“Sun Salutations V” ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12″ x 12″ textured oil on canvas
 
Just Sold!  I painted these sunflowers with extremely thick paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I’ve painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look.

New “Kid’s Perspective” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

November 11th, 2016
“Kid’s Perspective” ©2016 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 20″ x 30″
In “Kid’s Perspective” I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and soft shades of tangerine contrasted against a 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 and to direct your eye to the focal point. Utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.For information on “Kid’s Perspective” or more of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings, please see my new works at the Good Art Company Gallery, goodartcompany.com/gac/

Just Sold – Ireland palette knife oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

October 28th, 2015
“Ring of Kerry,” Ireland ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 12″ x 24″ oil painting
This painting is inspired from our trip to the UK a couple of years ago. Unfortunately it rained non-stop for 27 of our 30 days abroad – and that was their “dry” season! We finally got a moment of reprieve on our drive around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland, when we came across this beautiful vantage point. The drizzle eased up for a few minutes and we could enjoy this panoramic view of the bay. I loved the multi-colored hydrangeas in the foreground adding a punch of color to all of the greens and grays. The sun breaking through the cloud cover added a touch of dramatic lighting to make everything come to life and sparkle.

Just Sold – “Cascading Rhythms” Palette Knife Waterfall Painting by Niki Gulley

October 2nd, 2015

“Cascading Rhythms” ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 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. Autumn’s low light casts long lines through the Aspen trees and glowing verge.

Just Sold – “Scenic Route” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley

September 28th, 2015
“Scenic Route” ©2015 Niki Gulley
SOLD • Textured Oil Painting on wrap around canvas • 20” x 60”

My husband and I love exploring the back roads whenever we’re en route somewhere. We always discover such interesting places, and the scenery is so much more picturesque than along the highway. It’s fun to slow down and enjoy the journey with no agenda, which is what I had in mind when I painted “Scenic Route,” a beautiful autumn drive through the winding fall foliage.

Last Day, Greece Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams

July 27th, 2015
Last Day, Greece Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
7″ x 5″ oil painting by Niki Gulley
On the last day of our Plein Air Painting and Photography Workshop in Greece, some folks shopped, some relaxed by the pool, others continued photographing. I couldn’t miss one last opportunity to paint our gorgeous Santorini view from our hotel balcony. Everyone had a lovely, rejuvenating afternoon!
Later that day we all gathered to share what we had painted and photographed during the trip, and sample some of the local wines and cheeses while we discussed the art. To cap off the evening, we treated ourselves to a delicious seafood dinner with another gorgeous view of the ocean, catching up with new friends and savoring our last night. A perfect ending to a perfect trip!
Dinner with an amazing view on our last night.
Next summer we will be leading an Art Trek to Spain and the following year we will be headed to Tuscany, England and Ireland, so if you’ve always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing in Europe, please join us for one of these amazing trip! Details will be coming soon on nikigulley.com/artreks.
