“Colorful Transformation” ©2013 Niki Gulley
36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
With “Colorful Transformation,” I wanted to focus on brilliant color and simple shapes to see if I could communicate the excitement I feel when surrounded by nature. Using energetic diagonal strokes and thick, textured paint, I hope you get a sense of the motion in the leaves and the power of nature to invigorate your spirit. I just love how this piece captured that essence!
If you would like to see “Colorful Transformation” and more of my textured oil paintings in person, please stop by my booth at the Wells Street Art Fair in downtown Chicago this weekend.

36″ x 48″ textured oil on canvas
Rather than create an exact replica of the forest, I wanted to focus on brilliant color and simple shapes to see if I could communicate the excitement I feel when surrounded by nature. Using energetic diagonal strokes and thick, textured paint, I hope you get a sense of the motion in the leaves and the power of nature to invigorate your spirit. I just love how this piece captured that essence!

“Life’s Journey” ©2011 Niki Gulley
46” x 44” traditional oil on wrap around canvas
Follow the deep wood’s path and wander under a canopy of sheltering leaves, light shifts through each branch and twig. Long, late rays of sunlight pierce the dreaming autumn forest, as you enter shadows dapple your journey. You are walking down a loamy path, filled with color-drenched leaves that invite you into the purple shadows where you may seek your dreams. This oil painting of a tranquil wood’s trail inspires your journey and your dreams with lush colors and rich images of beauty ahead.
To see “Life’s Journey” and more of my oil paintings, stop by my booth at Cottonwood Art Festival, Saturday May 7 from 9 am to 6 pm and Sunday May 8 from 9 am to 6 pm in Richardson, TX. Cottonwood Park is at the corner of Coit and Beltline. Visit CottonwoodArtFestival.com for details.
