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.

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 “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/.

New Contemporary Textured Purple Irises Painting by Niki Gulley

   

20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas • ©2021 Niki Gulley

Here you can see the next step in my painting process. I’ve started adding thick layers of paint to bring my purple irises to life. My garden was so beautiful and prolific this year that I felt compelled to capture that beauty on canvas. Taking the ideas that I started in this new series from inside my studio to outside in my backyard, I wanted to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. 

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

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. 

Here you can see the first step in my painting process, my charcoal sketch of the irises showing them larger than life. Next I will begin to add layers and layers of paint to build up texture and color so that the cheerful blooms come to life and dance across the canvas.

Recently collectors of mine invited us to stay with them at their beautiful home in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. I loved all of the gorgeous colors the houses were painted and the tropical lush foliage blooming everywhere.  The rooftop patios were ablaze with vibrant hues, fountains and incredible views of the city sprawling across the horizon. I hope you, too, can enjoy the peace and beauty of relaxing on this oasis in San Miguel.

Recently collectors of mine invited us to stay with them at their beautiful home in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. I loved all of the gorgeous colors the houses were painted and the tropical lush foliage blooming everywhere.  The bougainvillea was bursting with bountiful blooms in intense pinks inviting you to stop and admire its beauty. Before it was gone, I had to capture this dramatic morning sun that was causing this peach home to glow and the light to dance across the scene in contrast to the deep shadows.
