New "A Knot in the Woods II" Abstract Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley


"Knot in the Woods II" ©2021 Niki Gulley
20" x 30" textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5" wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

Scrolling bark peels back like white washed parchment revealing secrets in the deeply textured wood below. A painting of grace and beauty, its verticality is offset by diagonal glowing autumn colors. Each stroke defined by thick textured paint and rich colors contrasted against subtle ivories, strike a reverberating chord and create a visual vibration that resonates in an optical song.
