“April’s Bounty” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

May 1st, 2017
“April’s Bounty”  ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Just Sold! Inspired by a trip to the hill country, I wanted you to feel the warmth and beauty on this perfect spring day. Painted with thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve extreme texture, the resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color, movement and energy. Using thick oil paint and palette knives, I arranged the bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush diagnonally to create energy and movement, keeping your eye traveling from blossom to blossom. Choosing soft golds and violets for the background creates contrast against the foreground grasses and adds a warmth to the overall scene so that you feel the joy and serenity of being immersed in the Texas hill country.

Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

March 27th, 2017
“Texas Pride II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ textured oil painting on canvas • SOLD
 
I painted these Texas bluebonnets and with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. In this wildflower series, I’ve painted the scene around the edges of the canvas on 1 and 1/2″ deep stretcher bars so that the painting can be hung without a frame for a contemporary look. Or, I also have a beautiful espresso floater frame where you can still see the painted edges of the canvas if you prefer framed artwork. 

The original oil painting of “Texas Pride II” is sold, but canvas prints are available. Please e-mail Niki@NikiGulley.com for pricing and ordering information.

New “Under the Old Oak Tree” Texas Hill Country Painting by Niki Gulley

March 12th, 2017
“Under the Old Oak Tree,” Texas Hill Country ©2017 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured oil painting
 
Inspired by a trip to the hill country, I wanted you to feel the warmth and beauty on this perfect spring day while out for a leisurely drive among the bluebonnets and Texas wildflowers. I was drawn to this stately, gnarly live oak tree perched on a mound of bluebonnets, looking larger than life. The dramatic clouds behind it seemed to all be pointing at it, too, drawing even more attention to its beauty. I wanted to capture that feeling of drama and capture its spirit in my composition. Painted with thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve extreme texture, the resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color, movement and energy, just like the scenery which inspired it.

New “Witnessing Sunset” Palette Knife Bluebonnet painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

March 8th, 2017
“Witnessing Sunset,” Texas Hill Country  ©2017 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ textured oil painting
 
Inspired by a trip to the Willow City Loop in the Texas hill country, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling landscape and wildflowers in full bloom. Then, to top it off the sun was setting in the distance casting its golden glow and backlighting the wildflowers. I had to capture the magical moment while enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds and rows of bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush in rhythmic waves create a harmonious scene that flows with light, texture and color.

Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

August 17th, 2016
6″ x 8″ Textured oil painting by Niki Gulley
I was asked to create this special bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush oil for a collector in Colorado to coordinate with other paintings she had representing each of her grandchildren and the states they were born. I was flattered to do so! The final painting is filled with color and texture so that the Texas wildflowers leap off the canvas.
