A new technique where oil and wax are mixed from the start, and gold leaf is added as the last layer, when the wax gets melted with a heating lamp. Sun-bathed beach scene in the midst of Martha's Vineyard where cliffs are made of rainbow colored clay which shines and transforms into abstractions.

The striking contrast between the sky and the water has always fascinated Diana, understanding the flow of constructed clouds vs the calming direction of waves in the horizon, that scene that one can engage us for hours and hours. Add to that the slight color nuances between the turquoise and cerulian, mimicking each other at times but having their own kingdom of influences. Water is regal and that is what this piece aims to show.

It pays off to wake up early, to have the world to yourself, and the early birds of prey. What an awakening sight – to have the waves crash against the rocks, full of morning rigor and vitality.


A jagged cliff dotted with cypress trees. This is the essence of Northern Californian coast line. It calls Diana in her dreams, this desire to record the wind in the delicate branches, the warm rocks against bright blue waters, the irreplaceable beauty of the open sea beyond the cliffs.

This was Diana's little girl’s first time on the beach, or the 1st time she truly felt it, on the banks of Brittany, in France. Diana wanted to capture this moment of initial exhilaration at  the sight of the water, at the opportunity to walk in and feel its cooling touch.


It's that dramatic time right when the thunderstorm is forming, where there're no boundaries between sea and sky, when things are truly melting into one another, wanting to be part of the same spectacle. Diana shows this yearning relationship to dissolve into the world.

This was just an incredible array of textures: from the glistening sun, to the sprinkles of light, to dramatically crashing waves, to warm inviting sand under one's feet. Looking at this piece makes me never want to leave.
