The Newington Art League will meet on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at 6:30 pm in the Newington Senior and Disabled Center at 120 Cedar St in Newington, CT. Following a short business meeting, Diana Lyn Cote will demonstrate paint sticks. These meetings are open to the public.
Using an oil paint medium very much like oversized crayons called Paintstiks®, Diana has perfected an unique application known as the ”Côté Squiggle.” She paints by calling upon her “inner three-year-old” and “scribbles” layer upon layer of erratic lines of color on the canvas. This eventually leads to a visual weaving of these individual lines into a textural tapestry that is both subtle and richly elegant. This is especially evident on larger canvases where the application holds equal importance to the study of light.
