DIANNA LEE WOODGRAIN ARTIST

Artywood - Woodgrain art

Woodgrain artist, Dianna Lee, starts her subject matter by viewing the woodgrain in her bespoke oak panels.
Dianna is able to see a landscape forming within the grain or water ripples. (Spring at Lathkill Dale) 
If the grain doesn't lend to either of these concepts, Dianna uses the woodgrain for effects. Whether it is used as a background (Meadows) or sanding-out (Passionflower Vine)

FOREVER POPPIES

Original available.

Size: 24 H x 24 W x 0.8 in

Painting: Oil and Ink on Wood.

Like so many I was motivated to paint poppies to remember those who perished during the first world war, I was inspired by a personnel family loss in December 1915.

'Forever Poppies is a symbolic painting in memory of a relation - Ernest Crisp, serving with the 15th battalion, Royal Warwickshire regiment. He was fatally wounded on the edge of Maricourt Wood, Somme in France and died later in the night in a field hospital barely a month after been posted to France.

'Forever Poppies' represents the poppies for the thousands killed during the war, and that we must not forget. The oak branch in the foreground shows the edge of a wood, oak representing strength and courage of the British army. The acorns ( which are not around at the same time as poppies) and the sunset represents a new life for future generations that men and women during the war gave their lives too.


This is an oak panel painting using the grain of the wood to form the landscape.

Also available to order in Giclee prints and gift cards.
