Diane Tharp                                                      


Diane Tharp is a watercolor artist residing in Auburn, California.  Diane has been painting watercolors for approximately 20 years and tends to paint in themes based on nature.  She often infuses humor and whimsy in her paintings, which make them twice the fun to paint.


Diane has shown in many local galleries and art shows and has sold extensively.  She has had shows at 20th Street Art, and artwork in many shows at the Sacramento Fine Arts Center, Blue Line Gallery, Art Fiesta, Auburn Art Walk, and other venues.  She has had art selected to be part of the KVIE Art Auction, as well as the Effie Yeaw Gala and Art Action for several years.  Diane shows her artwork at the Gold Country Artists Gallery in Placerville and the Auburn Old Town Gallery.


“Painting a watercolor is an unfolding mystery.  You don’t know the outcome until the end.  The artist has an idea in her mind, but the fluid pigments have minds of their own.  The painting evolves and the outcome is always a surprise, be it successful or disappointing.  Painting watercolors is always a path of wonderment for me, and I never tire of the journey!"
