“Life in Bloom” by Diane Copenhaver

 

“The gallery theme for April, ‘Life Abundant’, is special to me.   Art is a part of the abundance in my life.   Whether creating my own works or viewing and appreciating the talents of other artists, art enlivens me and deeply touches my spirit.  When I think about a life of abundance, it is one filled with richness of spirit, diverse experiences, and cherished relationships.”   Diane Copenhaver

 

‘Wishes for Happiness’

Acrylic on Canvas, 36′ X 24′

Note received

 

“Sorry to have a bit of delay in getting this statement to you.  I  kept tinkering with it.  But, finally, here is the statement for the April Art Walk.  I have photographed the art in horizontal positions but I believe they will work equally well in a vertical  display for ‘Life Abundant’.   As we discussed, I focused on the idea of flowers, yellows, and purple.”

 

 

 

“As an abstract artist, my goal is to express the feeling of abundance.  Color and shape are the design elements selected to communicate a sense of abundance in my work. With the glory of spring emerging, I chose to use flowers as my inspiration.  May we all have an abundant life filled with the colors of spring and art that enriches our lives.”

 

Diane  Copenhaver is a resident of the northwest. She recently embarked on a journey of discovery to unleash her creative talents after a career in business with a major aerospace northwest company. Art classes at Bellevue College have provided foundational skills focused on the principles and elements of design, color theory and harmonies, and painting techniques and processes….
