"Golden Birch" Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Golden Birch" ©2020 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12" x 9" textured oil painting on canvas panel, framed in 3" espresso

Just Sold! During our New England Fall Foliage Art Trek that my husband and I led, we decided to paint right at our b and b because the grounds were so beautiful. Meanwhile the photographers and tourists, visited the nearby towns to photograph covered bridges, wooden barns and the gorgeous fall foliage. I decided to paint this regal birch tree next to our inn. I liked how it was perched on top if this hill, extending towards the sky. The vibrant yellows and orange leaves vibrated with energy against the clear blue sky, and I wanted to capture that feeling on my canvas. What a great way to spend the day!
