12″ x 16″ textured oil painting • Glenrose, TX 
 
 
Painted on location in Glen Rose, Texas with the company of my Outdoor Painters Society, I chose to paint the oldest house in town. It was so full of character and charm and I loved the big huge front porch and white-washed picket fence. The pergola welcomes you to step right in and relax on a rocking chair, visiting with neighbors and loved ones. Dramatic lighting and shadows add to the warmth of the moment.

“Going to Class” from Oxford by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Going to Class” ©2022 Niki Gulley 
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
 
 
Inspired from a visit to Oxford, England, I loved the feel and energy of the old college town. We stopped in our tracks one day as we were passing in front of this Ivy covered wall, almost engulfing the massive hand-carved wooden door. Golden light was raking across the scene, beckoning you to take a look and go inside. The fact that the bike was parked right there, made it the perfect photo opp and later in the studio, the perfect painting subject.

Winter Wonderland Commission by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Cookie’s Winter Garden” ©2022 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 12″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

Just Shipped! This has been a busy year for commissions! Next, I was asked to create two special paintings for some collectors of mine, whom we have become really close to over the years. They have accompanied us on an Art Trek and have graciously invited us to stay with them in Mexico and the United States since that fun-filled trip. So, I was truly honored and flattered that they asked me to paint Cookie’s garden in full bloom during the summer and also frosted with snow in the winter.

Trying to take fairly horizontal compositions and turn them into narrow vertical paintings made for a fun, challenging project! While, making sure the garden was filled with a beautiful dusting of snow so that every branch was iced and including personal details like the angel statue and the Christmas wreath on the red door, I wanted their garden and walkway to welcome you into their lovely home.

Abstract Poppy Field Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Blossoming Dreams” ©2022 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
In this painting I wanted to create a dream-like feel using one of my favorite flowers, the poppy. There is something awe-inspiring about the transformation of a single dainty flower into a dense explosion of vibrant, energetic crimson that delights your senses and lifts your spirits. Arranging the wildflower masses in the foreground to create waves of color and repeating those curving shapes throughout the landscape add to a sense of joyful harmony and tranquility.

“Blossoming Dreams II” Abstract Bluebonnet Painting by Niki Gulley

      

 
“Blossoming Dreams II” ©2022 Niki Gulley
24″ x 36″ textured mixed media painting on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 

 I wanted to show Texas’ spring landscape in a completely different way. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the bluebonnets and wildflowers along with their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way. With an aura of mystery, late day light touches the tops of the grasses and hills with glimmers of hope.

36″ x 36″ textured mixed media painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
I wanted to show Texas’ spring landscape in a completely different way. With an aura of mystery and the promise of what tomorrow holds, late day light sparkles over the horizon casting its warm glow kissing everything it touches with glimmers of hope. The vague suggestion of bluebonnets and colorful wildflowers peek through the dancing golden tangle, leaving the landscape loose and free so that your imagination can tell its story. May you relish the joy in the beauty of nature, bathing in the moment and looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.

20″ x 24″ textured mixed media painting on canvas
 
 

I painted “Spring Forward” while visiting the Texas Hill Country. The explosion of color along roadsides was incredible! This morning the sun kept peeking in and out of the clouds, creating a soft glow to everything it touched. I wanted to capture that magical light illuminating your journey lined by bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush. I hope you, too, can feel the excitement of springtime with the wildflowers abloom!

Hill Country Bluebonnet Commissioned Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

 

SOLD • 24″ x 36″ textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

 

Just Shipped! This year my collectors reached out to me to create two special custom pieces for their new home in Colorado. I wish it had been under happier circumstances, though. You see they were one of the unfortunate families devastated by last year’s Colorado wildfires and everything they owned was burned to the ground. My heart broke when they told me their story.

But, I was so honored when they informed me that I was the first artist they contacted to replace their former art collection. And, on top of that I was to go in the place of a William Slaughter painting that they had owned for 40 years! Large shoes to fill, but I was excited to create something uplifting to bring back fond memories for them. Set amongst the rolling landscape of the Texas Hill Country, I wanted them to feel the warmth and beauty on this perfect spring day while out for a leisurely drive among the cheerful bluebonnets and Texas wildflowers.
