“Woodland Adventure” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

 

“Woodland Adventure” ©2022 Niki Gulley

 18″ x 24″” textured oil painting on board

 
I find being immersed in nature can have such an uplifting effect, and I wanted to share that feeling with you in Woodland Adventure. I chose pure, intense reds and yellows contrasted against autumn greens to create a fall forest that vibrates with color and energy.  I placed the vivid foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance on a beautiful fall day.

New “Looking Skyward” Uplifting Treetop Painting by Niki Gulley

“Looking Skyward” ©2021 Niki Gulley

30″ x 40″” textured mixed media on canvas

 

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment. Choosing electric yellows and reds and flinging paint in multiple swirling layers add to that playful, childlike whimsy. I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place!

Heightened Awareness III – New aspen painting

Heightened
Awareness III ©2012 Niki Gulley
48″ x 36″ • Textured painting on canvas

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. I chose vibrant, cheerful yellows contrasted against a violet blue sky filled with big, puffy clouds. And, by arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery are enhanced.

“Opposites Attract” Two Woman Show w/ Gulley & Padgett

“Passionate Embrace” ©2012 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting • 36″ x 36″
I wanted this birch painting to be very colorful and whimsical, like through the eyes of a child looking into the treetops with fascination. I also like how sometimes the difference between realism and abstraction isn’t that great at all, and in this case, by just inverting and adding tree trunks to Elizabeth Padgett’s abstract painting, the result can become a realistic scene in “Passionate Embrace.” 

Please join Dallas artists, Niki Gulley and Elizabeth Padgett, for this Two Woman Show “Opposites Attract,” featuring their paintings from two different perspectives – realism and abstraction. Artist Reception is Sun. Feb. 5 from 2 to 4 pm at the Jaycee Center for the Arts,
1975 Puritan Dr. between Story Rd. and MacArthur in Irving, TX. Exhibit runs Jan. 29 – Feb 23, 2012.

If you have any questions, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

Miniature Birch Tree oil paintings

7″ x 5″ Birch Trees – New oil paintings by Niki Gulley

I painted these miniature birches with palette knife and extremely thick oil paint so that the resulting paintings are filled with color, texture and movement. These miniature oils look great in pairs and threes, and the wide black frame really draws your eye into the artwork and sets each one apart. If you’d like additional information or would like to purchase any combination of my birch tree paintings above, e-mail Niki Gulley.
