Historical Context:
Diane Deremo is a native of Grand Rapids, MI. She draws her landscape inspiration from her love of the Midwestern countryside. She tries to draw and paint outdoors as much as possible in order to capture the true characters, moods, lights, and colors of her subjects. The real beauty of a painting, she believes, is in the initial sketches and brushwork. Painting is an emotional response to nature and the rapidly diminishing rural character of the Midwest.
