 “Tranquility of Spring” ©2022 Niki Gulley

12″ x 18″ Textured Acrylic on Panel

Painted on location, this beautiful, peaceful spot kept calling me back to capture it. Between the soft morning light, the carpet of azure blues formed by rows and rows of Texas bluebonnets and the gentle shimmer on the pond’s surface, I?had to capture the tranquility of the moment. I hope you are also transported to an uplifing place overflowing with the cathartic feelings of being surrounded by Texas’ beauty in springtime.

New “Enduring Legacy” Texas Landscape by Impressionist Artist Niki Gulley

“Enduring Legacy” ©2022 Niki Gulley

24″ x 12″ textured acrylic painting on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the scene continuing around the edges

These two massive, gnarly trees seemed to rise out of nowhere amongst the rolling fields of Texas bluebonnets.  I feel like they had a story to tell, and I needed to capture their enduring presence by making them the focus of my painting. Purposely choosing this elongated canvas gives their trunks and limbs plenty of room to express their legacy and emphasize their majesty. Exciting pops of color, energetic strokes and a touch of whimsy add to the joy of these ancestral beauties.

New “Kinetic Blues II” Highly Textured Bluebonnet Painting by Niki Gulley

  

“Kinetic Blues II” ©2022 Niki Gulley

SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured mixed media on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

Just sold through the Good Art Company Gallery!  I wanted this painting to convey the joy of being surrounded by our gorgeous Texas wildflowers. Painting these bluebonnets larger than life and flinging and pouring paint to create a joyful, kinetic kaleidoscope, I feel like the result really lifts one’s spirits. Playing with a calming palette of blues, yellows and greens and building up a lot of texture with palette knives also adds to the energetic, peaceful presence of being immersed in nature.

 “Melting Blues” ©2022 Niki Gulley

36″ x 60″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

In this new series, I wanted to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. Working on oversized canvases and painting the blossoms larger than life add to that feeling of hope and exuberance. Choosing to leave the background airy and working with thick layers of white on white paint, ribbons of brightly colored blooms dance across the canvas with spontaneity and freedom. Subconsciously, I feel like these light-filled visions came to me in response to so much bad news and the COVID lockdown. Searching for a way to create more space, room to roam and the freedom to live life to its fullest, I hope these paintings bring the beauty of nature inside and fill your spirit with light and cheer.
