“Golden Moment” pastel by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

September 1st, 2014
“Golden Moment” ©2012 Niki Gulley
12″ x 24″ pastel
I painted this pastel at the Dallas Arboretum last fall to capture the gorgeous fall colors, and the mysterious long shadows cast by the sun as it was nearing sunset. I loved the vivid reds and oranges of the foliage, and the way the sun was causing those colors to glow along with the highlights on the path.

Wells Street Art Festival in downtown Chicago this Weekend

June 8th, 2013
“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.

Fall Foliage Pastel

December 5th, 2012
“Golden Moment” ©2012 Niki Gulley
12″ x 24″ pastel
I painted this pastel at the Dallas Arboretum last fall to capture the gorgeous fall colors, and the mysterious long shadows cast by the sun as it was nearing sunset. I loved the vivid reds and oranges of the foliage, and the way the sun was causing those colors to glow along with the highlights on the path.
This pastel along with several others will be available at our “Adopt – a – Art” party on Dec. 7th and 8th. As some of you may know, we are planning to move to a larger studio space and while we would love to take all of our precious friends with us, we would rather not move everything and start with a clean studio space. Consequently, we are going to do something this year that we have never done before and may never do again, we are going to have an adoption weekend. There will be nominal fees associated with some of these to cover the care and feeding of them over the years and all of our little friends will be available for viewing, ready to go to new homes. We hope that you can make it!

Adopt – a – Art
One time only art sale and auction of Niki Gulley’s pastels/paintings and Scott Williams’ photographs


Fri. Dec. 7th 7pm – 9pm 

Sat. Dec. 8th 1pm – 4pm

“Colorful Transformation” textured birch tree painting by Niki Gulley

May 18th, 2011


“Colorful Transformation” ©2011 Niki Gulley

 

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! 

To see more of Niki Gulley’s landscape paintings, please stop by her booth at the Broad Ripple Art Fair in Indianapolis, IN this weekend – indplsartcenter.org/braf/.

Life’s Journey oil on canvas by Niki Gulley

April 22nd, 2011

“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.
