Willow City Loop ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
I painted this piece on location along the Willow City Loop in Fredericksburg, TX. It was too early for bluebonnets, so I was searching for a beautiful scene that included some bright colors to break up all of the green in the landscape. These interesting red rocks were calling my name! Combine their interesting hues and shapes along with the dreamy morning light, and I thought this composition would make a perfect painting. A sliver of the road on the left reminds you to slow down and enjoy the journey, too.
