Afternoon in August
Gail Gilson Pierce takes inspiration from botanicals, birds, or landscapes. She explores Door County, taking photographs that capture quintessential locations. Back in her studio, she paints those scenes, capturing the magical feel and vibrant light of the area.
This piece is apart of Gail Gilson Pierce's indoor/outdoor painting and has been treated with four coats of spar varnish. The frame is wood primed and painted with a Rustoleum paint made for outdoor furniture. Nothing is completely weather-proof, but this is able to be hung outside.; We recommend hanging them out of direct sunlight and in a place where they won't get absolutely battered by the elements.
Framed: 20'' x 26''
About the Artist
Gail Gilson Pierce
There are two things Gail Gilson Pierce can’t live without… being outdoors (preferably with her dog) and art. Trained professionally as a biologist, Pierce spent the first half of her career as an environmental educator. Working mainly with middle and high school students, her job allowed her to roam the lake country of northern Wisconsin on a daily basis. Now she devotes her professional time to art. Based out of her northern Wisconsin studio, she paints with oils on canvas, or with dye and thread on textiles. She creates impressionistic paintings of the landscape that sustains her. With organic shapes and vibrant colors, her work invites the viewer to “feel” the landscape as it pulses with life.
Quote: “My art is truly a very personal expression of the “sense of place” I feel in the outdoors.”
