“The Wanderer” Oil Paintings by Diana Wright

Grab your keys and go….from a San Francisco luncheon to sun-drenched Cayucos and then to a cool, mist filled day in Bandon, Oregon, I have marveled at the endless beauty of the world. The landscape renews us, brings us joy and hope in a time filled with anxious thoughts and feelings. Yes, we are sorrowful at the shrinking of the natural world. We stagger at the perils of over civilization, pollution, global warming, the shrinking of animal habitats, the acidification of the oceans, (to name a few), as they loom over our lives in an endless stream of fear. However, the joy of creating seems to transcend my fear. As I paint, I am in prayerful reverence for nature and I hope to communicate love, joy, and transcendent hope.

Featured Upstairs Artist Show: Through the Looking Glass, Stained Glass Mosaics by Dean Buchser, Studio #4

Artist Statement Being an artist is a part of me, a part that fills my heart with fun, light and color. I am a craftsman, a master carpenter, a designer and builder of homes, and a wilderness river guide. This is all a part of what makes me who I am and what shapes the art I bring into this world. Creating mosaics for over twenty years, I thrive on the vibrant colors and reflections in my mosaic mirrors. The convex
