Diana Riverstone, Riverstone Art

Big Sky Trail

Diana has always loved art and creating beautiful things. She took art classes all though high school, winning awards for her serigraphs (silk screening process). Then careers happened and art got left behind.  Before retiring, Diana found an oil painting class through Cheyenne Parks and Recreation and got hooked on painting in her first class. Diana decided to take some art classes when she retired to see if she still had any talent. She switched to acrylics and water based mediums because they offer unlimited potential to create special effects in her work. Some very special paintings developed from simply wondering what else she could do with her materials and experimenting with them.

Diana creates original, realistic landscape paintings from wide plains panoramas to mountains, forests, deserts and caves. Her work comes in a variety of sizes and color palettes to suit any taste and decor. She also created a special Cave Series where the viewer feels as though they are standing in a cave looking outward.  Diana also paints on both sides of a piece of glass – the background on the back side and the foreground on the front.


Midnight Magic

The uniqueness of Diana’s work can include thin to very thick applications of pastes that create thick textures up to one inch above the canvas or “crack” in unique ways. She also use various paint mediums like sand, fibers, flakes and mica for interesting textures. These painting mediums create their own shadows for interesting and unusual effects. For subtle sparkle, sheen, and shifting color depending on your angle of view, Diana uses iridescent, metallic and interference paint and additives. Several paintings have won awards in various art shows. Prices depend on size and materials, and generally run from $75.00 to $500.00, plus appropriate taxes and shipping if needed.

Cougar Country

Diana’s work can be found in the gallery and gift shop at the Cheyenne Artists’ Guild off Morrie Avenue in Holiday Park, Cheyenne. She also has two pieces at Emerald Foam Control Products off Camp Stool in Cheyenne.  Diana would love to have her paintings for sale in additional stores and galleries.
