Diane L Farquhar Hallstrom
Living the Western Experience One Painting at a Time
"The true work of art is but a
shadow of the divine perfection."
"The first virtue of a painting is to be a feast for the eyes."
After the Fire
Straight From Farqart Studio:
Diane is the Featured Artist at the Hood Avenue Art Gallery in Sisters Oregon beginning with the 4th Friday Artwalk on April 28th until May 26th, 2023. She is presenting a new process and style of painting that combines abstract with realism. Several of the paintings depict an abstract background with a realistic subject. Subjects are varied and include a moose, a horse, a bear and a gathering of deer.
Other paintings depict landscapes and show her love of skies, wide open spaces, and depth. Often, she presents a barrier in the foreground in an attempt to get the viewer to look through and beyond the foreground to see the really truth, beauty, and significance of the painting. It is her way to encourage everyone to look and think beyond what they see and hear in life.
Beyond painting, Diane is a published poet, writing Haiku and free verse. She recently submitted several Haiku for publication.
