‘Dare to Dream’

 Newest piece for my upcoming show at the Athens Art Center, Athens, TN. The show opens November 5th and runs through most of December. The piece is 24x36 and I have to say I really love it. Because of the pandemic there is no satin finish spray varnish to be found, so this will have to be sealed with a matt finish. Not my favorite but it is a sign of the times. Once we get through the holiday season, I hope to do a larger piece with colorful characters 👍. ENJOY…

September Art Opening

Have been really busy getting ready for this show. That is why I did not do much posting for the last two months.  This show was at the “Emporium’ in downtown Knoxville, TN. It opened last night, September 3rd.  The venue is huge and featured 5 different artists. The show runs through September. There were about 800-1000 people who came through and sales were made, ( I love it when my work is displayed in someone’s home👍). My next show is scheduled for November in Athens, TN. Ya’ll come ….

Saturday Night in Cartoonville


A frivolous piece on paper (11x14). It just happened, do not know what to tell you…I just had a major birthday and I think I have lost my mind. But it is cute so I will share it for now. ❤️Di

In The Garden


Newest piece. Thanks to COVID I have not had a show in over a year BUT now I have two big shows scheduled for this fall. Since, I could not socialize last year, I had plenty of time to work! Now the dilemma is to choose which paintings I want to show not the usual ‘do I have enough,’ conundrum.

Last year was very hard on artists. Yet the sun is shining and life, as we knew it sort of , returns….❤️

No title yet.....


Heaven only knows what was going through my head with this one BUT I like it! Am working on more complexity in my work and continually pushing myself-somewhat frustrating at times. I think the blood, sweat, and tears will be worth it eventually. I am counting on it!

“The Fish Monger”


This is my newest painting. The fish monger has a pinch of salt in his hand and the fresh catch of the day. Just a continuation of my ‘village characters’.  For some obscure reason this piece took me a long time. I think it is 24x36, so not a huge piece. I like it, so that is all that matters.  Hope you do too! Di

Portrait Challenge

 Have been participating in a challenge- #anodetowomen.  Thirty portraits, one a day for thirty days. We are only suppose to spend 30 minutes on each one but I must admit that some have taken a little longer. Here are my four favorite so far. We are only 9 days into the challenge.

“Tell Me Your Secrets”

 In my head I see a dialogue going on about confidences. The houses symbolize life, journey, families, and a myriad of happenings that are being shared. Birds for me are wisdom. 

This painting is magical and lets the mind wonder. IMHO

It has been a while...


Sorry-did not realize I hadn’t posted in so long! Sold a house, bought a house, and am renovating said house. And of course blogger has changed some of the ways of doing things in the meantime!

Have started a series on Delphi/Strong Women. Among other things. Have gotten studio set up and pretty much a ‘go’ from now on.

These are 11x14, so reasonable size  and on sale in my ETSY shop which of course is called DiFergi’s...
