New “Life’s Journey” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

May 17th, 2017
“Life’s Journey” ©2017 Niki Gulley
46” x 44” oil on 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.

New “Kid’s Perspective” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

April 12th, 2017
“Kid’s Perspective” ©2017 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 20″ x 30″
In “Kid’s Perspective” I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and soft shades of tangerine contrasted against a blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest and to direct your eye to the focal point. Utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

New “October Transitions II” – Aspen Tree oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

March 30th, 2017
“October Transitions II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ oil on canvas

I love painting aspen trees and I usually work with a more primary color palette, but in this painting, I wanted to convey a quieter, more peaceful mood. Opting for calming grey greens, soft golds and reds with hints of teal, Harmonic Hues reminds me of the serenity I feel while walking through the forest on a cool autumn day, being totally immersed in nature, not a care in the world. I hope you are transported, too!

New “Visions of Blue III” Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

March 24th, 2017
 
“Visions of Blue III,” Texas Hill Country ©2017 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
I painted these Texas Bluebonnets and wildflowers with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. 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 Texas wildflowers look great hung alone or in a grouping with the rest of the “Visions of Blue” series, too!

New “Under the Old Oak Tree” Texas Hill Country Painting by Niki Gulley

March 12th, 2017
“Under the Old Oak Tree,” Texas Hill Country ©2017 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting
 
Inspired by a trip to the hill country, I wanted you to feel the warmth and beauty on this perfect spring day while out for a leisurely drive among the bluebonnets and Texas wildflowers. I was drawn to this stately, gnarly live oak tree perched on a mound of bluebonnets, looking larger than life. The dramatic clouds behind it seemed to all be pointing at it, too, drawing even more attention to its beauty. I wanted to capture that feeling of drama and capture its spirit in my composition. Painted with thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve extreme texture, the resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color, movement and energy, just like the scenery which inspired it.

New “Soaring Dreams II” Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

February 9th, 2017
“Soaring Dreams II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 34″ x 34″
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and reds contrasted against a lavender-blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest. Using diagonal leading lines with the tree trunks and limbs, your eye gazes into the focal point where all of the elements come together. Meanwhile, utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

New “Autumn Flow” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

February 6th, 2017
“Autumn Flow” ©2017 Niki Gulley
36″ x 18″ textured oil paint on canvas

Water pounds its way down the falls: cascading, rushing, charging into the riverbed – flowing over rocks, swiftly moving forward. Untamed, the surge finds its way over, under, around the boulder-strewn river. Tumbling waters drive up mists above the falls and the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below. Meanwhile autumn’s low light casts long lines through the Aspen trees and glowing verge, illuminating the glorious foliage.
