When you paint “Joy” the people who see your painting can feel “Joy”. It’s wonderful to be able to create paintings that also bring happiness and joy to the viewers. When I was in Nagano, Japan over thirteen years ago, my Japanese collectors all said the same thing --- Diane-san, when it is winter here and cold and dark, we will look at your paintings and feel joy and happiness. Of course, they said it in Japanese (which is shiawase desu). Those three weeks in Japan before the Olympics, started me on my journey with my art!
Wishing us all “Joy” in our lives!
