Inspired from a wonderful trip to Provence, I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy.
Set beneath floating clouds and an azure 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.

New Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

July 14th, 2014
“Spring’s Rewards” ©2014 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured mixed media on canvas 

Red headed poppies nod and wave, basking in summer sunshine, nestling amidst green pastures and soon to be harvested crops. It’s Provence: fertile, fruitful and filled with stunning vistas in every direction.
I hope you, too, feel an uplifting sense of peacefulness and the beauty of the countryside looking into Spring’s Rewards.

Poppy Diptych

March 12th, 2012

“Bursting with Color” ©2012 Niki Gulley
Two 24” x 24” textured oil paintings on canvas to form a 24” x 48” diptych

I love it when we are driving leisurely through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! Playing with color and texture, I feel like this poppy painting radiates with energy and captures the joy you feel on one of the first beautiful days of spring. With this series, you can purchase either the left or the right painting to hang alone or display both side by side to form a panorama diptych.

The March edition of American Art Collector magazine mentioned myself and Dallas artist Barbara Mason in their floral section. Picture in the article is “Bursting with Color.”
E-mail Niki Gulley for more information on her textured floral paintings.

Miniature Poppy oil painting

Poppy study II by Niki Gulley
5″ x 7″

I created this second floral study to pair with my other miniature poppy paintings. Using palette knives and extremely thick oil paint to achieve texture and dimension. I love the bright, happy colors! To see these floral studies in person, stop by my booth at Madison, Wisconsin’s Art Fair on the Square this weekend. For more details on the show, see mmoca.org.
