Diana loves to paint in plain air. The motives through which she cannot pass calmly are tractors and ships. Motives of nature - Lithuanian meadows and the sea are also common in her work, sometimes she paints abstractions. She has developed a special painting technique inspired by philosophy.
She loves to travel very much and, as she says, she collects impressions and the first times because only that is valuable in life. New motives and color palettes come from new places. For example in the plein airs that took place in the mountains (Greece and Poland) she painted mountains. In order to paint, you need to see and feel, says the author. That feeling of impression is transformed into paintings and brings to the viewer the coolness of the sea and the softness of the grass.
The paintings, made with oil painting techniques, are full of bright colours and freshness. They seem to surround the viewer with the impression experienced by the author and ensure a good mood for a long time. When looking at the paintings, all the worries seem to move and fade away. They never get boring, because filled with the inner life inspired by the author, they reveal their new planes to the viewer every time.
