“Kinetic Blues” ©2021 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ textured mixed media on 1.5″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
With such depressing news these days, I felt compelled to paint something that would make us feel much better. And, it worked on me, so I hope it does the same for you. I felt so much happier after painting this larger than life bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush scene. Working with palette knife and a lot of texture, reveling in the process of flinging and pouring paint to create a joyful, kinetic kaleidoscope, and playing with a cheerful palette of reds, yellows and blues, I feel like this one really lifts one’s spirits and has a touch of whimsy to it.

Filled with joy and energy, Parade of Color is loaded with texture and uplifting hues that almost dance on the canvas. Mysterious light leads you down the path, beckoning you into the distance.

“Tidal Flow II” ©2021 Niki Gulley
16″ x 16″ Textured Mixed Media on 3/4″ gallery wrap canvas with the painting continuing around the edges
In this series, I layered and layered and layered paint over the course of several weeks. Longing for a cool beach and the cathartic sounds of the ocean, I started with drippy, fluid paint and then built up thick texture to bring the seaside waves to life. Slightly abstract, loose and free, I hope you can feel the healing qualities of the water, especially if we can’t get there ourselves right now.
