"I want the viewer to feel as if they could walk right into one of my paintings" ~ Diane
American Painter, 1944 Paradise Sunset by Diane Romanello
Diane Romanello, born in New York City, is a self-taught artist whose scenic paintings are characterized by a sense of beauty and romance, inviting the viewer into a serene natural world. Whether depicting pastel flower gardens lining a promenade, brick lanes leading to lakefronts, or boardwalks which entice a walk on the beach, her images suggest the memory of a treasured place.
Romanello’s paintings blend luxurious, soothing color with sumptuous texture, her brushstrokes evident in every image. Her luminous beach scenes, landscapes, gardens and country retreats merge elements of fantasy with realism, accomplished by the artist’s keen sense of light, texture and composition. She savors the intensity of color and calming energy inherent in nature.
Diane Romanello reaches a mythical place in her viewers. She strives to capture the place and a moment that transports her audience to an inner sanctuary. Few of us have lives that are rich with these moments. Diane Romanello graciously offers them to us, through her special talent and paintings.
Working in the romantic realism school, Diane Romanello invites the viewer to step right into her tranquil settings.
With her one-person shows consistently selling out, and her selection by private and corporate collections nationwide, including:AT&T, Columbia Pictures, Equitable Life Insurance and United Way of Long Island, Diane Romanello’s art is clearly well-received.
Romanello generously supports charitable organizations through her artwork. She contributed an original oil to United Way of Long Island to augment fundraising efforts, as well as donating “Idle Hour” to The McGaw Foundation, a non-profit arts industry endeavor for AIDS prevention, care and cure. Sales of the poster from “Idle Hour” directly benefit charities committed to supporting people living with AIDS.
