“Symphony in Springtime II” Textured Abstract Bluebonnet Painting by Niki Gulley

“Symphony in Springtime II” ©2020 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
In this painting, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of our berms in the Texas Hill Country. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

New Abstract Bluebonnet and Wildflower Painting by Niki Gulley

 A few months ago, one of my doctors suggested I try meditation. Not only do I think it’s helping with the illnesses, but as a bonus, painting ideas will appear in my head as I’m meditating. So here are some of the new pieces that are flowing out of me. You’ll see they’re a twist on reality with nature abstracted through color, strokes and texture. I hope they lift you up and create a sense of mystery, leaving interpretation up to your imagination.

SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 

Just sold! I wanted to show Texas’ spring landscape in a completely different way. With an aura of mystery and the promise of what tomorrow holds, late day light sparkles over the horizon casting its warm glow kissing everything it touches with glimmers of hope. The vague suggestion of bluebonnets and colorful wildflowers peek through the dancing golden tangle, leaving the landscape loose and free so that your imagination can tell its story. May you relish the joy in the beauty of nature, bathing in the moment and looking forward to what tomorrow will bring.

New “Reaching for the Sun” Sunflower Painting by Niki Gulley

 
Reaching for the Sun” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on canvas

I painted these sunflowers right in my backyard. We patiently awaited as we watched them grow practically 6 inches every day, thinking any minute they would bloom. They were so fun to watch! Blossoms the size of dinner plates, chased the sun and smiled at us from the backyard. I had to go out over the course of several mornings and capture all of that happy beauty. Loaded with texture and energy, these flowers practically spring to life from the canvas! 

I’m excited to have been invited to exhibit at Studio Seven Arts in Pleasanton, CA. If you’d like to see or find out more details about Reaching for the Sun, please check them out:

This is part of a new series of paintings that I am doing that incorporates a couple of different techniques, from thicker paint applied with palette knife along with drips and swirls. This gives the painting even more of a 3D feel that just comes alive and jumps off the page.

“Tuscan Vista” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Tuscan Vista” ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16” textured oil painting
 
I painted “Tuscan Vista” from the villa we stay in when my husband and I are leading our Foodie Trek in Italy. The late afternoon light was so beautiful how it cast its golden glow on the landscape and stone farmhouses, and I had to capture it before it was gone. Uplifting poppies frame the foreground as the serpentine roads lead you up over the hills and into the distance. I hope you enjoy the escape to beautiful Tuscany, too, when you gaze at my painting!

New “Ruby Road” Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

“Ruby Bouquet” ©2020 Niki Gulley
12″ x 16” textured oil painting

I absolutely love it when I come across a whole field of wildflowers – there is something about the transformation of a single dainty flower into a dense explosion of color that inspires awe and delights your senses. Inspired by our travels to Italy, cypress trees rise out of the vast open landscape signaling that you have arrived in Tuscany! Perched on a hilltop with its long curving driveway, this villa is set against the perfect backdrop for a romantic escape. Rows of ruby blooms draw your eye back to the rolling hills and beautiful billowing clouds. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this canvas is loaded with movement, color and dimension.

If you’d like more details on Ruby Road and more of my Tuscany painting, please contact Brandon Jacobs Gallery in Kansas City, MO, brandonjacobsgallery.com.
