20″ x 30″ textured mixed media painting 
on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
Scrolling bark peels back like white washed parchment revealing secrets in the deeply textured wood below. A painting of grace and beauty, its verticality is offset by diagonal glowing autumn colors. Each stroke defined by thick textured paint and rich colors contrasted against subtle ivories, strike a reverberating chord and create a visual vibration that resonates in an optical song.

Red Rose Painting by Contemporary Expressionist Niki Gulley

 
“A Rose by Any Other Name” #9 ©2022 Niki Gulley
5″ x 5″ textured acrylic painting

A rose is a rose, is a rose. Not in my backyard – they are what I look at first thing in the morning as I am waiting on my coffee. I love to look out the windows to see if I have any new blooms and what color they are today. That way I can get an idea of what I want to paint that day.

Inspired by this gorgeous aspen grove, I wanted to capture the magical morning light casting its warm glow on the forest. Peaceful and mysterious, the sun’s rays peek through the knotted trunks causing the landscape to dance with light and awaken with autumn’s kaleidoscope of colors. Loaded with texture and layers and layers of paint, the forest shimmers with hope and discovery for the new day.

New “Autumn’s Tapestry” Kid’s Perspective Painting by Niki Gulley

“Autumn’s Tapestry” ©2022 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on board • 20″ x 20″
 

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and reds contrasted against a turquoise-blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest. Using diagonal leading lines with the tree trunks and limbs, your eye gazes into the focal point where all of the elements come together. Meanwhile, utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.
