Description Watercolor 15x11; suggest 20x16 frame. Third in my series of doors which we photographed while travelling to France on different trips. This door is special because it is on the same street where my husband's ancestors lived in the early 1800s. Amazing to see how the old parts of cities survive and not much change happens to the appearance and the industry which continues the same.
Diana Nadal, Portland Member Since March 2014 Artist Statement I am a native Oregonian, mother of 3, grandmother of 3 and wife of 50 years who had found creative outlets as an interior designer and business owner before focusing my creative energy to being a full-time artist 13 years ago.
My inspiration comes from family travels, wine, reflections and shadows on water and other surfaces, scenes with people doing ordinary but interesting things and portraits. I can't resist painting an interesting face! I prefer to paint realistically but lately my emphasis has been on more expressionistic and abstract subjects.
I taught my first workshop on Exploring Liquid Watercolors Using webbing, textures and other techniques--"Making It Your Own," and am interested in teaching artists how to start their own critique groups.
