JUST SOLD • “What Dreams Are Made Of” ©2017 by Niki Gulley
Four 24″ x 24″ canvases to form a 48″ x 48″ quadriptych • artist-embellished print on canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to feel like a little kid again – laying on the ground and staring up into the treetops without a care in the world. I hope you experience the joy of being surrounded by nature and the beauty in this autumn kaleidoscope of colors.

 

Here is the artist-embellished print on canvas, “What Dreams Are Made Of,” hanging in its new home!
 

Canvas Prints now Available:  Four 24″ x 24″ canvases are stretched on 3/4 inch stretcher bars with the image continuing around the edges to form a 48″ x 48″ quadriptych that does not need to be framed, just like the original . I have also added thick paint in some of the leaves and trunks to add even more texture and making each print one of a kind. Finally, I have coated the canvases with a UV varnish to protect the paintings. The canvases can be hung right up next to each other or spread apart by a few inches to come out to a maximum of 53″ x 53″. I can also make other sizes or stretch “What Dreams Are Made Of” on deep 1 and 1/2 inch stretcher bars for an additional fee. Please contact me at Niki Gulley for more information on the original painting or canvas prints.

I’m excited that this painting was just juried into the Artists of Texas H2O show to be held in Corpus Christi!Gold, white, tangerine – quicksilver Koi slice through silent waters. Playful, darting fish follow each other up through the composition, while cool colors float and ripple across the painting forming tranquil patterns.  A happy threesome glides by, lifting your spirits as you gaze into this vertical panorama while thick strokes of paint created with palette knife add dimension and movement.

New “Oak Alley” Palette Knife Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

February 13th, 2017
“Oak Alley” ©2017 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
I painted this colorful oak lined alleyway a couple of weeks ago on location at the Fort Worth Stock Yards. I was attracted to the contrast of light and shadows and the way the oaks lined up to lead you down this dappled path into the background Spanish archway, which was illuminated in glowing whites and yellows by the sun. The colors were duller than this and I wanted a warmer feeling to the scene since it was a chilly morning, so I enhanced the hues to create an uplifting backdrop full of color and energy. Utilizing thick paint and palette knife, I also created a lot of texture and movement with my strokes to add to the joyful feeling of painting on this beautiful morning.

New “Chit Chat” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

February 1st, 2017
“Chit Chat” ©2017 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ textured oil painting
 
Shimmering in golden light, this backlit grove of aspen trees reaches tall, leaning left and then right towards the sun as it grew. The peeling trunks almost seem to move, even chatting with one another. A few trees weren’t so lucky and lay fallen at their feet, while the whole scene is filled with color, texture and movement to suggest the power of nature and its ability to enhance your spirit.

New “Old Soul” White Rock Lake Live Oak Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

December 30th, 2016
“Old Soul” Winfrey Point, White Rock Lake©2017 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16″ oil painting
 
During the Oil Painters of America convention held last spring, artists from around the country gathered one day at White Rock Lake to capture the beautiful surroundings. I was drawn to this magnificent, massive live oak tree at Winfrey Point. Setting up my easel close to its base so that I could see and capture all of its gnarly trunk, roots and limbs, I kept the background softer to help show off its structure. I hope you, too, can feel its energy, wisdom and strength.

New “Morning Glow” oil painting of White Rock Lake by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley

December 21st, 2016
“Morning Glow, White Rock Lake” ©2016 Niki Gulley
oil on canvas • 20″ x 16″
 
On a peaceful spring morning, I set up my easel at White Rock Lake to capture the sun rising behind this beautiful, tangled Cottonwood tree. I liked how the warm light showed off the tree’s curves and textured bark, and I chose this vertical composition to show off its size and strength. In the distance, the sun glistens along the water’s surface and I hope this scene lifts your spirits for what the day has to bring.

New “Autumn Serenade” Palette Knife Fall Foliage Painting by Niki Gulley

December 14th, 2016
“Autumn Serenade”  ©2016 Niki Gulley
36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen, Oak and the forest of trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

Recently sold! Full of fun and whimsy, I not only wanted to show the personality of this red barn but also make you feel like a kid again, climbing trees, swinging from their branches and returning to a simpler time in your childhood. Hinting that the barn has humanlike features, I feel like it, too, is inviting you to come play inside.
