Original Paintings by Diana Riverstone
Thanks for visiting!
Creating works of art using acrylic paints and mediums is my joy! I love exploring what is possible with textures (modeling pastes, crackle paste, textural mediums etc.) and unusual paints including iridescent, interference and metallic. Some of my work has been called "3D" or "sculptural" painting because of the very thick texture which can raise portions of the work up to an inch above the canvas!
I also love experimenting with supports and what effects they have on my work. Painting on glass creates a 1/8" separation between the background (painted on the back side of the glass) and the subject (painted on the front side of the glass) which gives an interesting and surprising depth to the work.
Unfortunately, most of the unique effects I create don't show up on photographs, which is why I include a "painting details" page where some descriptions of the work help flesh out the photos.
The Gallery page shows my work grouped in five categories. The Painting Details page gives the size, colors, description and pricing information. About Me presents my Artist's Statement and a brief bio as well as venues where I am currently showing my work. The Contact page gives all that pertinent info.
