Cottonwood Art Festival this weekend

“Bridge to Tomorrow,” White Rock Lake ©2011 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” textured oil on canvas
White Rock Lake sparkles in the evening sunset encompassed by the dark silhouette of the downtown Dallas skyline and the cresting bridge that carries cyclists around the lake's bike trail. Forefront dense shrubs, pampas grasses and trees frame the image and hold it in a mirror reflection of the bridge – an intriguing and complex composition that is designed to move you, the viewer, into the painting and carry your eye around this picturesque view of Dallas's cherished White Rock Lake. Rich with texture, thick palette knife strokes build lights and shadows; selecting saturated colors to suggest hope and optimism about upcoming days and using mysterious darks to define the lush foliage and offset the lowering sun.

To see this painting of downtown Dallas and more of Niki Gulley’s textured palette knife oil paintings in person, please stop by her booth at the Cottonwood Art Festival this weekend.
Saturday May 7 from 9 am to 6 pm and
Sunday May 8 from 9 am to 6 pm.
Richardson, TX, Cottonwood Park is at the corner of Coit and Beltline.
Visit for details.
