“Luminescent Radiance” textured oil painting of Monet’s Garden by Niki Gulley

Two 48″ x 18″ canvases with one 48″ x 30″ canvas in the middle to form a 48″ x 66″ triptych
Textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

I decided it would be a fun challenge to create an extremely large painting, and I wanted the final piece to be very uplifting, colorful and full of energy. Opting for warm colors and working with extremely thick paint and palette knives, I chose this lily pond reference from our visit to Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, France. The grounds were breathtaking and I could actually see his paintings come to life. I was drawn to the energetic flow and yet calming serenity in this view, and I positioned the water lilies and my paint strokes in a curving pattern to add to that mood. The morning light peeking through the distant foliage added to a sense of mystery and promise that I wanted to capture in paint, and share with you that feeling of hope.

New Monet’s Water Lilies Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

January 3rd, 2014
48″ x 48″ Textured Oil Painting, Monet’s Garden ©2013 Niki Gulley • SOLD
Just Shipped - For this commissioned painting, my collectors fell in love with my water lily paintings, but I didn’t have a size canvas that would work for their living room, so they asked me to create a custom piece that was 48″ x 48″. Using thick textured oil paint and palette knives, this water lily pond inspired from our travels to Monet’s Garden, is filled with color, movement, energy and dimension.

Transformation oil painting

March 9th, 2011

“Transformation” ©2011 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 48″ x 60″ oil painting

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!
