Book Description

There are 36 full color reproductions in this autobiographical art book. Because of the nature of Diane Knopf?s inspiration and her positive take on life, each painting carries with it a life lesson that covers a range of experiences including living with a chronic illness, adoption, loss of loved ones, divorce, cancer survival and a new chance for love. The first part of each chapter depicts a chapter in her life and the artwork it inspired. The second part, titled Metadata, describes her creative process, explaining the subject matter, the symbols, the very essence of that particular piece. Ultimately, this unique art book reads like a non-fiction novel and a self-help book. There are 141 pages and 22 chapters.
