Artist Diana J Smith Series Combines the New Mexico Landscape & Wild Wolf…

…Fine art by Diana J Smith can be viewed at

This new body of work feels like a cleansing. I have put aside collage and mixed media. Now I’m concentrating on paint, only including a few lines of suggestion with charcoal. It feels pure and clean. I have a passion for our canine companions and enjoy illustrating the focus shown in their eyes. My previous work has been figurative, with my subject matter being dogs or wolves.

In this series, I am delving back into abstract composition, where my formal training began, and adding just a touch of figurative. I have chosen a very warm, but bright palette, reminding me of the colors of the New Mexico landscape, then interjecting the wild wolf into this landscape. My vision is to create a pleasant, comforting place, while portraying the dignity and presence of the canine. website
