Sophisticated abstracted landscape in warm bronze, cream and brown, visual artist, Gail Chase Bien creates water and landscape as a signifier for the human spirit. Working layered and lush over long periods of time, the artist is conscious of a thin veneer of self, and viewing the work is an open door to our own parallel journey.

Painted with thin transparent layers of oil over canvas on wooden panel, over an extended period of time, the artwork glistens and glows. It is a slow painting, both in its making and in the enjoyment of it. Oil in canvas over panel. Ideally hangs unframed, as the edges of the canvas are as beautiful as its surface. A glorious work of art that merged realism with abstraction, and reflects nature with harmony and serenity.
