New “Creating Memories” Palette Knife Oil Painting of Venice, Italy by Niki Gulley

April 18th, 2014

“Creating Memories,” Venice ©2014 Niki Gulley
24″ x 36″ • textured oil painting
Inspired from our very first trip to Italy, I fell in love with everything about Venice. The city feels preserved in time with all transportation happening on water versus roads. The architecture, art, history, and people are all fascinating, the food and wine delicious, and it was such a romantic place to visit. So in this painting, I captured a lone gondola to convey that feeling of lazily drifting along with your loved one down this brick canal filled with history and future memories.

If you’d like to join us in Venice for our next Art Trek during Carnival in February 2015, please let me know. For more details, e-mail Niki Gulley or go to nikigulley.com/artreks.

New “October Reflections” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

April 16th, 2014
“October Reflections” ©2014 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

Living in Dallas we are surrounded by concrete, but I have a couple of favorite spots that I go to when I want to be immersed in nature. This pond is always filled with lily pads that I enjoy painting in the spring, but I wanted to paint them in the autumn this time surrounded by the beautiful fall colors. I loved the contrast of the bright azure sky being reflected an inky blue in the water against the fiery reds in the foliage. Arranging the composition in a circular pattern to suggest harmony and tranquility, I hope you feel energized and rejuvenated gazing upon this peaceful oasis.

Palette Knife Red Roses oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

February 12th, 2014
12″ x 12″ Red Roses by Niki Gulley
 textured oil painting on canvas 

I painted these roses from the still life with extremely thick paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I’ve painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. 

This floral looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other contemporary flower paintings. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked.
