After an exploration of geometric morphological forms—the square, the rectangle, the circle, arrays of stripes, lines, and dots—time comes to bring the elements together.  Abstract forms and representations of the Circle & Line series have led to easily recognizable landscapes. Thus, the artist returns to the structural forms of her youth but with the eyes and techniques of maturity.  Solids, intense colors, and geometry, the Bibel hallmark, persists.

In this transitional stage especially, the art may be seen more fundamentally as orderly patterns of variously colored areas. Our consciousness and learning suggest familiar objects. Finally, this is in essence Fauvist architecture, with a touch of André Derain.

This morphological branch eventually extended into further evolved patterns; the branching stream has become a river.
