Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley Painting Aspen Trees in Santa Fe, NM

12" x 24" textured mixed media painting on canvas

When we visited Santa Fe this month, the temperature started rising as the weekend went on, so we headed up into the mountains for cooler breezes to paint the beautiful aspen trees. I was attracted to the white trunks with their unique peeling bark and dark protruding knots. I liked how the dramatic dappled light came through the trees and illuminated the grasses and foliage causing the landscape to glow. Becoming totally lost in the moment, I set out to capture the peacefulness and contentment I felt that day.

Or, e-mail Niki Gulley for more information on her contemporary landscape paintings.
