“Seasons of Change, Summer” Textured Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

“Seasons of Change, Summer” ©2013 Niki Gulley
30″ x 30″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas

With “Seasons of Change,” I wanted to focus on brilliant color and simple shapes to see if I could communicate the excitement I feel when surrounded by nature. Using energetic diagonal strokes and thick, textured paint, I hope you get a sense of the motion in the leaves and the power of nature to invigorate your spirit. I just love how this piece captured that essence!

This image looks great hung alone or with its companion piece pictured below.

“Heightened Awareness” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

Awareness III ©2013 Niki Gulley
48″ x 36″ • Textured mixed media on canvas

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up in into the treetops and the heavens above. I chose vibrant, cheerful yellows contrasted against a violet blue sky filled with big, puffy clouds. And, by arranging the aspens in a circular pattern heightened by thick, curving paint strokes, that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery are enhanced.

New Aspen Tree Oil Painting by contemporary impressionist Niki Gulley

“Symphony of Colors” ©2013 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 48″ x 60″ textured oil painting

Just Sold! I wanted this painting to be about the power and energy in nature to invigorate your spirit, so I chose to use warm vivid colors and thick staccato strokes to add to that feeling. I placed the foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, and so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance.
