“Admiring the View” ©2020 Niki Gulley
20″ x 60″ textured mixed media painting on 1.5″ wrap around canvas with the painting continuing around the edges

Conjured up from my imagination, I wanted to create a fantasy forest filled with gorgeous, colorful foliage embracing your journey, wildflowers blanketing the ground under your feet and mysterious light beckoning you onward to discover what is beyond the next bend. Stop for a moment and take in the view or continue your venture and wander into the unknown.

“Symphony in Springtime” Abstract Bluebonnet Painting by Niki Gulley

  


 
“Symphony in Springtime” ©2020 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
 
 
Just Sold through The Good Art Company Gallery! A few months ago, one of my doctors suggested I try meditation. Not only do I think it’s helping with the illnesses, but as a bonus, painting ideas will appear in my head as I’m meditating. So here are some of the new pieces that are flowing out of me. You’ll see they’re a twist on reality with nature abstracted through color, strokes and texture. I hope they lift you up and create a sense of mystery, leaving interpretation up to your imagination.

“Into the Woods III” Palette Knife Autumn Birch Painting by Niki Gulley

 

“Into the Woods III”  ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting 
 
During our New England Fall Foliage Art Trek, we headed to the top of Stowe Mountain to explore. The painters set out to capture this gorgeous forest ablaze with color. I loved the split rail fence lining the walkway. Meanwhile, the photographers and tourists ventured on foot through the forest and then continued to explore by car the surrounding area, picking us up for lunch on their return. 
 
That afternoon we visited local cheese and cider companies tasting Vermont’s treats. In the evening we enjoyed viewing everyone’s paintings and watching the photographers’ slide shows from the week. Afterwards we delighted in one last dinner together. A great treat with new friends after a fun-filled day!

“Autumn Hideaway” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Autumn Hideaway”  ©2020 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.

“Autumn Journey” – Colorado Aspen Painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Autumn Journey” ©2020 Niki Gulley
30” x 20″ textured oil painting


Inspired by a trip to Colorado in the fall, trying to catch the beautiful autumn aspens leaves before they dropped, we just caught the last glimpse of color before an early snowfall hit. The combination of golden leaves set against the vivid blue sky, and the cool snow shadows contrasted against glowing light highlights as the sun cast its warming rays, was a symphony to the eye! I hope you, too, can slow down and enjoy the beautiful scenery on this winding journey.

The white bark of these glorious aspens rising towards the sky, reminds me of the columns holding up the roof of a cathedral. With the electric blue sky combined with the vibrant yellow leaves, this is my idea of the heaven that is nature. As such, I want your eye to move upwards pulling the focus skyward with a sense of wonder and whimsy.

New “Aspen Delight” Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

 Niki Gulley, Dallas, aspen, contemporary impressionist, tree painting

Painting in the mountains, especially this year was so cathartic and emotional. It was such a joy to be there surrounded by these amazing fall colors, that it would bring me to tears every day. I felt so fortunate to be able to do this when so many people weren’t able to travel, that I poured my heart and soul into every painting. I hope that you can feel the joy that I felt when you see them.

“Woodland Stroll” Birch Tree Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

“Woodland Stroll” ©2020 Niki Gulley
10″ x 20” textured oil painting

Today we continued our counterclockwise adventure around Iceland to arrive in the north, near the massive, impressive Godafoss waterfall. Unfortunately, our weather turned for the worse, and it was way too wet to paint the falls. However, just over the mountain, 20 minutes away at our b and b, the skies were fairly clear with even occasional glimpses of sunshine. I loved these birch trees all over their property, leading you down to the gorgeous view of the mountains in the distance. Sprinkled with summer wildflowers, I set out to capture the light casting long shadows from the trunks and causing the grasses to glow in the foreground, leading to a feeling of joy and serenity in this beautiful spot.
