New “Enduring Spirit” Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Enduring Spirit” ©2015 Niki Gulley
20″ x 16” textured oil on canvas

Standing tall and proud, this old soul sinks its gnarly roots into the cliff below, persistent and hopeful. I wanted you to get the feeling of staring up in wonderment like when you were a kid discovering things for the first time – noticing the unusual beauty and complexity of its infrastructure. Both grounded and reaching for the heavens, this organic skyscraper connects us to the mysteries of nature while encouraging childhood dreams.
