Crescendoh - Diane Cook


My Friend, Diane Cook


Every now and then, a little angel walks into your life, and you think, wow, this is a great lady. I trust her immediately, and would like to get to know her a bunch better.

One of those little angels for me is Diane. She has been a constant inspiration to me, forever giving, and continually hysterical! Just all round nice.

She is featured on Jenny Doh's blog called Cresendoh, as one of her Guest Curators, and this is the link. Please click to read a wonderful bio about Diane's life, her inspiration, her desire for art, how friends have touched her life, and how helping others is her passion. No surprises there!

I am so proud to call Diane friend, and feel lucky to have her help in many areas. She is a wonderful teacher, and a hoot to take classes with. We laughed our way through Adorn Me in Houston together, finding humor in the silliest things, and cracking up like school girls. It was a blast. So if you're in her area, take a class from her, she is very talented teacher.

Good luck Diane, here's to your wonderful future and new discoveries, and the new retirement coming up followed with much success. Let's go find some more fun together soon!

I forgot to mention, the steer I'm holding is a memento Diane brought from Texas, one for me and Diana Frey, on her California visit. Well, I had to have him go back to Houston with me for photo ops. So almost every photo of me had the cow in it, even with the instructors. It was hysterical! Thanks ladies, I'm a lucky girl to know Diane! Hope you get the chance soon.

Hi Riki,
I hope you don't mind but I left a little something on my blog for you, I just had to share your talent with others. No pressure really!
