Soft cool colors of purple

Irises are just one of the many flowers found at White Rock Lake in Dallas.  This group with the diagonal line made the piece.  The petals falling right into place as if they were instructed.

“Making Connections” London – 14″ x 18″ – pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

September 22nd, 2014
Making Connections, London – 14″ x 18″ – pastel

England Train Station, the Harry Potter shopping cart porthole.   I like the variety of this scene and the many ways it can be interpreted.  The pastels give it a sense of loneliness or uncertainty.  Possibly a new college grad starting their new career with all of their belongings packed for a train ride.  Or maybe a performer moving on to their next gig.  Whatever “connection” you make with this piece, I hope you like it.

New Lavender Oil Painting from Provence

June 10th, 2013
“Bountiful Aromas” ©2013 Niki Gulley
24” x 24” textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

This lavender scene was inspired by our trip to Provence last year, and our fond memories of driving through the peaceful countryside, exploring quaint villages, and savoring the delicious provencal flavors.  When we came across this lavender field, the violet rows were so vibrant and fragrant, that I just had to paint the gorgeous setting. I was intrigued by how the majestic flowers were planted in such a way so as to lead your eye right to this one lone tree emerging from the purple expanse, and I had fun playing with the complimentary colors of the soil, crops and background to create energy and contrast.

Next summer we will be leading an Art Trek to Provence, so if you’ve always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing during lavender and sunflower season in France, please join us for this amazing trip! Details will be coming soon on nikigulley.com/artreks.
