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.  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, light quality and mood, subtle color illuminations and the character of the landscape. In my work, I strive to reveal the moment of seeing and feeling that “something special” which inspired me to paint my subject, hoping the viewer may share the experience too. It is my hope that the joy and peace I feel when I am painting transfers into my work conveying a respite of serenity to the viewer."  
 
 Biography
 
When Dianna was eight years old, she received a 'Paint by Numbers' set as a gift. Over the next few years, painting that way became her hobby. Fifteen years later, she met an artist who generously gave Dianna her first oil painting lesson and she was hooked. Little did Dianna know that she had found what would turn out to be her lifelong love of painting.
 
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. Teaching was fun and offered her a great opportunity to learn even more. The school calendar provided valuable time off so that Dianna could paint. “Reflecting back on those years, I realized that I taught so that I could paint.” Throughout her career, Dianna painted weekends, school vacations and summers. Her work was exhibited in group, solo and local juried shows and for a few years, she even did [...]
