New “Spring’s Glory,” Texas Hill Country oil painting by Niki Gulley

September 30th, 2016
Spring’s Glory,” Texas Hill Country ©2016 Niki Gulley
 36” x 60” textured oil painting on gallery wrap canvas

“Spring’s Glory” was inspired by a trip to the Texas Hill Country. The spring conditions were perfect, and the bluebonnets were amazing! While we were near Fredericksburg, we took a scenic drive along the Willow City Look and as we approached the top of a hill about half way around, we were greeted by this gorgeous view of the rolling hills and bluebonnets 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, enhancing the kaleidoscope of colors in the sky and along the ground. Arranging clouds, the road and rows of bluebonnets in rhythmic sweeping shapes to create a harmonious landscape that flows with light, texture and color, and suggest a feeling of optimism about what’s to come.

“Blue Valley” New Bluebonnet oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

September 29th, 2016
“Blue Valley” ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 12″ textured oil painting
Just sold through my gallery, the Good Art Company in Fredericksburg, TX! I painted these Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush 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 vertical wildflower series, I’ve framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These Texas wildflowers look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

New Winter Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

September 26th, 2016
 
“Winter Hues” ©2016 Niki Gulley
12″ x 12″ oil on canvas
I painted these winter aspen trees with palette knife and extremely thick paint. I love how the chunky paint adds to the texture of the bark and the movement in the snow and branches. The painting continues around the edges of the wrap around canvas for a sculptural-like frameless piece of art.
These aspens and birches look great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of my other 12×12 trees. Hang them horizontally, vertically, on a diagonal or stacked. If interested in seeing companion pieces, please e-mail Niki Gulley for options.

Soaring High ©2016 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ • Textured mixed media on canvas

I wanted this painting to be filled with uplifting colors and energetic strokes all leading you skyward, to soar amongst the clouds. Aspen trees reach towards the heavens while gentle breezes cause the sky to dance while you lay on the ground gazing in wonderment. Happy hues, whimsical shapes and a feeling of movement, hopefully transport you to a carefree childhood moment where all of your worries drift away and dreams are created.
