New Joyful Sunflower Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Jumping for Joy” ©2024 Niki Gulley
36″ x 48” textured acrylic painting on wrap around canvas
 

Being a huge Van Gogh fan, I wanted this piece to be uplifting and full of color and energy just like how I feel to be surrounded by a joyful field of sunflowers! Perky, circular faces smile at you as their golden petals dance across the canvas. Painting these blooms full-sized helps to bring them to life and hopefully transport you to this happy location. Including surprising pops of vivid reds, purples and blues keep your eye moving throughout the scene, seeing new things each time you look at it, and adds to the jubilant feeling.

Palette Knife Seascape Painting by Niki Gulley

    

Just Sold! I love everything about going to the beach. I love gazing into the endless horizon while listening to the rhythmic sounds of waves crashing against the shore. I love feeling the warmth of the sun against my skin while the cool sand squishes between my toes. And, I love how all of my cares disappear and I feel completely at peace engulfed in the moment.

So, getting to paint along the shoreline is almost as close as it gets to perfection! I hope you, too, can feel the joy and serenity of gazing at the ocean in this piece.

New Abstracted Iris Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

   

“Joyful Interlude” ©2024 Niki Gulley
30″ x 30″ Textured Acrylic on Canvas 

My irises last year were so beautiful and prolific. Whenever I gazed at them, I experienced so much joy, that I felt compelled to capture that feeling on canvas. My goal was to create pieces that are full of energy, texture and light. Painting the flowers larger than life and adding layers and layers of paint to build up texture, the cheerful blooms come to life and dance across the canvas.

Bright sunshine warmed up the day and caused the light to glow and dance. I hope you can enjoy the escape of a leisurely drive through the beautiful autumn scenery of New Mexico.

36″ x 36″ textured mixed media on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

With such depressing news these days, I felt compelled to paint something that would make us feel much better. And, it worked on me, so I hope it does the same for you. I felt so much happier after painting this larger than life bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush scene. Working with palette knife and a lot of texture, reveling in the process of flinging and pouring paint to create a joyful, kinetic kaleidoscope, and playing with a cheerful palette of reds, yellows and blues, I feel like this one really lifts one’s spirits and has a touch of whimsy to it.

New “Rosy Surprise II” Palette Knife Painting by Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

 

“Rosy Surprise II” ©2024 Niki Gulley
24″ x 24″ Textured Acrylic on Canvas

What a beautiful surprise to have these roses blooming in my garden this winter! Of course the next night it was supposed to freeze and I couldn’t let these beauties go to waste. After cutting and assembling them in a vase, I just kept staring at them as they were bringing so much color and joy to the grey day. Despite several projects on my plate, I had to take a break and capture these rosy fleeting blooms. May they bring some vibrancy to your winter days, too.
