http://dianewidlerwenzelart.wordpress.com/This summer is a great time to concentrate on oil painting. To focus on my progress, I am continuing with a new blog. Originally the Diane Widler Wenzel Art was started because I lost functions on this one - most important of these functions to me was the ability to download pictures. After much grief, I was able to post pictures again. But still I like the idea of starting fresh in a new blog with only occasional posts at Umbrella Painting Journal.

- The idea for COLOR BRIDGES came from many sources. Portland State College 1962,Professor Frederick Heidel's first painting assignment was to make a grid and explore mixing colors to arrange on the grid to see how they would look. Moving these painted pieces of paper on different backgrounds bring back 4 years of studying painting with Heidel. Each arrangement I have made are like his assignments. They have a goal of basics while allowing the emotions freedom. Another source was Professor Mary MacIntire at Western Washington University who was a member of Fiber Design and I had the honor of photographing for a statement about her process. She used to move around pieces of colored paper to design her fiber works.
