Diane Romanello 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 lake fronts, or boardwalks which invite a walk on the beach, her images suggest the memory of a treasured place.
Romanello’s paintings blend luxuriant and soothing color with sumptuous texture, her brush strokes 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. The artist states, "I want the viewer to feel as though they can step right into my work."
Her images are extremely useable in a variety of settings since she uses soft, muted colors that work in almost any interior. Her versatile prints are easy to frame in either traditional or contemporary frames.
With her one-person shows consistently selling out, she has established her reputation with selection by private and corporate collections throughout the United States, including AT&T, Columbia Pictures, and Equitable Life Insurance.
