Poppy Fields Oil Painting at Southlake Art in the Square – this weekend

“What Dreams May Come” ©2010 Niki Gulley
Oil on canvas • 36” x 48”

In this painting I wanted to create a dream-like feel using one of my favorite flowers, the poppy, so I chose to paint this landscape at dusk as the sun is starting to set over the distant hills to add to that mood. I love the wildflower masses in the foreground creating waves of color, and the curving shapes adding to the sense of tranquility. I was mesmerized watching the cinematography in the movie “What Dreams May Come” and my painting reminded me a little of those magical graphics, so I decided to title my piece the same.

I’ll be displaying “What Dreams May Come” and several other new paintings at Southlake’s Art in the Square this weekend. I hope you can stop by and visit. For more information, see artinthesquare.com.
