“Cacophony” Textured Autumn Aspen Painting Niki Gulley

       

“Cacophony” ©2022 Niki Gulley
30” x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 

Enjoying the concert of aspen leaves rustling in the breeze and the beauty of fall ablaze with color, I felt invigorated as I began painting this aspen forest. The setting was so mesmerizing and rejuvenating that I wanted to communicate that joyful feeling of discovery. Filling the canvas with energetic staccato strokes and bold colors, in addition to gently arching the tree trunks reaching towards the sky, all add to that uplifting feeling of being immersed in nature’s symphony.

Enjoying the melodic tinkling of the aspen leaves rustling in the breeze, the trickling sounds of the babbling brook at our side, and the beauty of fall ablaze with color, I felt invigorated as I began painting this aspen forest. The setting was so peaceful and rejuvenating that I wanted to communicate that joyful feeling of discovery.

New “Blazing a Trail” Abstracted Autumn Aspen Painting Niki Gulley

     

“Blazing a Trail” ©2021 Niki Gulley
36” x 18″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
Flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. Contrasting short staccato strokes against blended passages with my palette knives, also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

“Fibonacci’s Dream” Abstract Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

 

“Fibonacci’s Dream” ©2021 Niki Gulley
36” x 36″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
 
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops, mesmerized by the scene overhead. I chose uplifting yellows and golds contrasted against a turquoise blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by to lift your spirits. I’ve arranged the aspens in a spiral pattern so that you have a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest, connecting with nature and the heavens above.
Utilizing thick, curving paint strokes also adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.
