The new path I am taking.

For quite some time now ,I have been using my creative times to work on several new lines of  unique designs.  
The plan has been to get several lines designed that can be sold wholesale,
and be licensed to exceptional manufacturers.
I have been over-the-moon excited about what is about to be launched!
Right now my biggest area of concern, is how to focus on specific styles of art.  I am gifted in a way that allows me to do a vast array of techniques and styles, yet in being a Licensed Artist, it seems I will have to become more set in a "brand".  I have to find and settle on my own style and what direction I want to go....
or do I? 
Leave a comment: 
What would YOU like to see me paint? What artistic styles and themes would you like to see on dishes, kitchenware, bedding, wrapping paper...??

Ok, stay tuned... I would love to hear your ideas... keep watching!

Colored Pencil Portraits

Greetings once again!
It seems I have been given an amazing burst of creativity, and have been playing with my colored pencils.
These portraits are some that I have been doing in my sketchbook, and I use Prismacolor Pencils.

Hannah is my beautiful niece who has ever-changing hair color and multiple talents.

 Sarah is my niece as well, and here she is with her fun spider mask. She is a natural beauty with brains and a wonderful spirit!

This is my lovely mom, Dee.  I loved the photo of her, and have wanted to paint it or sketch it for awhile now.  She brings such joy to my life.

I have had a blast doing these and hope that I am able to continue sketching away!  Let me know what you think.... Hugs and prayers, Diana
 Also, Pin the artwork to your Pinterest boards!
