you’re growing a business and being a mother, so my art got sidelined. When [my girls left home], I thought, ‘How can I ease the pain of being an empty nester?’ That was my entree back into painting.” When a colleague invited Dana to paint a piece for an auction that benefits the UC Davis Children’s Miracle Network, she realized that the canvas still called to her. “I was hooked again on having a brush in hand as often as possible,” Dana says. “It was such a fulfilling way to re-enter the art world.” Her passion for painting reignited, Dana has spent the past two years building up a body of work that she could eventually show or sell. But it wasn’t until setting foot in Gallery 2110, an art gallery with studios for 30 artists, that she knew now was time. “I went on the Capital Artists’ Studio Tour and when I walked into Gallery 2110, I just loved it,” Dana recalls. “I loved the vibe. I love talking to people. Fine art embraces all the things I love: travel and great

conversations. So I knew this was the right place. When the owners told me at our very first meeting that a studio had just come open, I thought ‘Do it!’ I know when something’s right.” Now the reinvigorated creative “sneaks over” to her studio when she’s not tending to her advertising clients and attends every Second Saturday reception to talk to her patrons and fellow artists, giving her a whole new perspective on what her childhood art teacher told her early on. “My teacher was feisty woman who instilled a go-for-it attitude in all of her students,” Dana says. “She believed women could do anything they put their minds to.” It looks like Dana believes that, too. Dana’s recent paintings of the south of France, “Le Sud de la France,” will be exhibited from September 10 to Oct. 9 at Red Dot Gallery, 2231 J St., Suite 101. Gallery 2110 is at 2110 K St. Dana will participate in the CAST Studio Tour Sept. 13 and 14. For more information visit, kathydana. com n
