Awareness III ©2014 Niki Gulley
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. I chose vibrant, cheerful yellows contrasted against a violet blue sky filled with big, puffy clouds. And, by arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery are enhanced.
If you’re in the Madison, WI area this coming weekend and you’d like to see Heightened Awareness and more of my palette knife paintings in person, please stop by my booth at Art Fair on the Square.
