“Dancing on Water,” Monet’s Gardens, Giverny, France  ©2013 Niki Gulley
36″ x 60″ textured oil painting 
Sunlight sparkles across aqua blue water, diamonds of purple glitter the pond’s surface; water lilies lift their faces toward the sun and gently dance across the water.
Golden sunlight filters through the brambles and ferns, a touch of cardinal red peeks through purple and pink foliage while azure skies reflect in the water.

New Water Lily Painting & Canvas Prints / First Art Show of 2011

February 28th, 2011

“Transcending Radiance” ©2011 Niki Gulley

Three 48″ x 30″ canvases to form a 48″ x 90″ triptych oil painting
I decided it would be a fun challenge to create an extremely large painting this winter, and I wanted the final piece to be very uplifting, colorful and full of energy. Opting for warm colors and working with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives, I chose this water scene for its energetic flow and yet calming serenity at the same time, and positioned the water lilies and my paint strokes in a circular pattern to enliven that mood.

If you’d like to see this water lilies painting in person, stop by my booth at “Art in the Square” in Frisco, Texas this weekend (March 5-6). See for more details.

And, I’ve just released a limited edition stretched canvas print of
“Transcending Radiance” in two sizes:

18″ x 30″ for $295
26″ x 40″ for $595
With only 100 signed and numbered prints in the series, these canvases are sure to go quickly so e-mail me at Niki Gulley if you are interested in purchasing.
