"Reaching for the Heavens II" ©2015 Niki Gulley
40" x 30" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing playful colors and thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.
If you're in the DFW area this weekend and you'd like to see more of my textured landscape oil paintings, please stop by my display at the Dallas Arboretum's Artscape.
