"As the sun rose above the ridge, the hillside came alive with color and the shadows seemed to dance," Gail Greene says of this peaceful scene. "I created the tree foliage with multiple layers of glaze [oil paint and a clear medium]. I wanted them to appear loose and free." Soft yellow, pink and purple in the sky give way to rich greens and sienna in the landscape. Small painterly brushstrokes add dimension and texture and the sense of movement in the light.
NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida
Gail Greene’s paintings rarely end up the way she started them. After an initial block in, she steps back and studies the canvas. Whether it’s adding a spontaneous waterfall or painting new cliffs, she’s usually tinkering with something. Her intention with art is simple – to make the viewer feel good. When she’s not making art, Gail has her hands in many different pots. She’s a retired realtor, currently owns and operates a pet sitting service, and loves working in the garden in her spare time. The easel, though, is where Gail lets herself get lost.
