ATHABASCA FALLS, CANADA by Linda Popple

6x6

While in Canada last summer we stopped at Athabasca Falls.  The water is a lovely turquoise.  Wikipedia explains why the water is this color:

A Rock flour, or glacial flour, consists of fine-grained, silt-sized particles of rock, generated by mechanical grinding of bedrock by glacial erosion or by artificial grinding to a similar size. Because the material is very small, it becomes suspended in meltwater making the water appear cloudy, which is sometimes known as glacial milk.

When the sediments enter a river, they turn the river's colour grey, light brown, iridescent blue-green, or milky white. If the river flows into a glacial lake, the lake may appear turquoise in colour as a result. When flows of the flour are extensive, a distinct layer of a different colour flows into the lake and begins to dissipate and settle as the flow extends from the increase in water flow from the glacier during snow melts and heavy rain periods. Examples of this phenomenon may be seen at Lake Tekapo, New Zealand, Lake LouiseMoraine Lake and Peyto Lake in Canada, and Gjende lake in Norway.

New Winter Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley


"Winter Hues" ©2016 Niki Gulley
12" x 12" oil on canvas

I painted these winter aspen trees with palette knife and extremely thick paint. I love how the chunky paint adds to the texture of the bark and the movement in the snow and branches. The painting continues around the edges of the wrap around canvas for a sculptural-like frameless piece of art.

These aspens and birches look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other 12x12 trees. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. If interested in seeing companion pieces, please e-mail Niki Gulley for options.

Fall is coming and the roses bushes are giving me the last of the roses.  We have enjoyed these little gems not only from their beauty and from their fragrance. Thank you God for providing roses.
