Just Sold – “Interplay” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

June 13th, 2016
“Interplay” ©2016 by Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 48″ original textured oil painting

Flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. Contrasting short staccato strokes against blended passages with my palette knives, also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

New “Colorful Carousel” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

June 3rd, 2016
“Colorful Carousel” ©2016 by Niki Gulley
 36″ x 60″ original textured oil painting

I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit, so I chose to use warm vivid colors contrasted against cool underbrush while utilizing thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the fall foliage in curving sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance on a beautiful fall day.

New “Dreams Ahead” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

September 16th, 2015
“Dreams Ahead” ©2015 by Niki Gulley
 30″ x 40″ original textured oil painting

Enjoying the melodic tinkling of the aspen leaves rustling in the breeze, the trickling sounds of the babbling brook at our backs, and the beauty of fall ablaze with color, I felt invigorated as I began painting this aspen forest. The setting was so peaceful and rejuvenating that I wanted to communicate that joyful feeling of discovery. Filling the canvas with energetic staccato strokes and bold colors, in addition to gently arching the tree trunks reaching towards the sky, add to that uplifting feeling. And then just a sliver of the trail cutting through the forest, suggests the excitement of the journey that is to come.

“October Rhythms” Textured Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley – Just Sold

July 6th, 2015
“October Rhythms” ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! I find being immersed in nature can have such an uplifting effect, and I wanted to share that feeling with you in October Rhythms. I chose pure, intense reds and yellows contrasted against autumn golds and chocolates to create an fall forest that vibrates with color, energy and sound. The repetition in the aspen trunks and foliage patterns, combined with the flickering tones of the breeze rustling the leaves reminded me of a symphony in the forest so I titled this painting October Rhythms.

New “Reaching for the Heavens” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

April 8th, 2015
“Reaching for the Heavens” ©2015 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″” textured oil painting on gallery wrap 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 curiously without a care in the world as the clouds drift by. Choosing playful colors and thick chunky staccato strokes to add to that childlike whimsy. I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

“Reaching for the Heavens” along with several of my new palette knife paintings will be featured in my One Woman Show, hosted at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX.

New “Fall’s Carnival” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

April 6th, 2015
“Fall’s Carnival” ©2015 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

Painted with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives so that this canvas is loaded with texture and bursting with color, flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this landscape to be filled with movement and vivacity, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. Contrasting short staccato strokes against blended passages with my palette knives, also increase that sense of motion. One zig zag passage of crimson foliage creates a focal point in the tangle of leaves and turnks while adding energy to the scene. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.

“Fall’s Carnival” along with several of my new palette knife paintings will be featured in my One Woman Show, hosted at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX.
