“A Knot in the Woods” Abstract Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

              

“Knot in the Woods” ©2022 Niki Gulley
30″ x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
Bordering on the edge of abstraction and the cusp of realism, Knot in the Woods is loaded with layers of paint, built up with thin glazes and then palette knife to create extreme dimension. Choosing to come in tight on the subject, I played around with various strokes and paint thicknesses to add depth and dimension. Splashes of gold and pops of fire-engine red add excitement and energy to the expansive aspen forest.

“Knot in the Woods II” ©2022 Niki Gulley

20″ x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
Scrolling bark peels back like white washed parchment revealing secrets in the deeply textured wood below. A painting of grace and beauty, its verticality is offset by diagonal glowing autumn colors. Each stroke defined by thick textured paint and rich colors contrasted against subtle ivories, strike a reverberating chord and create a visual vibration that resonates in an optical song.

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.

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.
