65:51 Few artists bring more joy and love of life to their work than Diana Bryer. A New Mexican artist known internationally for her paintings of women and the natural world, she bases her vividly colorful imagery on the celebration of life and our relationship to each other, the animal kingdom, the changing seasons, and our Mother Earth. We talked with her about the experience and feelings behind her work.

Diana has lived with her family on a small farm in northern New Mexico since 1977. Her original paintings are in many public and private collections. Each of her paintings is a prayer for peace, for the environment, and for balance within the heart of male and female.
