I love the way the petals fell on these bearded irises, showing various shades of purple exposing their golden plumes.  Mist from the sprinklers causes the background colors to swirl and dance, creating a beautiful harmony in this scene.

Framed in bronze with linen liner and gold fillet as pictured (frame has a couple of small dents)
 
I wanted to capture the joy I felt seeing these vibrant tulips signaling that winter was finally over and spring had begun! This piece is bursting with color and energy, just like the blooms were. Peering from above into the open vessels allows you to take in their beautiful red and yellow patterns. I hope these tulips brighten your day and lift your spirits, too.

“Daffodils” Contemporary Impressionistic Floral Pastel by Niki Gulley

    

“Daffodils” ©Niki Gulley
18″ x 24” pastel on paper
 
Daffodils are symbols of spring and in many cultures their blooms kick off the start of many festivals. For me they just seem to make me happy. The petals appear to dance in the breeze with the colors inviting you in for a closer look. Their beauty is fleeting though, so I had to capture them quick before they faded out until next year.

32? x 26? framed size • pastel on board 
Framed as shown in silver metal frame with off white mat • (will be shipped in frame for protection, but will probably need to be reframed)
 
What a treat to find this little guy taking a break on these elephant ears at the Dallas Arboretum.  The black and orange of this monarch butterfly caught my eye but the curves of the ears led me right to him. Vibrant yellows with a rainbow of colors fill the background.

Impressionist Water Lily Pastel by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

 

“Liquid Mirror” 
pastel on paper 32” x 24” framed size
Framed as shown in burl wood with teal mats (this frame has a few flaws in the corners)
 
Sunlight reflects across deep blue water,
ribbons of gold glitter the pond’s surface; 
a water lily lifts its face toward the sun and gently dances across the water. 
Golden sunlight filters through the brambles and reeds, 
a touch of cardinal red peeks through colorful foliage 
while azure skies reflect in the water.

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.

Painting in Provence with Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

  

 

“Heavenly Valley” ©2024 Niki Gulley
24″ x 36″ textured acrylic painting on canvas 

 

Right before we started leading our Provence Art Trek, we had a few days to scout the landscape and paint and photograph the beautiful countryside.  This morning I set up my easel to paint this peaceful, pastoral scene filled with poppies, lavender and golden wheat. What a treat! Working from my sketch and photos back in my studio, I created this larger version of this colorful dream-filled landscape. I hope you get lost and can escape gazing into it!
 

Heavenly Valley will be on display at:
