to live in awe & gratitude ~
"The moment one gives attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious awesome indescribably magnificent world in itself." ~ Henry Miller
That quote best describes my philosophy about life and art. I am in constant awe & in a state of gratitude over God's creation. I open myself up to all it's beauty and wonder, let it fill my heart and senses, and then try to capture the essence, the feeling of that with art. It is my hope that some of my art speaks to your heart .
Diane Rank's stylized landscapes are painted from memory, imagination and heartfelt feelings. Her art is in private collections all over the U.S. as well as Australia, Canada, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. She works out of her small home/studio in the beautiful Green Mountain state - Vermont.
