Niki Gulley demonstrating at Marigold Arts Gallery
 
A couple of weeks ago, we visited Santa Fe and I demonstrated my technique in oils at Marigold Arts Gallery. After the sweltering heat in Dallas, the weather felt wonderful in New Mexico and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone!
 
If you are in the area, please stop by and visit the gallery to see more of my palette knife western landscape paintings.

“Trail’s End” Abstract Autumn Landscape Painting by Niki Gulley

“Trail’s End” ©2021 Niki Gulley
40” x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
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.

New “Heaven Sent” Uplifting Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Heaven Sent” ©2021 Niki Gulley
24″ x 34″ textured mixed media painting on 3/4″ canvas with the painting wrapping around the edges
In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting autumn tones contrasted against a soft blue sky, gentle clouds drift by as the sun peeks through casting its magical light on everything it touches and lifting your spirits. Arranging the trees in a circular pattern gives you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest and directs your eye to hope’s focal point. Utilizing thick, energetic paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of promise and discovery.

New “Whispers in Time” Aspen Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Whispers in Time” ©2021 Niki Gulley

30” x 30” textured oil painting
 
Colorado’s celebrated quaking aspen trees stand arrow straight in the valleys and 
up and down the hills. 
Slim white trunks sing out against the forest background and each leaf provides
a sparkling symphony of notes whispering through the mountains.
Flames of yellow leaves flicker against autumn’s burning reds 
and the deep, cool blue mountain streaked with late light.
 
This painting captures the breathtaking colors of
Colorado in the fall, the Aspens at their most beautiful, and the peaceful rustling murmur and musical sigh of the fluttering leaves.

“Soaring Dreams II” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Soaring Dreams II” ©2020 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 34″ x 34″
 

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and reds contrasted against a lavender-blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest. Using diagonal leading lines with the tree trunks and limbs, your eye gazes into the focal point where all of the elements come together. Meanwhile, utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.
