I am fascinated by the concept of serendipity – the spontaneous discovery of one thing while searching for another. I rarely plan my art. I prefer to LET it happen rather than MAKE it happen.

    Spectacular painting Dana … this is amazing! See, you are exceptionally talented! Gorgeous greens … I’m now in love with your gemstone series!

  • Thanks Emily!!! How nice of you – the gemstone series was a fun one. It had over 100 paintings in it, but unfortunately I only have photos of a few of them. Someday I will go back to that technique and see what happens.
