Inspiration / by Diana Woods

I'm working on new pieces to take to a show at Kiechel Fine Art in Lincoln, Nebraska opening March 23rd, 2012.

Much of my work is inspired by the passage of time, cycles of nature and of course, trees.  I'm still interested in exploring the tree series and have been taking them in some interesting directions.  One of the pieces for the show features a large, winding, twisted tree climbing to the sky. Instead of my usual gold leaf or metal, I've painted the inside of the tree in a symbolic story of memories.  A woman stands underneath the tree, reaching up toward a leaf.  The sky is full of stars.

Stay tuned for some photos of this and other pieces I'm working on!
