New “Climbing Oaks” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Climbing Oaks” ©2015 Niki Gulley
20” x 16” textured oil painting
I love the twisting, textured limbs of old oak trees, and the way these two branches formed a keyhole view of the forest beyond was fascinating. Arching the branches upward suggests a touch of whimsey like climbing a tree when you’re a kid. Loaded with texture and surprising pops of color, I hope you, too, are transported to an enchanted place filled with hope and wonder.
