New Whimsical Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

"Soaring on a Dream," ©2014 Niki Gulley
18" x 24" textured oil painting 

I wanted this painting to be full of joy and energy, reminiscent of a simpler time. Working with palette knife, I moved thick oil paint around in long sweeping circular strokes to add to that feeling of movement and excitment, while choosing vivid primary colors to communicate a time of youth, innocence and freedom.
