Artistry that transcends the senses

Reimagined in the year 2021 by

Dana M Harmon, Artist 

Painting Of Life is a gallery of paintings depicting my love of the forest, meadows, sunlight, water, blue skies, and seasonal colors exhibiting incredible and unique works of art along with the connection to love, joy, happiness, and spiritual renewal.  The gallery plans to host a number of exhibitions and events that help bring the general public closer to the wonderful world of art through acrylic and oil paint on canvas by virtue of expressionistic works through the eyes of "The Artist".

Small town girl, just making a dent in the world of Art.  This is what I know.  This is what I have learned.  This is my expression of all of those things.  This is me.  This is Joy.  Love.  Happiness.  Sunshine.  The color Aqua.  It makes me smile.  Enjoy life.  My expression of life is in vivid color and in textures coming from my palette knives, sponges and brushes to the canvas.  It brings me so much pleasure to bring these colorful images to life.  Please enjoy <3

This Spring acrylic painting is only available through Layor and was specially painted with Spring and new life in mind. There is a special surprise painted into the scene. I love the feeling of the Pacific NW and Oregon that I get from this wonderful image with it's evergreens, golden poppies, spring meadows of flowers, and blue skies.
