About the Artwork
Medium: acrylic on gallery wrap
Size: 36" x 36"
Award Winning Artist Sonya Diimmler is known for her dramatic use of color, whether painting South Carolina landscapes or her favorite subject and muse her bulldog General Smedley.
Sonya’s lake and Lowcountry work regularly adorns High Noon’s windows at the corner of Highway 6 and Dutch Fork Road where she sells her work. You can also find her locally at The Houston House.
Sonya is an active member of the Crooked Creek Art League. You can follow her on Instagram @sonyadiimmlerart.
Painting is - regardless of subject - an emotional and physical response to the world. My process is an alla prima pouring out of paint and silenced emotions. Their escape onto the canvas informs my style, my voice. Whether painting colorful land and skyscapes, dogs or abstracts, it is from line and gesture that I derive great satisfaction. For that reason I prefer to paint large and loose without regard for the details of realism.
