New “Walking in Sunshine” by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Walking in Sunshine” ©2020 Niki Gulley 
18″ x 24″ textured oil painting
“Walking in Sunshine” was inspired by a trip to Provence, France. Our timing was perfect and the sunflowers were in full bloom. Their bright, smiling faces as big as dinner plates, the path leading you deep into the golden field to the quaint stone farmhouse in the distance, and the beautiful late summer day made for the ideal subject. The resulting painting is full of warmth, color and texture, and my hope is that when you gaze into it, this piece lifts your spirits and brightens up any spot in your home.

New Sunflower Painting and Upcoming Provence Art Trek with Niki Gulley

“Sharing the Sun” ©2013 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ • textured oil on canvas

Inspired by our trip to Provence last summer, I was awestruck by these massive fields of sunflowers blooming. Seeing this brilliant carpet of gold, with its sea of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. In person “Sharing the Sun” practically leaps off the canvas with its vibrant yellow petals and extremely thick three-dimensional oil paint.

Next summer we will be leading an Art Trek to Paris June 19-27 and Provence, France June 26-July 4, so if you’ve always dreamed of painting, photographing and sightseeing during lavender and sunflower season in France, and following in the footsteps of Monet, Van Gogh and Cezanne, please join us for this amazing trip! The early registration deadline of Sept. 28th for a $600 savings is quickly approaching. For more details, visit
