Oil painting, "The New Realm", an original by Christine Hales
48 x 60" oil on canvas created in 2014. It is a beautiful mystical landscape that is evocative of the sublime.
This painting is part of the "Inscape" series of paintings undertaken by Simoneau-Hales during the winter of 2014. Drawing inspiration from the natural, wintry landscape, the mystical nature of the painting suggests both an inner and an outer reality that is both personal and universal.
"The painting evokes a sense of the familiar initially. Physical and emotional transformations, however, manifest themselves in these aboreal portraits". Wendy McDaris, McDaris Fine Arts
