“Spring Forth III,” Texas Hill Country ©2015 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of the berms in the Texas Hill Country. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature, Spring Forth s is loaded with texture, color and movement. Repeating patterns, shapes and hues unite foreground and background while arranging the bluebonnets and distant clouds vertically are designed to lift your spirits and add joy to your home.

Just Sold! “Spring’s Majesty,” Texas Hill Country – Bluebonnet painting by Niki Gulley

June 16th, 2014
“Spring’s Majesty, Texas Hill Country” ©2014 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 18″ x 36″ textured painting
“Spring’s Majesty” was inspired by a trip to the Texas Hill Country when the bluebonnets were in full splendor. While we were near Fredericksburg, we took a scenic drive along the Willow City Look and as we approached the top of a hill about half way around, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling hills colored with bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush in full bloom. Then, to top it off the sun was setting in the distance casting its golden glow and backlighting the wildflowers. I had to capture the magical moment, enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds, the road and rows of bluebonnets in rhythmic sweeping shapes, create a harmonious landscape that flows with light, texture and color, and suggest a feeling of optimism about what’s to come.

“Spring’s Majesty” was available through the Good Art Company gallery, goodartcompany.com/gac/.

Niki Gulley at Cottonwood Art Festival in Richardson, TX this Weekend

May 2nd, 2014
“Blue Descent,” Texas Hill Country ©2014 Niki Gulley
24″ x 36″ textured oil painting

Inspired by a trip to the Texas hill country, I wanted you feel the warmth and beauty as sun sets over this carpet of bluebonnets and Texas wildflowers. Touched with a hint of mystery from the long shadows being cast and a sense of romanticism from the time of day and the two oaks reaching for one another, this piece is loaded with pigment and thick oil paint. In person, the painting leaps off the canvas and the colors almost dance from all of the texture and energy!
