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.

Just shipped! I was commissioned to paint this cheerful sunflower painting for a family in central Texas. Huge sunflowers fill the fields, bright, sunny and cheerful. Warm golden petals glow above purple shadows and shimmer before violet hills, just as the sun begins to set filling the sky with radiant gold. Bold strokes capture these sunflowers in thick impasto colors that vibrate across the canvas, all designed to add joy and color to their home.

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.

New “Looking Up II” Aspen Tree painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

January 20th, 2017
“Looking Up II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil on canvas
 
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. I chose vibrant, cheerful yellows and golds contrasted against a blue sky with the clouds drifting so that as you gaze overhead, you get the feeling of not having a care in the world. One large trunk in the foreground guides you and gives you a sense of size and perspective, while leading your eye upward. Arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, all add to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

New “Autumn Cascades” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

January 16th, 2017
“Autumn Cascades” ©2017 Niki Gulley
12” x 24” textured oil 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, the rhythmic sounds create a soothing harmony below, while autumn colors glow as we peer through the tangle of textured Aspen trees.
