Follow me on Instagram: diannearnettepaintings I post my newest works there.
New products are coming soon!
My parents knew that I was an artist when my first grade teacher wanted me to stay in the lines....and I wouldn't!
I never had a formal art class until I got to college and I loved it. I was not an art major, but later I took figure drawing and painting in graduate school. I have attended many workshops over the last 30 years and count many of the most well known artists as my mentors.
I have always been fascinated with art...and well...paint! I love to paint and that is what I do..
While I love WATERCOLORS and use them more than other mediums, I also use ACRYLICS and other drawing materials if I think they add to my work.
I am somewhat of a wild painter....I am not worried about doing it the "right" way....I do it my way and enjoy the freedom of there being no right or wrong way...I believe that Art is in the process! Hopefully you will love the art.
Everything I see has some influence on my work.....the light, the subject, the mood and the shape.
I enjoyed nature and being outdoors whether in the city or the country....there is so much to amaze me. When I see a color change in a shadow or at a different time of the day...I am inspired.
It has been a busy Spring....I have entered in several shows and am honored to have won 1st and 2ond place in the Woman's Club of Fort Worth, Annual Art Show. My paintings, "My Window Sill" and "Sunday at the Pier" were honored with awards from Nationally known Judge, Ann Harvey.
RUSHMORE, was accepted into the 2018 Society of Watercolor Artist International Show. Awards will be announced on May 20...stay tuned and
send me your good lucks....Many wonderful paintings from around the world are in this show...
I am a "dog person" and recently have been painting some dogs....this is one that I love...
For those of you who would like to see my paintings....They are on exhibit in Dr. Robert Warren's office at Opthamology Associates South office Laser Center. They can be purchased there and for you who have not been to a show...go by there Tues-Friday and they are on display in the waiting area. Call me and I can meet you there anytime.
I AM HONORED to have been chosen to show my work at the Community Art Center show that is so important to the city of Fort Worth. This show runs for a month and everything is for sale during the show. A portion of sales is donated to the Fort Worth Historic Society. I will have 7 works there including one that tells a story of one of the historic events of Fort Worth. Please come see it and call me for more information.
