Framed as shown in silver wood with off white mat (minor flaws in the silver frame)
 
 
I love the way the petals fell on these bearded irises, showing various shades of purple exposing their golden plumes.  Mist from the sprinklers causes the background colors to swirl and dance, creating a beautiful harmony in this scene.

“Daffodils” Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Pastel by Niki Gulley

    

“Daffodils” ©Niki Gulley
18″ x 24” pastel on paper
 
Daffodils are symbols of spring and in many cultures their blooms kick off the start of many festivals. For me they just seem to make me happy. The petals appear to dance in the breeze with the colors inviting you in for a closer look. Their beauty is fleeting though, so I had to capture them quick before they faded out until next year.

New “Rosy Surprise II” Palette Knife Painting by Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

 

“Rosy Surprise II” ©2024 Niki Gulley
24″ x 24″ Textured Acrylic on Canvas

What a beautiful surprise to have these roses blooming in my garden this winter! Of course the next night it was supposed to freeze and I couldn’t let these beauties go to waste. After cutting and assembling them in a vase, I just kept staring at them as they were bringing so much color and joy to the grey day. Despite several projects on my plate, I had to take a break and capture these rosy fleeting blooms. May they bring some vibrancy to your winter days, too.

SOLD • 5″ x7″ textured oil painting on panel
 
 
Just Sold! While in Iceland my husband decided to take a 3 hour round trip hike to a waterfall that I had seen the day before. So I decided to stay back at the beginning of the trail to paint. It was a beautiful setting, although it was somewhat difficult to paint with my 5 layers of clothes on that day!

“Awakenings” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

  

 
“Awakenings” ©2023 Niki Gulley 

Four 36″ x 36″ canvases to form a 72″ x 72″ quadriptych • Textured Mixed Media Painting

 

In “Awakenings” I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops, mesmerized by the scene overhead. I’ve arranged the trunks in a spiral pattern so that you have the sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the woods as they connect with the heavens above. Flowing from one season to the next, my goal is to not only show the beauty of nature, but also bring awareness to the importance of protecting our forests. Trees are the lifeblood of our planet. We are their stewards, and as such, it is up to us to ensure their survival. The ascending vortex and the seasons continuous transitioning, reminds us of the cyclical forces of life and what our place can be within it. Possibilities are endless. Relax. Contemplate. Dream. 

 

To purchase the original “Awakenings” painting, please visit nikigulley.com/awakenings/.

“Evolving Seasons” Large Scale Quad Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

  

“Evolving Seasons” ©2023 by Niki Gulley

Four 48″ x 36″ textured oil painting to form a 48″ x 144″ quadriptych

I wanted to create a large horizontal quadriptych, or four piece painting, that would flow from one season to the next to show the beauty of the forest throughout the year. Working on such a large scale invites you to step right into the scene and take a walk through the woods, enjoying all of the peace and joy that nature has to offer.

Here you can see all four paintings in a row, flowing from spring to summer and fall to winter. Rather than show the same exact scene at four different times of year, I decided I would rather show one long forest evolving from one season to the next to create a better harmony across the canvases. From the ground gently undulating underneath, to the pine trees flowing from canvas to canvas, to the rhythm created from aspens and oaks repeating, to the foliage and pops of color emerging and drifting into the distance, all elements are designed to add to the flowing symphony in “Evolving Seasons.

To see my “Evolving Seasons” series, please visit the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX at https://www.goodartcompany.com/niki-gulley.
