New Sunflower Field palette knife oil painting by Niki Gulley

“Sun Filled Memories” ©2014 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Inspired by our travels to Provence, I painted these cheerful sunflowers with extremely thick oil paint and palette knife so that the resulting image leaps off the canvas and is loaded with energy, color and texture.

“Sun Filled Memories” and several of my contemporary impressionistic landscapes are also on display at the Good Art Company Gallery in Fredericksburg, TX. For more information, please contact

Sunflower Study by Niki Gulley
Acrylic 5” x 7”

I created this sunflower study with palette knife and extremely thick acrylic paint to achieve texture and dimension. I love how the bright colors pop and brighten up any room, and how the strokes contain so much movement and energy.
