Sneak Peek Friday


Welcome to Sneak Peek Friday.

Lately, I'm trying to listen to my inner voice and act on the little opportunities presented to me.  I heard about a 6" art show right here in the O.C., from the radio program "Artists Helping Artists" last October.  So the show came and went, and I later heard on the program how successful it was.  So now coming up in April, the Randy Higbee Gallery will be having another 6" show.

This time,  I'm going to act on the opportunity to enter 3 of my 6" x 6" paintings in the show.    I could use a little help with my selection...can you leave me a comment and pick your 3 favorite paintings from below? 

  







Also,  I am so excited to announce my next "Women Who Create Beautiful Things" interview with our sweet Georgia peach, Terri Smith, of Dimples & Dragonflies.  Can you guess the job she retired from?  She also talks about her gallery experience....Come back and read on Sunday and see how Terri listened and acted on her inner voice, too.

If you enjoy Sneak Peek, come link up at Studio JRU and join in the fun!

Oh My Goodness Sweet Diana! What A Great Opportunity To Show Off Your Stunning Artwork! The Three I Love Most Are.."The Sweet Puppy ~ The Floral Piece ~ And The Trolley". Your Work Is Phenomenal! And Your Effort To Help Other Artists In Sharing Moves My Spirit. Sending You A Big Southern Hug This Beautiful Friday Afternoon!

All of them are so wonderful that it is very hard to choose any certain ones, but if you insist, I guess I love the puppy, the skater and the trolley car. Any of them would be great though. :-)

I love them all, but I would say flower, mountains, people.

Cindy said...

Wow,

Definitely I would say your dog portrait (since that is one of your focuses), the people (because I think you really have a talent for capturing personal moments in your paintings of people that appeal to a wide variety of folks)...and for some reason the flowers really popped out to me...

Beautiful as always...recently, I shared your site with someone in a business course I was taking who wanted to do custom graphic paintings of pets...and I told that person that you were already doing it and to check you out...

Blessings!

Yay for listening to that inner voice! This sounds like a really fun show! These are great pieces. My favorite 3... the dog, flowers and the red trolley. Looking forward to Terri's interview! :)

Keep listening to your inner voice...sometimes we just don't try. I love all of them, but if I have to choose I will be with the flowers, the people and the bus (i love that red bus. Thank you for let us be part of this wonderful experience!

Oh Diana, how exciting! I love all of them, but if I had to pick three it would be the puppy, the skater and the mountains.
Let us know which ones you pick.

My fave three are ... puppy LOOK ... Holding Hands with pop and Trolly on the move ... yes I rename them ... please forgive ... sometimes we artist have tunnel vision as to what the piece speaks to ... I love the artist interviews and your work ... Congrats on NO LONGER silenceN that TRUE inner voice ... a baby step in the journey! Happy dance TIME again!

Yay! Go for it! I vote for the trolley, the landscape the the dog. So funny, I read through all of the comments and I don't think it will be any help at all - we all like different ones! Art is so subjective. :)
