Asked several of my friends what to name this painting and several friends told me this painting gives them a peace and calm feeling. It is always great to create a painting that people find a mood while looking at the painting. My goal is always to paint things beautifully.

lioness was done as part of a challenge for Daily Paint-works. I love
how she came out. She is done with oils and on a 8"x 10" canvas panel. I
thought she would look good with a greenish blue background. She is
available for purchase.
Water pounds its way down the falls: cascading, rushing, charging into the riverbed -- flowing over rocks, swiftly moving forward. Untamed, the surge finds its way over, under, around the boulder-strewn river. Tumbling waters drive up mists above the falls, the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below, while autumn colors glow as we peer through the tangle of textured Aspen trees.
If you have any questions about Autumn Cascades or my palette knife Aspen tree paintings, pleasee-mail Niki Gulley.

Enjoying the melodic tinkling of the aspen leaves rustling in the breeze, the trickling sounds of the babbling brook at our backs, and the beauty of fall ablaze with color, I felt invigorated as I began painting this aspen forest. The setting was so peaceful and rejuvenating that I wanted to communicate that joyful feeling of discovery. Filling the canvas with energetic staccato strokes and bold colors, in addition to gently arching the tree trunks reaching towards the sky, add to that uplifting feeling. And then just a sliver of the trail cutting through the forest, suggests the excitement of the journey that is to come.
