Winter Aspen Tree Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Climbing Trees” ©2017 Niki Gulley
40” x 30” oil on canvas
 
Growing up in the midwest, I loved the first snowfall of the year when everything would get a beautiful dusting of pristine white powder, including even the tiniest of branches in the treetops above. If you caught that moment early enough in the morning before anything had disturbed the intricate frosted web, it was just magical. Then the sun would start rising and peeking through the limbs, and everything would sparkle like diamonds. In Climbing Trees, I wanted to capture that beautiful moment when the sunlight dances through the icing on the treetops and you can feel yourself looking up in wonderment just like you did when you were a kid.

“Aqua Dreams” New Textured oil painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Aqua Dreams” ©2013 Niki Gulley

36” x 60” textured oil on canvas

When we arrived at this tranquil spot, the early morning light was very cool in color, but as the sun began to rise from the horizon, it shone this beautiful warm light that shimmered on the water’s surface and cast its hope of what was to come from the brand new day. I remember the peacefulness I felt in that moment, and a sense that anything was possible. In Aqua Dreams, by showing the contrast in the cool aqua/blues in the foreground waters against the warm golden glow on the distant pond’s edge, I wanted to share that feeling of hope and promise communicated by nature.

If you would like to see my textured oil paintings in person, please stop by my booth at the Wells Street Art Fair in downtown Chicago this weekend.

Autumn Aspen Trees painting by Niki Gulley – Just Sold

“Symphony of Colors” ©2013 Niki Gulley
36″ x 60″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Just Sold and now hanging in the art collection at Prime Lending in north Dallas!

Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen and Oak 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, a band of slender straight trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling tumble of amber and crimson. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the wind whistling through the foliage.
