Diane McClary - Artist
Diane McClary has been dividing her time between the Seattle area and Palm Springs, California. This is a photo of her at La Quinta Cove, where she will be participating in the "Art Under the Umbrellas" plein air event on designated Saturdays in Old Town La Quinta through next April.
She studied with the late Russian master Sergei Bongart and offers workshops in the Palm Springs area.
"Each painting, a landscape, floral, or portrait is always a new experience in comparing the relationship of warm and cool colors. When I paint outdoors, I'm continuously striving to convey the emotions of the scene on canvas. The sound of nature, the smell of fresh air, the feeling of the wind all contribute to the total result."
