New Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

May 27th, 2016

“Intertwining Beauty” ©2016 Niki Gulley
36″ x 60″ textured oil on canvas


Intertwining Beauty was inspired by a recent trip to the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The aspen forest was so dense and beautiful. I loved the pops of vibrant fall colors peeking through the tall, tangled, web of white knobby trunks. Ruby reds grab your attention while staccato strokes of emerald, amethyst and topaz lead your eye around the canvas. I hope you can feel the energy found in nature and its power to invigorate your spirit.

I painted these aspen trees 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.

Four 36″ x 36″ canvases to form a 72″ x 72″ quadriptych • textured oil painting

New Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

May 4th, 2016
“Carpet of Crimson II” ©2016 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting

I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy. Set beneath a vibrant blue sky on a beautiful day in springtime with the poppies and wildflowers in full bloom, I hope all of your cares drift away while gazing into this cheerful scene.

In this vertical wildflower series, I’ve framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These poppies look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

New “Marching into Autumn” Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

April 4th, 2016

“Marching into Autumn” ©2016 Niki Gulley
10″ x 20″ textured oil on canvas

I painted this colorful autumn scene near my home when the fall foliage was first starting to appear. I loved the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows of the cypress contrasted against the multitude of greens surrounding it. The patterns of the shadows underneath the trees created a sort of rhythm and I played up the angles of the trees and strokes to add to that feeling of a driving beat. I hope you, too, can feel the energy and joy of being surrounded by nature as autumn approaches.

If interested in more information on pricing and purchasing this palette knife fall scene, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

New “Texas Roots” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley

April 1st, 2016
“Texas Roots” ©2015 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20” textured oil on canvas

Painted on location, I was drawn to this magnificent Magnolia tree with its massive tangle of gnarly roots. Gripping the water’s edge, it anchors the foreground and leads you down the meandering creek where morning light shimmers across its surface. Adding unexpected pops of color, I wanted this painting to be full of joy while giving you a sense of peace in this protected oasis.
