New “Meandering Journey” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

 

“Meandering Journey”  © Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil on canvas panel
 
Recently, we visited Santa Fe and to escape the heat we ventured up the Santo de Cristo mountains to cool down amongst the beautiful, refreshing aspen trees. I was drawn to this meandering path leading through the aspens with its dappled light creating such gorgeous shadows. Having fun capturing all of the different textures with palette knife from the lush grasses to the feathery wildflowers to the peeling bark on the aspen trees, I set out to recreate the peace and beauty of this forest. I hope you, too, can feel the serenity of this rejuvenating place and enjoy an uplifting walk in the woods.

“Standing Witness” Palette Knife Aspen Painting by Niki Gulley

“Standing Witness”©2021 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting
 
Recently, we visited Santa Fe and to escape the heat we ventured up the Santo de Cristo mountains to cool down among the beautiful, refreshing aspen trees. I was attracted to this grove in particular with their beautiful textured white bark and their proximity and angles to each other. I decided to include the sentinels behind, also, to give you a sense of being surrounded by the peaceful forest. Dappled light casts diagonal shadows and causes the grasses to dance and sparkle. I hope you can feel the serenity of this rejuvenating place.

Follow the deep wood’s path and wander under a canopy of sheltering leaves, light shifts through each branch and twig.

“Nature’s Brushstrokes” diptych painting by Niki Gulley

“Nature’s Brushstrokes IV” ©2021 Niki Gulley
24″ x 48″ diptych textured mixed painting on canvas

I love it when we are driving through the countryside and we come across a gorgeous field of wildflowers. The sudden burst of color thrills your senses! I wanted to capture the rhythm, color, and density of this brilliant carpet of red. Making sure not to over blend my thick strokes so that you could see the marks and feel the energy found in nature. Repeating patterns and waves of color create a harmony within the painting, while rendering the blooms and their surroundings abstractly plays with taking a traditional subject matter and showing it in a contemporary way.

“Rooted Together” from Monet’s Garden by Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Rooted Together” ©2021 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on canvas

 Rooted Together was inspired from a trip we took to Monet’s Gardens outside of Paris. Being a lover of impressionist paintings, I was awestruck standing in the footsteps of one of my favorite painters! The gardens have been maintained immacuately and I could see exactly where Monet painted his paintings. I’ve always loved påurple irises and was particularly drawn to this view with the two irises entangled together. Off in the distance, you can see Monet’s picturesque house with that spectacular view of his garden.

“Red Carpet Ride” Texas Wildflower Painting by Niki Gulley

“Red Carpet Ride” ©2020 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
Just Sold through the Good Art Company! In this Texas wildflower series, I wanted to capture the excitement and energy felt during a beautiful day in April when the Indian Paintbrush, bluebonnets and wildflowers are painting the horizon in gorgeous shades of reds and blues. Driving through the Hill Country late one day, the sun was just starting to drop, casting this golden hue across all of the wildflowers it hit causing them to glow and dance in the warm light. Deep, long shadows and the abundance of rich crimson Indian Paintbrush added to the drama and magic of the moment. Focusing on the patterns of color and contrast of lights and darks, I wanted to communicate the emotion felt being surrounded by all of this Texas beauty.

“Reaching for the Sun” Sunflower Painting by Niki Gulley

 
Reaching for the Sun” ©2021 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on canvas

I painted these sunflowers right in my backyard. We patiently awaited as we watched them grow practically 6 inches every day, thinking any minute they would bloom. They were so fun to watch! Blossoms the size of dinner plates, chased the sun and smiled at us from the backyard. I had to go out over the course of several mornings and capture all of that happy beauty. Loaded with texture and energy, these flowers practically spring to life from the canvas!
