New "Pops of Sunshine" Sunflower Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Pops of Sunshine" ©2019 Niki Gulley
16" x 20" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, framed in an espresso floater frame

Painted on location, seeing this garden of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I hoped you could experience that joy, too. Created with palette knife and thick oil paint, I wanted “Pops of Sunshine” to leap off the canvas and come to life. Using lots of short diagonal strokes to create movement and add to the upbeat feeling, golden blossoms rise from the tangle of leaves and wildflowers below. Working with complimentary colors also adds to the excitement and energy of the moment.
