CD Calkins New Paintings
Many of the concepts and themes represented in current work were developed in a small format, and then built upon to create new series. 

Diane uses brayers, rollers, bubble wrap, kitchen tools and a variety of other materials with interesting textures to layer and build these experimental new paintings. She indulges the eye with lush layering of thick textures and patterns, allowing the image in the painting to reveal itself. Focusing on the emotional feeling she has throughout the application of her paint to develop an image, and occasionally with the first roll of her brayer identifing the story she intends to tell. With a bright color pallet and verve unrivaled by many other accomplished artists, Diane continues to bring new themes to her art and shares them with all of us.
