“Flowing Radiance,” Monet’s Gardens ©2012 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” textured oil on wrap around canvas
My initial study for a 48″ x 90″ triptych, but I love how this small oil turned out, too! Inspired by Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, France, I wanted to paint a contemporary rendition of his lily pond, which would be flowing with color, light, warmth and energy.
If you’d like more information on this painting, please me at Niki Gulley. Or, if you’d like to create paintings with more freedom and expression, please join me Feb. 18th and 19th for a workshop I’m teaching on “Loosening Up.”
