“Blue Rhapsody” Textured Abstract Bluebonnet Painting by Niki Gulley

  

 

“Blue Rhapsody” ©2022 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
Just Sold through The Good Art Company Gallery! In this painting, I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of our bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and vibrant wildflowers flowing along the grassy rises and falls of our berms in the Texas Hill Country. 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.

“Spring’s Tapestry” ©2020 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Just Sold through the Good Art Company! In this Texas wildflower series, I wanted to capture the excitement and energy felt during a beautiful day in April when the bluebonnets and wildflowers are painting the horizon in gorgeous shades of blue, reds and golds. Driving through the Hill Country late one day, the sun was just starting to drop, casting this golden hue across all of the wildflowers it hit causing them to glow and dance in the warm light. Deep, long  shadows added to the drama and magic of the moment. Focusing on the patterns of color and contrast of lights and darks, I wanted to communicate the emotion felt being surrounded by all of this Texas beauty.

Abstract Bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

    

 
“Nature’s Brushstrokes III” ©2022 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
In this painting, I wanted to render Texas bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush very abstractly. Focusing on the patterns of color that those vibrant reds and cobalt blues form, allows you to feel the excitement of peering into a huge field of wildflower glory. Mysterious light tries to break through the distant foliage and begin to illuminate the blossoms, beckoning you to explore what’s beyond.
