SOLD • “Uplifting Fragrance," Tuscany ©2015 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas
Just sold through the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX. The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple waves vertically to draw your eye up to the stone farmhouse perched on top of one of the distant hills. Wispy clouds mirror similar patterns as the lavender columns and create a harmony between foreground and background, while perspective lines all converge at the summit, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot. I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!
For the month of March, I will be one of the featured artists at the Good Art Company. Several of my new palette knife paintings from our travels not only in Italy, but closer to home, around the state of Texas will be on display. If interested in more information or visiting the artist reception on March 4th, please contact goodartcompany.com/gac/. I hope to see you there!
