About David King:

David King is a self-taught watercolor artist, specializing in nature’s many moods. He started painting in 1967 while serving in the Air Force, stationed in Wyoming. He experimented with many different media, settling on transparent watercolors because of the challenge. After practicing dentistry in Michigan for 31 years, he retired to Southwest Florida, returning to Michigan in the summer to enjoy fishing, hunting, and traveling throughout the United States, Canada, and Alaska for inspiration, concentrating on birds and animals in their habitat. He has been participating in juried fine art shows in the upper Midwest and now in Southwest Florida for 40 years.
David’s paintings are in many private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad. He is an award winning artist, having been invited to the Winners Circle Show of the Art Council of Southwest Florida, poster artist for Art on the Rocks in Marquette, Michigan, and the Cape Coral Art Show. His most memorable experience was being accepted as Artist-in-Residence in Denali National Park, Alaska, where one of his paintings in on display at Eielson Visitors Center.

Hirdie Girdie Gallery is pleased to announce as the February Guest Artist  – Diane Ripoll

Plan on meeting Diane at our art reception on February 10th, 2022 from 5 – 8pm.

About Diane Ripoll:

“I was born with a natural fascination with brilliant color and abstract ideas. I have had the good fortune of traveling the world and my mind has become a vast well of snapshots and experiences that my subconscious draws upon to create my paintings. I choose the color that attracts me at the moment, then continue to add colors and watch how they flow, mix and move. The paintings begin to form themselves. I stand back, find what is hidden, and begin to consciously bring it out. Only when the work is completed do I find the true meaning of the piece and what inspired it. With each completed piece, I look forward to revisiting the story it tells.
Having had no formal training, I rely on optimism, experimentation and intuition to create my work. Optimism and intuition being the key factors. I rarely paint with subject intent. I am methodical, but not, a perfectionist, but not. I am indeed a perpetual student, grateful for the mentors I have been so fortunate to rub elbows with. The world can be a tough place, so my goal is to constantly improve my skills and set a lighter tone through color and often humor for myself and my viewers. I consider it a great privilege to paint and be heard above this noisy world without speaking. ”
