"Spring Forth," Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
24" x 24"" textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas
I wanted this Texas wildflower painting to be filled with color and joy! Using thick oil paint and palette knives, I arranged the bluebonnets and winecups diagnonally to create an energy and movement, keeping your eye traveling from blossom to blossom. Choosing a vivid gold background to add warmth and contrast to the scene, also illumintes the petals and grasses from behind causing them to glow. Hung alone or with Spring Forth II, these Texas wildflowers are sure to lift your spirits and brighten up your home.
