“Reclining Thoughts” ©2021 Niki Gulley
40″ x 30” textured oil painting on wrap around 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 as the clouds drift by. Choosing warm yellows, reds and greens and utilizing thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

New “Sparking the Imagination” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Sparking the Imagination” ©2021 Niki Gulley 
 36″ x 36″ textured mixed media on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges    

With “Sparking the Imagination,” I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops, mesmerized by the scene overhead. I’ve arranged the trunks in a spiral pattern so that you have a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by woodland, connecting with nature and the heavens above. Flowing in an ascending circular pattern, transitioning from spring, summer, winter, fall and back again to spring, reminds us of the cyclical forces of life and what our place can be within it.

New “Heading to the Mountains” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Heading to the Mountains” ©2021 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting on canvas panel

Painting in the mountains, especially this year was so cathartic and emotional. It was such a joy to be there surrounded by these amazing fall colors, that it would bring me to tears every day. I felt so fortunate to be able to do this when so many people weren’t able to travel, that I poured my heart and soul into every painting. I hope that you can feel the joy that I felt when you see them.

“Autumn Journey” – Colorado Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Autumn Journey” ©2020 Niki Gulley
30” x 20″ textured oil painting


Inspired by a trip to Colorado in the fall, trying to catch the beautiful autumn aspens leaves before they dropped, we just caught the last glimpse of color before an early snowfall hit. The combination of golden leaves set against the vivid blue sky, and the cool snow shadows contrasted against glowing light highlights as the sun cast its warming rays, was a symphony to the eye! I hope you, too, can slow down and enjoy the beautiful scenery on this winding journey.

New “Reaching to Heaven” Fall Aspen Impasto Painting by Niki Gulley

Niki Gulley, Dallas, aspen, contemporary impressionist, tree painting

The white bark of these glorious aspens rising towards the sky, reminds me of the columns holding up the roof of a cathedral. With the electric blue sky combined with the vibrant yellow leaves, this is my idea of the heaven that is nature. As such, I want your eye to move upwards pulling the focus skyward with a sense of wonder and whimsy.

Mounted in 3″ espresso frame • $1,600
