Happy New year!

It is already mid January of the New Year 2020!

I have been in my studio working on new art and enjoying the winter landscape outside my window.

We started out the year with warm temperatures, but winter has finally caught up with us here in Pennsylvania.  We have some snow and it finally is cold.

I will be posting my new shows for 2020 on my website www.dianephalen.com very soon.

Enjoy Winter!

"Winter Blues"

New Art!  I love seeing the fox in my yard.
Winter snow with a full moon always so beautiful!!

After I posted yesterday about our no snow, I woke up to a beautiful snow-covered woodland scene outside my window!!  So very pretty!  It melted already but I enjoyed a winter walk in the woods behind my home!

Christmas is almost here!

I finished my last show of the year this weekend.  My favorite Winter months are here.  I enjoy celebrating the season of Christmas!  My decorations are up, my home is cozy.  I am finishing my Thanksgiving painting and getting ready to paint snow scenes!

We have not had our first snow here.  I love the dark days of Winter!

Enjoy the Christmas season!

Merry Christmas!

Suddenly November is here!  The leaves are all almost off the trees .  I can not believe that I had two shows in November.  They were well attended and I loved meeting everyone and signing my art!

I will continue to post new shows at www.dianephalen.com.  I really enjoy getting out of my studio to meet so many great people!

I am busy in my studio finishing my Autumn art and am getting excited to work on my Christmas and Winter ideas.

Enjoy the beauty of November and in case life gets busy and I forget to post...Have a wonderful, Blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends!!

Halloween is almost here!

I blinked and summer turned in to fall!  I have been very busy painting and even took some time for my annual vacation to Ocean City, New Jersey.  I loved walking on the beach and boardwalk.  It was a great week!  I am now getting ready for my Fall shows!  I have 3 in November!
 December will be spent in my studio painting my annual Christmas painting and enjoying the Season!  Enjoy Autumn!  I am sharing a few photos from my time at the shore!!

Labor Day Weekend

I can not believe that Summer is almost over and Fall is on the way.  I notice the change in the dark mornings and cool temperatures.  Already pumpkin spice is making its way in the stores as well as Halloween candy.
  It is back to school for everyone!  I have been painting a beach scene with thoughts of my Fall paintings to begin soon.
  I love the beautiful Fall months but am not looking forward to cool weather.
My first Fall show is September 21 and 22, 2019.
It is on my website www.dianephalen.com.

Missing Mom

I have been busy all Summer and have not been on my blog.  I finished two shows in July.

Today I am remembering my beautiful Mom as I do every day.  On August 5 she was called home to be with God.  My faith believes she is in Heaven with her family and my Dad.  I miss her so very much.  All the wonderful memories we created in our life together.  I love you Mom.
