“Flowering Currents” Desert Landscape Painting by Niki Gulley

“Flowering Currents” ©2021 Niki Gulley
24” x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 

On a visit to New Mexico, we were greeted to cheerful wildflowers blossoming, adding pops of joy and sunshine to the desert scenery. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

New Abstract Poppy Field Painting by Niki Gulley

 

 
“Flowering Currents IV” ©2021 Niki Gulley
30” x 40″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
I absolutely love it when I come across a whole field of wildflowers – there is something about the transformation of a single dainty flower into a dense explosion of color that inspires awe and delights your senses. I liked how these rows of poppies and earth beneath them created a gentle harmony, inviting you to wander into the distance, getting lost in the moment. Full of color and hope, may “Flowering Currents” transport you to a happy serene place.
 

I’m excited to have been invited to exhibit amongst the talented artists at Marigold Arts gallery in Santa Fe, NM! “Flowering Currents IV” and several of my Southwest landscapes will be hanging there, so if you are in the area, please stop in and visit or check them out online, http://www.marigoldarts.com.
