New "Old Soul" White Rock Lake Live Oak Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

"Old Soul" Winfrey Point, White Rock Lake©2017 Niki Gulley
12" x 16" oil painting

During the Oil Painters of America convention held last spring, artists from around the country gathered one day at White Rock Lake to capture the beautiful surroundings. I was drawn to this magnificent, massive live oak tree at Winfrey Point. Setting up my easel close to its base so that I could see and capture all of its gnarly trunk, roots and limbs, I kept the background softer to help show off its structure. I hope you, too, can feel its energy, wisdom and strength.
