Diana Cummings was born in Brookline, Massachusetts, and currently resides in Orange County, California. She attended Syracuse University College of Art, Boston University, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She studied at The Guzzi Studio in Newton, Mass. for many years as well. She has exhibited in several galleries in the Boston area and her paintings are in many private collections.
The paintings portray a world of serenity and beauty. “When I choose a subject, I am drawn to the magic of the trees, the sky, and the flowers. I try to lure the viewer to the tranquility and peace that can be seen in a doorway, a trellis, cascading wisteria, or a young woman reading in a pleasant setting.
Her artistic beginnings go back to her father who was an artist. Sunday drives in the countryside with him became art lessons. “I was taught [to see] the beauty of nature at a very young age.”
These images have been combined with in depth study of the techniques of the Impressionists. The attention to detail, the interplay of color, broken brush strokes, light and shadows, have lent an almost magical approach to the Monet inspired paintings.
