“Whispers in Time” Aspen Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Whispers in Time” ©2022 Niki Gulley

30” x 30” textured oil painting
 
Colorado’s celebrated quaking aspen trees stand arrow straight in the valleys and 
up and down the hills. 
Slim white trunks sing out against the forest background and each leaf provides
a sparkling symphony of notes whispering through the mountains.
Flames of yellow leaves flicker against autumn’s burning reds 
and the deep, cool blue mountain streaked with late light.
 
This painting captures the breathtaking colors of
Colorado in the fall, the Aspens at their most beautiful, and the peaceful rustling murmur and musical sigh of the fluttering leaves.

Soaring High ©2022 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.

“Heightened Awareness” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

Heightened
Awareness III ©2014 Niki Gulley
48″ x 36″ • Textured mixed media 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.

Autumn Aspen Painting available as Canvas Prints by Niki Gulley

“Emergence” ©2012 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ or 28″ x 40″ Embellished Canvas Print

I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit more so than an exact replica of the forest, so I chose to use warm vivid colors and thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the 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.

Emergence is now available as a stretched canvas print. 
I have added thick paint to the prints so they are loaded with texture. 
They are UV coated and are stretched with the painting continuing around the edges on 3/4″ stretcher bars so that they can be hung as is without a frame, or if you prefer a traditional look, they can be framed also. 
Please e-mail me for frame sample and prices or if you would prefer the print on deeper stretcher bars, e-mail me for a quote. 
20″ x 30″ for $295 • 28″ x 40″ for $495
A close up detail of the added thick paint in the leaves and the trunks.
Print wrapped around 3/4″ stretcher bars.
