Glier is also a wonderful teacher of anatomy and drawing the human figure. In this clip Glier talks about teaching:

Glier enjoys working with mixed media including charcoal and acrylics using non-traditional backgrounds such as fiberglass. Glier began working en plein air in 2009. He has traveled to locations around the globe to paint fantastic landscapes that show the climate differences between Canada, the Virgin Islands, and New York City.

I enjoy Glier’s use of shape to build solid forms on a flat surface. Glier also has a keen sense of design in his landscapes that keep the eyes of the viewer constantly shifting about the picture. His landscapes are a great mix of realism and abstraction.
