Still Waters

December 24th, 2010

Acrylic on Canvas
18" x 36"

This piece is a manifestation of life's "do overs". After priming over a painting I was unhappy with, I discovered a new process that has become the foundation of a new collection of work. The random texture from the previous painting caused me to apply the first layer of paint in a three step process that adds great dimension to the painting. Abstract in nature, I allowed the painting to speak to me as I developed each inch with multiple layers of color. What emerged was a reminder of how the Good Shepherd leads us to still waters of peace, rest, and restoration.

Creating art that invites the viewer to ponder and explore is Deborah Gall's primary goal. A passion for excellence, beauty, and things spiritual is reflected in paintings that also reflect her love of texture and color, light, and mystery. Cohesive in its brilliant hues and high-relief texture, the body of work is diverse in its images and palettes. Described as bold in colour, yet peaceful in emotion, the work embodies the power of divine love as it interprets the vision within Deborah's spirit.

My creative passage to seek "What if" without reliance on rule and boundary offers, at the end of a good day, work that is unusual, exciting, and relevant.
