This is another art piece that came my way because someone wanted the frame! Tsk, tsk, tsk.
This sketch is a nice class sample because there are some guide lines that Dianne loosely sketched in. Students could see how the artist sectioned the page and began her sketch. Notice the center bottom line – and the whisper light perspective lines on the ceiling? This little sketch from Dianne Dengel (HERE) shows us how artists often have a signature style – and in this sketch we have those large eyes and soft curves that Dianne placed in her fictional portraits.
Artist Dianne Dengel received an artist’s BUMP when Mr. Fred Rogers in 1984 (from Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood) found a portrait Dianne had drawn of Fred’s father. Dianne went on to make two portraits of Fred had some of it recorded and shown on his show.
I also smiled when I read (here) that Dianne made a portrait painting for Oprah.
Dianne Dengel’s works are not my particular favorite, but she has a trademark signature look and most of her drawings make me SMILE! And that is linked to T’s weekly smile #49.
Side note, Oprah showed Dianne some love “back” because Oprah went our of her way to thank the artist with a photo and thank you note. How kind! Those kind gestures say so much about the heart of someone with so much fame…. still able to make time to thank someone… not just a standard card, but the pic and all that.
