Hello Flickr friends,
I am Gail k Piland
I taught art for 33 years and was an artist myself showing my work about once a year at what ever gallery I was working out of. I did drawings and watercolors. Usually I ran after school art classes.

My subject matter is an expression of the things I believe in. Like simplicity, economy, peace, love, compassion, and beauty. I am a long time mediator so Buddhist principles are often expressed visually. I have always had a love of the egg shape and the circle so that is another theme that is just a part of the way I see the world. As an art teacher it has been my privilege to help others express their inner vision. Now retired I can express my own.

I use a couple of cameras, Photoshop Corel X3 and Incendia for the fractals.
All my work is from my own photos, fractals and textures.
I am Thankful for the support and encouragement of Flickr friends.

Thank you so much Gail for spending all this time to create this set of new and spectacular artworks.

Your background serves you well. I always feel there is so much more then what I initially see, giving me moods of deep complexity. Your blending and choice of colors is always just right, often soothing, yet stirs as well.

You are successful in bringing us the feelings you want. You are a true talent and I am proud to have you here☺

Gail Piland is one of the great digital artists on Flickr. Her work is characterized by its variety in style and subtle use of color and design. Her art characteristically conveys an emotion or feeling that is important to her and which she shares wtih her viewers through her art. These feelings range from the personal to the social. What I like most in her work is that she follows her own path--she does not try to be "cutting-edge" or fashionable. Her art is her own, as all good art should be. Thank you, Gail, for sharing your art with us.

You have been an inspiration to me. I really need to make some more time to be creative and on Flickr, but for now, I'm just popping in to compliment you on your work.
Have a wonderful week!

This is a nice format to get to know a bit about you Gail. When you leave a comment I shall give it a great deal of credit knowing it was written by someone with knowledge in the subject of art. Looking forward to playing with you in the future.

Just when I start to think that maybe I know what I'm doing I take a look at one of your creations and I'm humbled. They are truly awesome and so full of life, the details amazing and intricate. Yet for all your talent you still take time to make nice comments on my feeble efforts. Thank you. It has been most encouraging.

Just wanted to toss my two cents in. Each of the folks who have been featured here are creating amazing art. Gail, your work shows a sense of identity while maintaining a level of variety that is difficult to pull off. I am drawn to the circle as well, so your work freequently catches my eye, before I realize again that it's one of your pieces. Thanks for your inspiration and for your feeedback on my work as well.
Amazing artworks!!! Captivating! Congratulations!

What would we do without Flickr friends and encouragement?
You gallery is stunning, just like all your works we can see on FLICKR.
