“Standing Witness” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Standing Witness”©2020 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
Recently, we visited Santa Fe and to escape the heat we ventured up the Santo de Cristo mountains to cool down among the beautiful, refreshing aspen trees. I was attracted to this grove in particular with their beautiful textured white bark and their proximity and angles to each other. I decided to include the sentinels behind, also, to give you a sense of being surrounded by the peaceful forest. Dappled light casts diagonal shadows and causes the grasses to dance and sparkle. I hope you can feel the serenity of this rejuvenating place.

New “Meandering Journey” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Meandering Journey”
16″ x 20″ textured oil by Niki Gulley
 
Recently, we visited Santa Fe and to escape the heat we ventured up the Santo de Cristo mountains to cool down amongst the beautiful, refreshing aspen trees. I was drawn to this meandering path leading through the aspens with its dappled light creating such gorgeous shadows. Having fun capturing all of the different textures with palette knife from the lush grasses to the feathery wildflowers to the peeling bark on the aspen trees, I set out to recreate the peace and beauty of this forest. I hope you, too, can feel the serenity of this rejuvenating place and enjoy an uplifting walk in the woods.

“Autumn Memories” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Autumn Memories” ©2020 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ texture oil painting

I painted Autumn Memories to bring back the serenity I feel while walking through the woods on a cool autumn day, being totally immersed in nature, and not a care in the world. I chose pure, intense reds and yellows contrasted against autumn grasses and pops of purple to create a fall forest that vibrates with color, energy and sound. I hope you are transported with me to this cathartic aspen forest!

This is part of a new series of paintings that I am doing that incorporates a couple of different techniques, from thicker paint applied with palette knife   along with drips and swirls. This gives the painting even more of a 3D feel that just comes alive and jumps off the page.

Vermont Fall Foliage Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
Stowe, VT
 
Every day we were in New England, we’d drive through this gorgeous fall canopy. So one morning when the light was sparkling through the leaves, I decided to set my easel up along the road to capture its beauty and mystery. I loved the curve of the road beckoning you into the autumn glow. The dappled light also created a warmth leading your eye through the painting, onto the journey ahead.

I liked the contrast of the cool purple in the flowers against the warm light of the textured wall behind them. Accentuating the circular design they were forming along with creating curving paint strokes, adds to a feeling of movement and energy, almost as if the petals are dancing in the breeze.
