"Scarlet Emergence" ©2011 Niki Gulley
36" x 60" oil painting
I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit more so than an exact replica of the forest, so I chose to use warm vivid colors and thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance.
If you'd like to see this aspen painting in person, stop by my booth at "Art in the Square" in Frisco, Texas this weekend. See friscosquare.com/AITS for more details.
