Diane Copenhaver


“During this time of social distancing,  would you be willing to send images of the art being created in your studio during this crisis? ” 

 

“Wonderful idea. I have a few new pieces that I photographed just this evening.I hope this finds you well. Prospering would be nice, too, but that seems a bit out of reach for us these days.”

“You would think that I would be getting more done with all of this time on my hands… Well, I actually am, but it is all priority stuff queued up by circumstances beyond anyone’s control at the moment. That said, here are a couple of images for you to use. These are all pieces that are basically available, which is to say, at this writing, they are not on display in galleries or shows anywhere. The jewelry box been displayed recently, but it was made in January, so it is recent. The free form is still on the lathe, It will be done in a few days. For the time being I plan to leave the bark, moss, etc. on the piece.” Tom Willing

Sculptural free form work by Tom Willing.

 

Tom Willing designs that combine the aesthetic and functional with works that are sensitive to the interplay between light, form, and material.

 

 

Tom Willing’s work is elegantly finished on the lathe with walnut oil and beeswax, then buffed to bring out the natural luster of the wood.

“I seek to find the visual magic within the form of each piece of timber that is waiting to be revealed.”

 

Tom Willing holds his BA degree from the University of Oregon, an MA from Ohio State University, and an MAT from Lewis and Clark University. He taught middle school in Newberg, Oregon, until retiring in 2013.

Past President and Certified Member of the Pacific Northwest Woodturning Guild, he teaches woodturning techniques and is an active member of Northwest Woodturners and the American Association of Woodturners. He currently serves as President of Frogwood, A 501(c)(3) Arts Education Organization.

 

 

“Omnium-Gatherum”  by Barbara Martin  36×48 mixed media

“Created during the depths of winter, this painting is a loving incantation of everything floral — the first thrilling hints of springtime, the heady scent of roses, the glamour and mystery of a moonlit garden. With its many layers, the piece displays alluring depth and richness of color in an imaginative and impressionist style. Exciting color combinations and gestural movement bring high energy and a bold freshness to this beautiful painting. Mixed media: acrylic, charcoal, watercolor pencil, watercolor crayon on generously deep, gallery wrapped canvas.”

 

Barbara Martin is a contemporary painter known for high energy, gestural mark making and intuitive abstract works as well as for her “Super Ply” series of surreal creatures painted in black and white. Her award winning work has been exhibited nationally. Recent achievements include residencies awarded by Jentel Foundation for the Arts, Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts, and Hypatia-in-the-Woods and significant grants from the Oregon Arts Commission and the Regional Arts and Culture Commission.

 

“I have enclosed a couple of photos of a piece I am currently working on.  The photos of this in process piece are taken from a couple of angles showing my work space. Stay safe and healthy.”  Diane Copenhaver
Diane Copenhaver attempts to immortalize the power of art. With that art has the power to transform, heal, progress and enrich.

She recently embarked on a journey of discovery to unleash her creative talents after a career in business with a major northwest aerospace company.

Diane is painting primarily abstract using acrylics on varied surfaces. She also produces collage and mixed media works, is studying calligraphic arts and has begun to explore encaustic painting.

Color and texture are often the focus of Diane’s paintings. She uses layers of paint, as well as a variety of mediums to create texture. Color is selected to express a message, demonstrate beauty, or create energy. Brushes, palette knives, and scrapers are used and she often applies paint then wipes it away. Diane’s work is spontaneous and she is encouraged to let go of the precious and just let the paint flow.

“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….

“Emerging Spring” by Diane Copenhaver

“I see March as a time of encouragement, renewal and rebirth.
Nature begins to awaken with fresh, new signs of growth.
From the bright greens that begin to emerge from the budding trees to the first sightings of color as the early blooming flowers begin to awaken, a hope of newness emerges.
These thoughts of spring informed my painting entitled Emerging Spring.”

 

 

“Keep a Tree” abstract painting by Diane Copenhaver

I enjoy the visual language of abstract art and the freedom of non-representational painting. Creating a work from an emotion, a memory, or an impression and bringing it to life through color, texture, and lightness or darkness is my creative interest.”

 

 

“Enter the Cool Breeze…” abstract work in progress for a future exhibit  Ode to the Tides by Diane Copenhaver

“I am moved to create a sense of mystery or wonder in my work; inviting the viewer into the painting to explore the energy of color, the texture of the layers, or the mystery of the shadows. In this way, I hope to provide freedom of space for the viewer to create their own story about the work.”  –Diane Copenhaver

 

For March, an exhibition at Fairweather House and Gallery, little word gems painted by Diane Copenhaver, art that may be mounted on a wall or placed marching along on a table surface.

The show covers every aspect of art, textures, materials and finishes, highlighting the quintessentially colorful fall season.

 

“Shape and Color, Fairweather’s September exhibition, would not be such a success without the beautiful work created by NW hands.  The selected artists provided new work to highlight the annual fall show.  We thank them all for the extraordinary opportunity to tell a seasonal story with their art.  Truly, the artists offered new exceptional work, and by doing so, they encourage those of us in the arts, to do more.”  Fairweather Gallery

Series of mixed media paintings by Diane Copenhaver

 

 

 

“Color and Shape are key elements in the language of abstract art.  Both of these elements of design offer infinite possibilities to communicate visually. Both have the power to create an energy that is almost palpable.   Whether cool and calming, warm and energizing, light or dark, color can transport us to another place or time.   Shape can create an illusion, a feeling, or sense of something.  In my current art work, I have used both of these elements of design incorporating colors inspired by the beautiful Oregon coast and explored the continuum of abstraction through shape,” Diane Copenhaver.

 

 

 

Grace note received from the artist

 

“I have completed painting 3 new abstract pieces ( each canvas is 12×12).  Lots of color.  I am close to completing another large piece, 24×30.” –Diane
