"Quilting Around Chautauqua" - Double-Matted Prints
Diane is pleased to offer fine art prints of her watercolors. The prints are high quality reproductions printed from Diane's original art. Diane features quiltscapes in most of her paintings derived from her inspiration around her Pennsylvania studio. Diane loves to travel when she can and be inspired by favorite places in Oregon, the ocean, wildlife, birds and nature in all it has to offer in it's seasonal beauty.
I am so fortunate to exhibit at the September show in Chautauqua, New York. The painting is a porch that wraps around the beautiful Athenaeum Hotel located on the shores of Lake Chautauqua. The rocking chairs are always there so you can enjoy the view, chatting with friends and a cup of coffee.
In September the porch is decorated with beautiful mums and pumpkins. The foliage is starting to change to reds and oranges. The quilts in the painting were from a wonderful quilter and instructor, Mattie Rhoades. My favorite is her “Pumpkin Seed” quilt in the foreground. A passing cat looks just like my cat Socks and greets me as I am sketching my idea.
The ferry is the Chautauqua Belle that carries happy passengers around beautiful Lake Chautauqua.
