New “Awakenings” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

 

 
“Awakenings” ©2022 Niki Gulley 

Four 36″ x 36″ canvases to form a 72″ x 72″ quadriptych • Textured Mixed Media Painting

 

In “Awakenings” 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 the sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the woods as they connect with the heavens above. Flowing from one season to the next, my goal is to not only show the beauty of nature, but also bring awareness to the importance of protecting our forests. Trees are the lifeblood of our planet. We are their stewards, and as such, it is up to us to ensure their survival. The ascending vortex and the seasons continuous transitioning, reminds us of the cyclical forces of life and what our place can be within it. Possibilities are endless. Relax. Contemplate. Dream.

“Evolving Seasons” Large Scale Quad Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 
“Evolving Seasons” ©2021 by Niki Gulley

Four 48″ x 36″ textured oil painting to form a 48″ x 144″ quadriptych

I wanted to create a large horizontal quadriptych, or four piece painting, that would flow from one season to the next to show the beauty of the forest throughout the year. Working on such a large scale invites you to step right into the scene and take a walk through the woods, enjoying all of the peace and joy that nature has to offer.

Here you can see all four paintings in a row, flowing from spring to summer and fall to winter. Rather than show the same exact scene at four different times of year, I decided I would rather show one long forest evolving from one season to the next to create a better harmony across the canvases. From the ground gently undulating underneath, to the pine trees flowing from canvas to canvas, to the rhythm created from aspens and oaks repeating, to the foliage and pops of color emerging and drifting into the distance, all elements are designed to add to the flowing symphony in “Evolving Seasons.

SOLD • 30″ x 48″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

 

Just Sold! I created “Flowing into Autumn” with many layers of paint, starting with a swirling thin application to form the tangled underbrush and flowing current to thick impasto strokes for texture and energy in the foliage and trunks. Water rushes downstream as autumn leaves dance in the gentle breeze.

Winter from the New “Evolving Seasons” Series by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Evolving Seasons – Winter” ©2019 by Niki Gulley
48″ x 36″ textured oil painting
Part of a 48″ x 144″ quadriptych

Working on such a large scale invites you to step right into the scene and take a walk through the woods, enjoying all of the peace and joy that nature has to offer.

In my final piece of this large quadriptych, winter has arrived. A blanket of fresh snow frosts the ground and trees above, creating a beautiful network of lace branches. A hint of the sun peeks through, illuminating the ground and causing the light to sparkle. In the corner a hint of fall ending is the last traces of color until spring returns. Now you can leave your footprints in the snow, enjoying the crisp air and quiet of the forest.

At last cooler days have arrived and fall is here! The glorious explosion of color is full of energy and excitement as a gentle breeze rustles the foliage and creates a beautiful symphony for your ears. Fallen leaves softly crunch underfoot as you go exploring and you get lost in the colorful tapestry that nature has to offer.

New Summer from the “Evolving Seasons” Series by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Evolving Seasons – Summer” ©2019 by Niki Gulley
48″ x 36″ textured oil painting
Part of a 48″ x 144″ quadriptych

I wanted to create a large horizontal quadriptych, or four piece painting, that would flow from one season to the next to show the beauty of the forest throughout the year. Working on such a large scale invites you to step right into the scene and take a walk through the woods, enjoying all of the peace and joy that nature has to offer.

Now in this second painting of summer, the leaves have completely filled out and the woods are loaded with dozens of shades of green in all of their glory. Yellow dandelions line the forest floor in a carpet of gold, signaling summer is in full bloom. Long days and shorter nights allow for more idle time to explore and get lost in the serenity of nature.
