on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
You walk down a path sheltered by autumn drenched trees, intrigued by the light flowing through the leaves and branches, casting shadows, colors changing with each gentle breeze, sunlight cascading down your pathway. Peaceful, tranquil this painting flows around the canvas capturing the memory of autumn: lush crisp colors, crunchy leaves and a walk through the woods Walt Whitman would have envied.

“Forest Symphony” ©2021 Niki Gulley
36” x 36″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
Slim white trunks sing out against the forest background and each leaf provides
a sparkling symphony of notes whispering through the landscape.
Flames of yellow leaves flicker against autumn’s burning hues
beckoning you to explore the magical journey ahead.
 
This painting captures the breathtaking fall colors when the aspens are at their most beautiful and you can enjoy the rustling murmur and musical sighs of their fluttering leaves.

“Traversing Splendor” – New textured oil painting by Niki Gulley

“Traversing Splendor” ©2012 Niki Gulley
48″ x 60″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

I wanted you to feel the joy and peacefulness of walking through the forest ablaze with color on a beautiful autumn day. With soft light illuminating the walkway and the distance sparkling in golden light, the only sounds to be heard are the crunching of fallen leaves underfoot and a slight breeze flickering the leaves overhead. What lies ahead? The mysterious glow from beyond beckons you forward.

“Harmonious Hues” series by Niki Gulley
oils on canvas • 12″ x 12″

I am really excited about the new paintings I’ve been creating for the Cottonwood Art Festival. I started playing around with thick oil paint and lots of texture early last spring, and the positive response to this new style has been incredible!

Here are a couple of my new seasonal foliage paintings. I love the peeling, knobby bark of the birch trunks, and I feel like I can really recreate that sense of texture by working with thick oil paint and palette knives. I hope you can stop by the Cottonwood Art Festival in Dallas Oct. 3rd & 4th to view them in person, since it’s hard to see their dimension on the computer screen. Each oil painting is 12″ x 12″ and they look great in pairs or threes. I’d love to hear your feedback!
