“Reclining Thoughts” ©2021 Niki Gulley
40″ x 30” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the joy of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing warm yellows, reds and greens and utilizing thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

“Autumn Serenade” Palette Knife Fall Foliage Painting by Niki Gulley

 

 

“Autumn Serenade”  ©2021 Niki Gulley

36″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen, Oak and the forest of trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, slender trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling kaleidoscope of colors. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the breeze whistling through the foliage.

New “Sparking the Imagination” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Sparking the Imagination” ©2021 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 “Whispers in Time” Aspen Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Whispers in Time” ©2021 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.
