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


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

I am walking the line with one foot in the realm of abstraction, with just a hint of realism. I built up the composition by using multiple layers with a palette knife and some glazes. I have also thrown in a few pops of unexpected color to give the piece an extra element of movement.
