Recent Work by Gail Middlekauff

Imagine Strolling through the quaint streets of "Old Town" in Alexandria, the picturesque neighborhoods of Georgetown, or the historic villages of Harper's Ferry or Williamsburg. Perhaps you have enjoyed viewing the indigenous architecture in the Bahamas, or admired the ambience of European towns, built along winding rivers and guarded by castles. The appreciation of such images has given rise to this artist's special interest in capturing the colors and textures of these scenes in acrylic.

Paintings by the artist have found homes in private collections, and she has fulfilled requests for commissioned pieces, including one for an embassy couple, who, upon returning to New Zealand, wanted to have a reminder of their Chevy Chase residence.

The artist has studied painting throughout her life, including classes at Connecticut College, the University of North Carolina, and with individual artists. With the use of a palette knife, she has developed a unique technique of painting, which has been described as "an almost abstract interpretation of color." (The artist has degrees in English, theology, and law.)
