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

“Whispers in Time” ©2022 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.

“Sparking the Imagination” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Sparking the Imagination” ©2022 Niki Gulley 
 36″ x 36″ textured mixed media on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges    

With “Sparking the Imagination,” 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 a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by woodland, connecting with nature and the heavens above. Flowing in an ascending circular pattern, transitioning from spring, summer, winter, fall and back again to spring, reminds us of the cyclical forces of life and what our place can be within it.

New “Awakenings” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

 

 
“Awakenings” ©2022 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/.
