“Raising Sunshine” ©2014 Niki Gulley
18" x 24” textured oil painting
Full of fun and whimsy, in my next painting from this barn series, I not only wanted to show the personality of this red barn but also make you feel like a kid again, climbing trees, swinging from their branches and returning to a simpler time in your childhood. Hinting that the barn has humanlike features, I feel like it, too, is inviting you to come play inside. Using vivid colors, distorted perspective and energetic thick oil paint strokes, I hope "Raising Sunshine" brings joy to your home and reminds you of the simpler pleasures when you were a kid.
