Diana Johnson Diana paints Maine's colorful peaceful places. Her focus is the landscape and her first impression of a scene becomes a lasting impression when she paints it. She says that, "The beauty that surrounds us here is magical. Painting is my way to share what I notice about the world we live in." "To gaze upon one of Diana Johnson's paintings is to travel through space and time to a place you may once have been or may yet to go, creating a longing for a certain feeling or ethereal quality that experience tells us is good."
