“Visions of Wildflowers” Palette Knife Bluebonnet Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

March 9th, 2018
“Visions of Wildflowers” ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! 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 our 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. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms slightly abstract plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

New “Cloud Gazing” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

February 9th, 2018
Cloud Gazing ©2018 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24” x 24” textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas 
 

Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! Inspirerd by a trip to Italy, my husband wanted to stop and photograph this lone stone building. I was also attracted to its glowing white facade in the dramatic light that often fills Tuscany. The clouds above were so voluminous and massive compared to the small structure below, that the contrast really gives you a sense of the open space and surrounding hillsides. Capturing the drama of the sky and the joy in the poppy-filled hillside with palette knife while leaving my strokes loose and free, all add to the energy of that moment. I hope you, too, can feel the peace and happiness of being surrounded by nature in all of its glory, staring into the clouds while dreaming about what the future holds.

New “Visions of Wildflowers II” Palette Knife Bluebonnet Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

February 2nd, 2018
“Visions of Wildflowers II” ©2018 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
In this Texas wildflower series, I wanted to capture the excitement and energy felt during a beautiful April day when the bluebonnets are painting the horizon in blue. Driving through the hill country in springtime, there is such an amazing explosion of color from the bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush, coreopsis and the plethora of wildflowers, that it fills your heart with joy and awe. Focusing on the rows of color versus a traditional landscape scene, I felt like I could communicate more of the emotion felt being surrounded by all of this Texas beauty.For more information on “Visions of Wildflowers” series, please contact my gallery, the Good Art Company, in Fredericksburg, TX at goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&z.
