The beauty of each flower is fleeting. Our beauty in the Lord endures forever.
The "Flowers of the Field" series is inspired by
Matthew 6:25-29 New International Version (NIV) Bible:
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith?
Diane LaVern Robbins (DL Robbins) has lived in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and currently Kansas. She shares her home with her husband Rusty. She is known to sneak to the garage to rummage through Rusty's tool bag for a putty knife for her latest painting. Each piece is comprised of multiple layers of painting applied with various knives. The last thing she wants is perfection. Her work has a distressed feel creating depth, texture, movement, and emotion. Diane comes to the art world with a background in business and non-profit fundraising. She completed her Master’s Degree in Business Administration and is recognized nationally as a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE). She began painting in 2000 while living in New Mexico. Inspired by the beauty of nature and creative works of others - she is self-taught. Her first piece entered in competition won a grand champion award. Encouragement from family and friends motivated her to begin to sell her work through art shows. In her first show, 25% of her work sold.
