" Lily Tango"
by Dianne Dean

A snippet from the artist about her life, her art and her muse:  " Most of my life has been involved with music- playing, teaching, conducting- always interpreting.  Recently, I traded my baton for a paint brush; now, I try to interpret what I see.  Whether in the studio or en plein air, one is challenged with color, value, composition, etc.  I enjoy painting with oil and watercolor and have had the opportunity to study with fine teachers in each medium." ~Dianne Dean
