins en plein air so that I can express nature's grand beauty first hand as an Expressive Realist.  All my life I have been in awe of the world around me. To be able to create interpretations of those ethereal moments, I pursue the interaction of light, atmosphere and color with form. Some things that inspire me include the movement of water, quality of light, subtle color illuminations and the character of the landscape. In my work, I strive to recreate in paint that something special which drew me to want to paint my subject in the first place."  
 Biography
Dianna earned a degree in Art Education and a Masters in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern Maine. She taught drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, stained glass, and AP Studio Art to high school students in Maine for over 21 years. Retired from teaching, Dianna devotes all her time to painting and exhibiting. She primarily paints with oils creating land and seascapes, still life and flowers.
 
Dianna is an award-winning artist whose paintings can be found in private collections, galleries and juried shows across the country. She has studied with master artists in Maine, New Hampshire, Florida, and abroad. Dianna is a member of the American Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, the American Artists Professional League and the American Society of Marine Artists. 
 
It’s as tricky to define how or why one makes art as it is to define why one buys art. It’s a visceral thing from the artist's choice of subject, medium, color palette and the feeling of the painting. Why does a painting stop you as you walk through a gallery or browse online? Dianna hopes her paintings will attract you in this way.
