Diana Levinson

I saw this abstract artist in action on Martha Stewart about a week ago, so I just had to check out her work on her Web site. I love the colors and the movement in each piece I saw in her online gallery, which contained oil and charcoal paintings and prints made through etching and aquatint. I love the whole gallery, but if I had to choose a few favorites, I suppose they would be Meter, Naples, Diptych I, Meander I, Vertical Tangle and Page from a Sketchbook IV. Levinson also has a video of herself painting one of her masterpieces, which is fun to watch. I usually work with acrylic paint, but I am tempted to grab some oil paint and "go to town." Her work is truly amazing and inspiring.
