“Bend Ahead” – New Colorado Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

July 6th, 2016
“Bend Ahead” ©2016 Niki Gulley
24” x 18″ textured oil painting

Inspired by a trip to Colorado in the fall, trying to catch the beautiful autumn aspens leaves before they dropped, we just caught the last glimpse of color before an early snowfall hit. The combination of golden leaves set against the vivid blue sky, and the cool snow shadows contrasted against glowing light highlights as the sun cast its warming rays, was a symphony to the eye! I hope you, too, can slow down and enjoy the beautiful scenery on this winding journey.

Just Sold – “Golden Aura II” Palette Knife Birch Painting by Niki Gulley

August 21st, 2015
“Golden Aura II” ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Just Sold! Painted with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives so that this canvas is loaded with texture and bursting with color, flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze. I wanted this scene to be filled with movement and energy, so I incorporated a lot of diagonal and curving shapes in the design to suggest that feeling. While combining short staccato strokes along with long sweeping passes with my palette knives also increase that sense of motion. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of walking through the woods on a beautiful fall day, letting your cares slip away and your spirit being invigorated.
