"Symphony in Springtime V" Abstract Wildflower Painting by Niki Gulley


“Symphony in Springtime V" ©2020 Niki Gulley
24" x 24" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

I wanted to show Texas' spring landscape in a completely different way. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the bluebonnets and wildflowers along with their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way. With an aura of mystery, late day light touches the tops of the grasses and hills with glimmers of hope.
