"Vertical Aromas" ©2016 Niki Gulley
24" x 12" textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas
The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. I wanted to try something different in this painting, arranging the purple waves vertically to draw your eye up to the stone farmhouse in the distance. Meanwhile wispy clouds drift by and perspective lines all converge, leading you to this joyful, peaceful spot. I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!
