“Colors of Colmar” ©2023 Niki Gulley
12″ x 12″ textured acrylic painting on canvas panel
Painted on location in the Alsatian town of Colmar, France, the scenery was inspiring everywhere you looked. Straight out of a postcard, practically every view is storybook picture perfect. Today I set up my easel amongst the Russian sage and Black-eyed Susans to capture their joy and energy with a sliver of the cross-timbered architecture in the distance to set the stage. I hope you are transported to this beautiful, magical place!

Venice Art Trek with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams – Day 3: Rialto Market
After breakfast, we took a vaporetto tour of the island and got off at the Rialto bridge where we wandered the fruit, vegetable and fish markets. We left the photographers there to shoot while we set up our easels in this quiet spot marking the oldest restaurant in Venice. This bridge had so much character being made completely of wood, decorated in plantings and flanked by red and white poles that we just had to paint it!
