Artist
Gail Greene 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.

    Artist Statement

    My paintings incorporate a blend of Tonalism and Impressionism and reflect my mood and emotions. I gain my inspiration from nature. However, my work is never a duplicate of what I visually see, but rather an interpretation based on a sensation, idea, or impression of a particular location or photograph.

    I mostly paint rural scenes -- nature that we have not yet destroyed. I want my work to convey a message of peace and harmony yet contain energy and movement.

    My father, who painted as a hobby, introduced me to oil paint at the age of eleven. I have worked in watercolor and acrylic, but prefer oil because I find it less restrictive, allowing me to express myself more freely.

    I am a retired Realtor with college degrees in English Education and English Literature. I currently own and operate a pet sitting service with the help of my son, which gives me ample time to paint. I can't envision my life without painting. At my easel, I'm lost in my work. It's exciting yet relaxing. And energizing but calming. The world of art truly unlocks my imagination.

    I apologize for not responding to your post earlier. I am in the process of moving and our scheduled closing date moved up by two weeks and as left me scrambling to get all packing done. Thank you so much for your comments. I do indeed paint in a tonalism style. I'm always drawn to that style anytime I visit a museum or gallery.

    Received your painting "A Peaceful Moment". It is beautiful--very serene. Is this a tonalism style.? I love it.

    Thank you so much for your comments. I hope the painting brings you enjoyment and pleasure. I love the challenge of painting night scenes; it's all about the light.

    Beautiful painting! The pictures gave a great representation of what the piece actually looks like. Fast shipping, everything delivered as promised.

    Thank you so much Linda. The painting, Between the Trees, is my impression of my grandmother's old house located in the foothills of the Smokey Mountains. I have such wonderful memories of my grandmother and her old homestead. Summer Breeze is based on some photographs I took during a trip to the New England Coast. Again, thank you so much for your comments. Gail

    Thank you so much, Mark. Both paintings that you purchased were inspired by my childhood memories. As a little girl, I always loved winter. "Warm Winter Melody" is one of my personal favorites because it reminds me of the wonderful times I spent with my father enjoying the snow. I hope they bring you much enjoyment and pleasure too.
