New “Prickly Tower” Contemporary Cactus Painting by Niki Gulley

“Prickly Tower” ©2020 Niki Gulley
48″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media Painting on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 

On a recent trip, we came across these gigantic cacti. I had never seen such a large cactus before and I was awestruck by its age and size. Purposely choosing this angle from below and narrowing the perspective as it stretches to the dramatic clouds drifting by in the sky, you can get a sense of its scale. Filled with vibrant colors and dragging my paint in swirling, diagonal patterns add to the energy and joy of the scene.

New “Reaching for the Sun” Sunflower Painting by Niki Gulley

 
Reaching for the Sun” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on canvas

I painted these sunflowers right in my backyard. We patiently awaited as we watched them grow practically 6 inches every day, thinking any minute they would bloom. They were so fun to watch! Blossoms the size of dinner plates, chased the sun and smiled at us from the backyard. I had to go out over the course of several mornings and capture all of that happy beauty. Loaded with texture and energy, these flowers practically spring to life from the canvas!

New “Nature’s Brushstrokes” diptych painting by Niki Gulley

  

“Nature’s Brushstrokes IV” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 48″ diptych textured mixed painting on canvas

I love it when we are driving through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of this brilliant carpet of red. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

“Tidal Flow” Palette Knife Abstract Seascape by Niki Gulley

     

  “Tidal Flow” ©2020 Niki Gulley

SOLD • 16″ x 16″ Textured Mixed Media on 3/4″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

In this series, I layered and layered and layered paint over the course of several weeks. Longing for a cool beach and the cathartic sounds of the ocean, I started with drippy, fluid paint and  then built up thick texture to bring the seaside waves to life. Slightly abstract, loose and free, I hope you can feel the healing qualities of the water, especially if we can’t get there ourselves right now.
