New “Woodland Drive” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

November 6th, 2015

“Woodland Drive” ©2015 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting

Painted on location with first brush and then palette knife for texture, I wanted to capture the joy I feel when fall arrives. Suddenly, the scenery goes from solid green to bursting with vibrant crimson, tangerine and gold. Keeping this painting loose so that you can see the diagonal strokes and feel the energy of the season, a sun-dappled road beckons you forth, inviting you to explore what’s beyond. I hope you, too, feel the joy and excitement of a crisp fall day!

“Woodland Drive” is available through the Good Art Company gallery, goodartcompany.com/gac/.

New “A Spot in the Woods” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

November 4th, 2015

“A Spot in the Woods” ©2015 Niki Gulley
12″ x 9″ textured oil painting

This summer we visited Colorado to escape our Texas heat and soak in the natural beauty of the mountains. We stayed at this peaceful, tucked away b and b surrounded by a massive aspen grove. I wanted to capture the texture of the trees’ knotted bark and also the peaceful feeling of being immersed in nature. Arching the trunks around the focal point, creates a feeling of protection and also helps frame the subject. Their old red barn sets in the distance, creating contrast against the cool greens and greys surrounding it and addintg an exciting pop of color.

40″ x 30” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the wonderment of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing warm yellows, reds and greens and utilizing thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.”Reclining Thoughts” is available through the Good Art Company gallery, goodartcompany.com/gac/.

October 26th, 2015
“Harmonic Hues” ©2015 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ oil on canvas

I love painting aspen trees and I usually work with a more primary color palette, but in this painting, I wanted to convey a quieter, more peaceful mood. Opting for calming grey greens, soft golds and reds with hints of teal, Harmonic Hues reminds me of the serenity I feel while walking through the forest on a cool autumn day, being totally immersed in nature, not a care in the world. I hope you are transported, too!

New “Song of the Woods” Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

June 24th, 2015
“Song of the Woods”  ©2015 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen and Oak trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, a band of slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

“Song of the Woods” along with a few of my textured oils will be on display at Davis and Company Fine Art Gallery north of Houston, TX. If you’d like more details, please follow the link below.
