Last Day, Paris Art Trek with Niki Gulley & Scott Williams

Day 7 – Art Trek Paris with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
The last few days of our Art Trek, we checked out of our hotel in Paris and headed to the peaceful countryside, near Giverny. The b&b we stayed at was straight out of a storybook, and the grounds themselves looked like an impressionist painting. We loved the setting so much, we stayed right there and painted outside our rooms the last day.

Bathed in Sunshine – Fresh off the easel!

July 14th, 2010

“Bathed in Sunshine” ©2010 Niki Gulley
Acrylic Painting • 20” x 30” or 20” x 60”

I love it when we are driving leisurely through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! Playing with color and texture, I feel like Bathed in Sunshine radiates with energy and captures the joy you feel on one of the last beautiful days of summer.

You can choose either the left or the right painting to hang alone or display both side by side to form a panorama diptych. Bathed in Sunshine is created with extremely thick paint on gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges to create a 3-dimensional, almost sculptural wall art.

To see these paintings, stop by my booth at Westport, CT’s Fine Art Festival this weekend or e-mail me at to ship.
