New Contemporary Iris Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

  

 

“Bursting with Sunshine” Series ©2022 Niki Gulley
12″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
 

This series or Texas wildflowers, bearded irises and ruby red poppies, incorporates extremely thick paint applied with palette knife along with drips and swirls to add energy and whimsy. This gives the paintings a 3D feel that comes alive and jumps off the canvas, while adding joy and color to your room. If you’d like to see companion pieces in the series, please e-mail me to see my other options.

Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley Painting Roses in Her Garden

“Moving Expectations III” ©2022 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

As my garden kept evolving this spring, I was treated every day to a new blossoming surprise! After my irises were complete, I was greeted by the most gorgeous roses I’ve seen since I planted them 5 years ago. So, of course I had to go out and capture those beauties before they disappeared. 

 Wanting to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light, I painted the blooms large to add to that feeling of hope and exuberance. Choosing to leave the background airy and working with thick layers of white on white paint, multi-colored roses dance across the canvas with spontaneity and freedom. I hope these paintings bring the beauty of nature inside and fill your spirit with light and cheer.

“Running Red III” Textured Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

 “Running Red III” ©2022 Niki Gulley

30″ x 48″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

In this 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.

“Flowing into Spring” Palette Knife Painting by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Flowing into Spring” ©2022 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, framed in an espresso floater frame
 
I painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full bloom. I love tulips being one of the first flowers to announce that winter has officially ended, so I focused on these colorful red and white striped ones in the foreground, which contrast so well against the complimentary green leaves and grasses. I also liked how their height leads you back into the distant flower beds and onto the Degolyer house in the background, so I chose this vertical panorama format to accentuate that feeling. Loaded with thick oil paint, texture and movement, I hope you can feel the joy that spring is in the air!

Painting Irises in the Garden by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

   

“Moving Expectations II” ©2021 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas 

My irises this year were so beautiful and prolific and added so much joy after the year that we had, that I felt compelled to capture that feeling on canvas. Taking the ideas that I started in this new series from inside my studio to outside in my garden, my goal was to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. Painting the flowers larger than life and adding layers and layers of paint to build up texture, the cheerful blooms come to life and dance across the canvas.

New “Moving Expectations” Contemporary Floral Painting by Niki Gulley

“Moving Expectations” ©2021 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas 

Taking the ideas that I started in this new series from inside my studio to outside in my garden, my goal was to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. My irises this year were so beautiful and prolific and added so much joy after the year that we had, that I felt compelled to capture their symbols of optimism.

Painting the yellow 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. With room to roam, I hope these paintings bring the beauty of nature inside and fill your spirit with light and cheer.

New “Bougainvillea Archway” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Bougainvillea Archway” ©2021 Niki Gulley

12″ x 16″ textured oil painting on canvas panel

Framed in 3” espresso frame. • $950 framed / $800 unframed

Painted on location in Spain, these Bougainvillea vines were so gorgeous and prolific that I just had to paint them. Gently reaching across and cascading over the trellis and wrapping themselves around white washed columns, these magenta beauties formed the perfect welcoming entrance framing the intricate turquoise doorway. Purple shadows from plumbago plantings lead you along the cobbled path, inviting you to step inside and enjoy the view.

To purchase and for more details, please visit nikigulley.com/bougainvillea-archway/.
