“Through the Keyhole” Palette Knife Oil Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

  

“Through the Keyhole” ©2022 Niki Gulley
20” x 16” textured oil painting
 
I love the twisting, textured limbs of old oak trees, and the way these two branches formed a keyhole view of the forest beyond was fascinating. Arching the branches upward suggests a touch of whimsey like climbing a tree when you’re a kid. Loaded with texture and surprising pops of color, I hope you, too, are transported to an enchanted place filled with hope and wonder.

“If a tree Falls” Textured Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Along the Shoreline II” ©2022 Niki Gulley
24″ x 18″ Textured oil painting

I always love going to Turtle Creek, the natural oasis the city has created in the middle of Dallas. This painting was inspired from a time when you could actually climb down the rocks and enjoy the beautiful stream from below, being completely isolated from city noise and housing. I was drawn to these large abstract sweeping patterns of the water and land meeting with just a trickle of light illuminating the foliage in the distance and one lone trunk that has fallen.

“Along the Shoreline” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

 

“Along the Shoreline” ©2021 Niki Gulley
14″ x 18” textured oil painting on canvas

Early on a fall morning the sun breaks softly through leafy branches and casts early autumn’s palette across the creek. Silent water is ruffled by a gentle breeze. Arching over, bending into the quiet waters, a tree arches into the scene – encompassing, embracing. This painting captures the dreamy reflections and tranquil landscape of one of my favorite spots to paint on location near my home. It is painted in the traditional plein air oil manner, incorporating some heavy texture with palette knife.

on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
 
You walk down a path sheltered by autumn drenched trees, intrigued by the light flowing through the leaves and branches, casting shadows, colors changing with each gentle breeze, sunlight cascading down your pathway. Peaceful, tranquil this painting flows around the canvas capturing the memory of autumn: lush crisp colors, crunchy leaves and a walk through the woods Walt Whitman would have envied.

Slim white trunks sing out against the forest background and each leaf provides
a sparkling symphony of notes whispering through the landscape.
Flames of yellow leaves flicker against autumn’s burning hues
beckoning you to explore the magical journey ahead.
