New “Reaching to Heaven II” Fall Aspen Impasto Painting by Niki Gulley


“Reaching to Heaven II” 
20″ x 16″ textured oil painting on canvas
In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. With the electric blue sky combined with the vibrant yellow and red leaves, this is my idea of the heaven that is nature. As such, I want your eye to move upwards pulling the focus skyward with a sense of wonder and whimsy.
