"Coming Together" ©2013 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas • 40" x 30"
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. Choosing calming greens against a lavender-blue peaceful sky and arranging the two main aspens so that they meet in the middle, suggests a feeling of togetherness. While organizing the outlying trees in a circular pattern and using thick, curving, bold orange brushstrokes, creates a joyful, playful mood.
If you're in the Dallas area this weekend and would like to see more of my contemporary landscape paintings and textured palette knife aspen / birch tree paintings, please stop by and see my work at Richardson's Cottonwood Art Festival.
