“Color and Shape are key elements in the language of abstract art. Both of these elements of design offer infinite possibilities to communicate visually. Both have the power to create an energy that is almost palpable. Whether cool and calming, warm and energizing, light or dark, color can transport us to another place or time. Shape can create an illusion, a feeling, or sense of something. In my current art work, I have used both of these elements of design incorporating colors inspired by the beautiful Oregon coast and explored the continuum of abstraction through shape,” Diane Copenhaver.
“I have completed painting 3 new abstract pieces ( each canvas is 12×12). Lots of color. I am close to completing another large piece, 24×30.” –Diane
