Inspired by this gorgeous aspen grove, I wanted to capture the magical morning light casting its warm glow on the forest. Peaceful and mysterious, the sun’s rays peek through the knotted trunks causing the landscape to dance with light and awaken with autumn’s kaleidoscope of colors. Loaded with texture and layers and layers of paint, the forest shimmers with hope and discovery for the new day.

“Autumn Serenade”  ©2021 Niki Gulley

SOLD • 36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold! Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen, Oak and the forest of trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

New Autumn Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

         

“Painted Forest” ©2021 Niki Gulley
18″ x 24″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
I loved this brilliant aspen forest with its bright white aspen trunks slicing through all of the vibrant red and yellow foliage. The patterns of the trees created a sort of rhythm and I focused on the placement of the ivory sentinels, the diagonal purple shadows that they cast and the rustling of the leaves to add to that musical feeling. I hope you, too, can sense the energy and joy of being surrounded by nature as autumn is in full swing.

New “Three’s Company” Aspen Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

    

“Three’s Company” ©2021 Niki Gulley

20″ x 16″ textured oil painting on canvas panel

 
This summer we visited Santa Fe and to escape the heat we ventured up the Santo de Cristo mountains to cool down amongst the beautiful, refreshing aspen trees. In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. Choosing calming greens against a lavender-blue peaceful sky and arranging the aspens so that they meet in the middle, suggests a feeling of togetherness. While organizing the outlying trees and mesmerizing clouds in a circular pattern and using thick, curving brushstrokes, creates a joyful, playful mood.

Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley Painting Aspen Trees in Santa Fe, NM

12″ x 24″ textured mixed media painting on canvas
 
When we visited Santa Fe this month, the temperature started rising as the weekend went on, so we headed up into the mountains for cooler breezes to paint the beautiful aspen trees. I was attracted to the white trunks with their unique peeling bark and dark protruding knots. I liked how the dramatic dappled light came through the trees and illuminated the grasses and foliage causing the landscape to glow. Becoming totally lost in the moment, I set out to capture the peacefulness and contentment I felt that day.
