Currently, I am playing with extremely thick oil paint, creating three-dimensional canvases that flow with light, energy and color. From capturing the gorgeous colors of autumn to the textures of birch and aspen trunks, to the massive sunflower fields in Provence and Tuscany, to the rocky, mountainous terrain of the Southwest, I can’t wait to share these new paintings with you!
I was honored this year when American Fine Art Gallery named me their featured artist for the Dallas Spring Gallery Walk and am excited about the solo show which The Good Art Company Gallery hosted for me this past April in Fredericksburg, TX.
Additionally, we taught a new Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop in Greece, which turned out fabulous! Painting at the Acropolis and the gorgeous vistas on Santorini were just a few of the highlights, not to mention sampling the fantastic food and wines, stepping back in history to imagine ancient western civilization, and just relaxing with the beautiful Aegean sea as our backdrop.
This fall, we led several Art Treks workshops including returning in September to Tuscany with the option to add another week in Cinque Terre and Lake Como for a two week Italian adventure. Next June, we will be leading another tour in Paris, and adding a new workshop in Provence right afterwards, which is already filling up quickly! For more information on our plein air painting, photography and travel workshops, go to nikigulley.com/artreks or e-mail me at Niki@NikiGulley.com for a free brochure and with any questions. We’d love to have you join us!
