“Standing Witness” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Standing Witness”©2021 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.

Follow the deep wood’s path and wander under a canopy of sheltering leaves, light shifts through each branch and twig.

New Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley – Just Sold

“Destination Unknown” ©2013 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 48” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Just Sold to Prime Lending in North Dallas. On one of our plein air painting trips we led, we happened upon this gorgeous aspen grove. Enjoying the melodic tinkling of the aspen leaves rustling in the breeze, the trickling sounds of the babbling brook at our backs, and the beauty of fall ablaze with color, I felt invigorated as I began painting. The setting was so peaceful and rejuvenating that I wanted to communicate that joyful feeling of discovery in this piece. Filling the canvas with energetic staccato strokes and bold colors, in addition to gently arching the tree trunks towards the sky add to that uplifting feeling. And then just a sliver of the trail cutting through the forest, suggests the excitement of the journey that is to come.

“Reclining Thoughts” New Textured Aspen oil painting

“Reclining Thoughts” ©2013 Niki Gulley
48″ x 36” textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

In this painting, I wanted you to you to experience the wonderment of looking up into the treetops – just like you did when you were a kid. Lying on the ground, not a care in the world, you gaze in wonderment as the clouds drift by. Choosing playful colors and thick chunky staccato strokes add to that childlike whimsy and I hope you are transported back to a happy, carefree time and place.

“Symphony of Colors” New Textured Aspen Tree oil painting

“Symphony of Colors” ©2013 Niki Gulley
36″ x 60″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

Shimmering colors of autumn: Aspen and Oak trees quiver, their light graceful leaves tremble and quake, silver and gold, scarlet and tangerine, with each light breeze. There is the quiet energy of change coming and vibrant color charges the woods. Crisp fall mountain air, a band of slender straight trunks cut bright strokes of white against a dazzling tumble of amber and crimson. Staccato strokes and shimmering hues add to the feeling of change in the air and suggest the wind whistling through the foliage.

Textured Aspen Paintings series

“Seasonal Shifts, Autumn” ©2012 Niki Gulley
12″ x 12″ textured oil on canvas


I painted this aspen grove with extremely thick oil paint and palette knife. The resulting canvas is loaded with texture, color and energy! I’ve painted it on 1 and 1/2 inch deep stretcher bars, with the image continuing around the edges so that it can be hung as is frameless for a contemporary look. This image looks great hung alone to brighten up a little spot, or in a grouping with some of the other seasons I’ve painted to fill a larger space. Take a look at nikigulley.com/the-art/textured-oils/ to find complimentary companion pieces.

Autumn Aspen Painting available as Canvas Prints by Niki Gulley

“Emergence” ©2012 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ or 28″ x 40″ Embellished Canvas Print

I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit more so than an exact replica of the forest, so I chose to use warm vivid colors and thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance.

Emergence is now available as a stretched canvas print. 
I have added thick paint to the prints so they are loaded with texture. 
They are UV coated and are stretched with the painting continuing around the edges on 3/4″ stretcher bars so that they can be hung as is without a frame, or if you prefer a traditional look, they can be framed also. 
Please e-mail me for frame sample and prices or if you would prefer the print on deeper stretcher bars, e-mail me for a quote. 
20″ x 30″ for $295 • 28″ x 40″ for $495
A close up detail of the added thick paint in the leaves and the trunks.
Print wrapped around 3/4″ stretcher bars.
