New "Sun's Bounty II" Palette Knife Sunflower Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Sun's Bounty" ©2019 Niki Gulley
30" x 48" textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas

I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Set beneath a glowing sky on a beautiful summer evening with the sunflowers in full bloom, you can just make out the stone farmhouse in the distance against a backdrop of purple mountains surrounding the plain. Creating almost a patchwork with the sunflowers and their leaves, unexpected pops of red and purple peek out creating a rhythm and energy to the foreground. Perky, circular faces smile back at you and I hope all of your cares drift away while gazing into this cheerful scene.
