A Little About Me...
Specializing in oil painting and whimsical drawings, unusual and everyday sights are what I love to paint. Still life studies, vintage scenes, landscapes, remembrances, beloved pets and those animals which touch our hearts have unique meaning to me.
Portraits and pet portraits are a specialty of mine and my online gallery www.DianeKraudelt.com has examples. All portraits are done to your specifications. Email me at
for more information.

A bit about my prints from FineArtAmerica...
The prints offered here at FineArtAmerica.com are generally of original oil paintings. My prints are not of photographs, painted over photos (the latest popular craze) or of computer-generated art but original, one-of-a-kind oil paintings and, as such, the glossy oil plus my rough, uneven technique does not lend itself to produce a perfect image of a painting. My support, usually rough canvas, also has imperfections and a weave which may be discerned on a photo. While smooth watercolors and thin acrylics have characteristics which give a flatter, more generally accepted image, my medium does not. Thus is the nature of my fine artwork is not enhanced by a more expensive camera or better lighting, unfortunately.
Thank you for taking time to view my artwork!
