“Choices Await” commissioned oil painting

August 12th, 2011

“Choices Await II” ©2011 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 18″ x 48″ textured oil painting
Just delivered – a recently completed commissioned painting of a larger version of one of my earlier works. My collector was drawn to the peaceful water theme and liked the idea behind the two piers. Which path should you take? The scene also reminded her of the lake that she goes canoeing on, and the joy and tranquility this special place brings her.
If you’d like a painting of a specific place or unique memory, contact me at Niki Gulley for more information.

New Textured Waterfall painting at Wells Street Art Show, Chicago

June 6th, 2011

“Rushing Desires” ©2011 Niki Gulley
60” x 36” textured oil on canvas

Charging down its stone cut course, torrents of water rush through grey boulders past green and gold bracken. Headlong and unrestrained the waters crash downstream, while above they splash into the airy distance a glowing, hazy tiara of misty sunlight. Thick brushstrokes of radiant oils define the powerful landscape carrying your eye through a complex composition of dynamic diagonals cleaved with the vertical cascade, caressed with a delicate crossing of gold dusted branches. A painting of power and energy balanced by graceful strokes of beauty, I wanted “Rushing Desires” to be about texture, movement, mystery and the cathartic feeling in nature.

To see Rushing Desires and more of Niki Gulley’s textured oil paintings, visit her booth, #120, at the Wells Street Art Show this weekend in downtown Chicago. chicagoevents.com/event.cfm?eid=141
