New “Counting Time” Contemporary Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Counting Time” ©2021 Niki Gulley
30″ x 40″ textured mixed media painting on 1.5″ wrap around cradled board with the painting continuing around the edges

Capturing the excitement and energy I feel while being immersed in the nature, “Counting Time” is loaded with vibrant autumn colors, extremely thick textured paint, movement and spontaneity. Peeling, knotted aspen trees stretch deeper and deeper into the woods, counting time as their foliage dances in the breeze creating an uptempo rhythm and filling the forest with its gorgeous symphony.

New “A Knot in the Woods II” Abstract Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Knot in the Woods II” ©2021 Niki Gulley

20″ x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
Scrolling bark peels back like white washed parchment revealing secrets in the deeply textured wood below. A painting of grace and beauty, its verticality is offset by diagonal glowing autumn colors. Each stroke defined by thick textured paint and rich colors contrasted against subtle ivories, strike a reverberating chord and create a visual vibration that resonates in an optical song.
