Napa Valley painter Gail Chandler is a self-taught artist who launched directly into a successful art career in 2003. At that time she focused on the beauty of the Napa Valley landmarks in watercolor. At the gallery's urging she began painting in oil in 2011 In Chandlersí oils she attempts to trigger a memory, a giggle and maybe even bring out the mischievously naughty side of all of us. Chandler finds he humor in life and translates it remarkably well through her paintings. Chandlerís paintings match her quirky side. One could argue that her missed calling in life could have been stand up comedy. With Chandlerís work, here are things that are implied but not explicit. Chandler is pushing the boundaries of contemporary realism with every stroke of the brush.
