Cohasset resident Dianne Panarelli Miller has been painting for over 35 years. The full-time artist generally spends her mornings teaching at local art associations, including in Cohasset, Marshfield and Duxbury, and her afternoons painting on location and finishing up projects at her studio. Her painting “Frosted Bridge” was inspired by a winter visit to Ames Nowell State Forest in Abington.
“I cross-country skied into the park after it snowed and I loved the way the bridge looked with a fresh coating of snow,” says Miller, whose artistic style is influenced by the “Boston School” of painting, which is known for its use of Impressionistic techniques. “The original Boston School way of painting combines the truth of impressionist color with good drawing, sound composition and skillful paint handling,” says Miller, whose images express a harmony of color and design.
Miller is the recipient of many local and national awards and is a member of the New England Plein Air Painters. She also enjoys painting at live events, including weddings, and leading artists on immersive retreats to Europe. Her 5th annual solo show will be on display at South Street Gallery in Hingham throughout the month of March.
