“Reaching for the Sun” Sunflower Painting by Niki Gulley

 
Reaching for the Sun” ©2021 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!

SOLD • 18″ x 24″ textured oil painting

 

Just sold through The Statton Gallery! This sunflower field that I visited in the middle of the pandemic was GORGEOUS. It felt like it stretched for miles. Bright, happy faces sharing their smiles with us and lifting our spirits. My heart literally swelled and I had to capture all of that joy on canvas.  Utilizing vivid, uplifting hues, thick paint and bold, loose strokes add to the happy, carefree feeling of the moment and I hope you are transported there with me.

Cheerful Sunflower Painting by Palette Knife Artist Niki Gulley

“Sunny Celebration” ©2020 Niki Gulley
30″ x 48″ textured oil painting

Sunny Celebration is inspired from the beautiful sunflower fields we visited in Provence, France. The flowers seemed to stretch forever and the color explosion was out of this world! Back in my studio, I worked from a combination of photos, on-site sketches and memories. Painting the sunflowers full-sized in the foreground helps to bring them to life and hopefully transport you to this happy location. Including cheerful poppies in vivid reds and surprising pops of color keeps your eye moving throughout the scene, seeing new things each time you look at it, and adds to the joyful feeling.

New “Garden Glory” Textured Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Garden Glory” ©2020 Niki Gulley
24″ x 20″ Textured oil painting on 1″ Cradled Board with the painting continuing around the edges
 
 After several months of 90 to 100 degree temperatures, I have been relishing the cool mornings and highs in the 80s. Once more my backyard was calling me to set up my easel and capture all of our hard-earned efforts. My hours of weeding, watering, pruning and planting all paid off and I have thoroughly enjoyed our colorful bounty of blooms! From beautiful, tangled Russian sage, to vibrant red and yellow cannas, to cheerful sunflowers that blossomed all summer long, our garden’s symphony lifted our spirits daily.
