"Colorful Carousel" ©2015 by Niki Gulley
36" x 60" original textured oil paintingI wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit, so I chose to use warm vivid colors contrasted against cool underbrush while utilizing thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the fall foliage in curving sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance on a beautiful fall day.
To see my work in person, I'll be exhibiting at Autumn and Art in Witchita, KS this weekend.
