20″ x 30″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Inspired by our travels to Provence, I painted these cheerful sunflowers with extremely thick oil paint and palette knife so that the resulting image leaps off the canvas and is loaded with energy, color and texture.

“Sun Filled Memories” and several of my contemporary impressionistic landscapes are also on display at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX. For more information, please contact

30″ x 48″ • textured oil on cavan

Inspired by our trip to Provence last summer, I was awestruck by these massive fields of sunflowers blooming. Seeing this brilliant carpet of gold, with its sea of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. In person “Sun Drenched II” practically leaps off the canvas with its vibrant yellow petals and extremely thick three-dimensional oil paint.

This painting and more of Niki Gulley’s textured landscape paintings are on exhibit at American Fine Art Gallery in Dallas. See for details.

Bathed in Sunshine – Fresh off the easel!

July 14th, 2010

“Bathed in Sunshine” ©2010 Niki Gulley
Acrylic Painting • 20” x 30” or 20” x 60”

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 Bathed in Sunshine radiates with energy and captures the joy you feel on one of the last beautiful days of summer.

You can choose either the left or the right painting to hang alone or display both side by side to form a panorama diptych. Bathed in Sunshine is created with extremely thick paint on gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges to create a 3-dimensional, almost sculptural wall art.

To see these paintings, stop by my booth at Westport, CT’s Fine Art Festival this weekend or e-mail me at to ship.

“Sunny Thoughts II” ©2009 Niki Gulley 12″ x 12″ oil painting

I had so much fun painting the chunky sunflower oil painting the other day, I had to paint another one with lots of thick gooey oil paint and a palette knife. I’ll be showing this painting and several other new chunky oil paintings this weekend at the Winter Art Mart at the Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas. I hope you can stop by!
