"Autumn Serenade II" by Niki Gulley Wins First Place at Milan Gallery's Discovery Show

"Autumn Serenade II" ©2017 by Niki Gulley
30" x 40" original textured oil painting

Flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. Contrasting short staccato strokes against blended passages with my palette knives, also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

I'm excited that "Autumn Serenade II" has been juried into Milan Gallery's Discovery Show and received first place from the jurors! With that award, comes 6 months of representation at the gallery. If you're in the Fort Worth area, I hope you can check out my latest paintings at the gallery.
