"Sundown Serenade" Sunflower Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley


“Sundown Serenade" ©2021 Niki Gulley
24" x 36" textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Sun sets on the horizon, casting its beautiful bronze glow across wind swept clouds and golden petals. Creating a quilted patchwork with the sunflower blossoms and their fronds, 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 magical moment.
