Palette Knife Iris Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Flowing into Spring III” ©2018 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas • Lee Park, Dallas
Framed in a 2″ espresso floater frame

 
Painted on location at Lee Park in Dallas, I loved how the irises signaled that spring was in full bloom. Standing tall, anchoring this corner of the creek these purple blooms lead your eye up through the canvas, along the water’s edge to the stone bridge in the distance. The soft light adds to the peacefulness of this tranquil spot, and I hope all of your cares are transported away while lifting your spirits.

“Flowing into Spring” Palette Knife Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Flowing into Spring” ©2018 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
I painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location a few weeks ago when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full bloom. I love tulips being one of the first flowers to announce that winter has officially ended, so I focused on these colorful red and white striped ones in the foreground, which contrast so well against the complimentary green leaves and grasses. I also liked how their height leads you back into the distant flower beds and onto the Degolyer house in the background, so I chose this vertical panorama format to accentuate that feeling. Loaded with thick oil paint, texture and movement, I hope you can feel the joy that spring is in the air!“Flowing into Spring” along with several of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings are available through Seaside Gallery in Pismo Beach, CA.

I painted this scene from the Dallas Arboretum on location a few weeks ago when the weather was beautiful and the spring buds were in full bloom. I was attracted to this Azalea trail with the vivid fuchsia blossoms tucked away in this cool, shady, peaceful garden. Choosing a vertical panoramic format leads your eye from the azaleas to wander up the trail towards the light and the beautiful dogwood tree in the distance, all while lifting your spirits.
