“Barn at LBJ Ranch” Oil Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

             

“Barn at LBJ Ranch”  ©2022 Niki Gulley •  9″ x 12″ palette knife oil painting
 
I created this while on a painting competition for the American Impressionists Society which was held in Fredericksburg, TX this spring. We were open to painting anything that we would like and I ran across this beautiful red barn nestled in amongst the massive, gnarly trees on the LBJ Ranch and just couldn’t resist painting it.

“Autumn’s Tapestry” Kid’s Perspective Painting by Niki Gulley

   

 

“Autumn’s Tapestry” ©2022 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on board • 20″ x 20″
 

In this painting I wanted you to feel that child-like wonder of staring up into the treetops and heavens above. Choosing uplifting golds and reds contrasted against a turquoise-blue sky with gentle clouds drifting by, I’ve arranged the aspens in a circular pattern to give you a sense of laying on the ground, surrounded by the forest. Using diagonal leading lines with the tree trunks and limbs, your eye gazes into the focal point where all of the elements come together. Meanwhile, utilizing thick, curving paint strokes adds to that joyful, playful feeling of hope and discovery.

“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.

“Woodland Adventure” Palette Knife Aspen Tree Painting by Niki Gulley

 

“Woodland Adventure” ©2022 Niki Gulley

 18″ x 24″” textured oil painting on board

 
I find being immersed in nature can have such an uplifting effect, and I wanted to share that feeling with you in Woodland Adventure. I chose pure, intense reds and yellows contrasted against autumn greens to create a fall forest that vibrates with color and energy.  I placed the vivid foliage in diagonal sweeping shapes to create a sense of movement, so that you can feel the wind gently rustling the leaves and causing them to dance on a beautiful fall day.

“Autumn Hideaway” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

  

“Autumn Hideaway”  ©2022 Niki Gulley
16″ x 20″ textured oil painting 
 
After we finished teaching our Art Trek to Vermont, my husband and I stayed another few days to try to capture the gorgeous scenery on canvas and film. This morning, we ventured up to the majestic overlook by the Von Trapp property to capture the spectacular scenery. I loved how this cabin was perfectly tucked into the mountainside surrounded by vibrant fall foliage. The slightly overcast day made the colors pop even more! I hope you, too, can enjoy the crisp autumn air and a peaceful escape from the bustle of city life.
