New “Bougainvillea Archway” by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Bougainvillea Archway” ©2021 Niki Gulley

12″ x 16″ textured oil painting on canvas panel

Framed in 3” espresso frame. • $950 framed / $800 unframed

Painted on location in Spain, these Bougainvillea vines were so gorgeous and prolific that I just had to paint them. Gently reaching across and cascading over the trellis and wrapping themselves around white washed columns, these magenta beauties formed the perfect welcoming entrance framing the intricate turquoise doorway. Purple shadows from plumbago plantings lead you along the cobbled path, inviting you to step inside and enjoy the view.

New “Planted Sunshine” Palette Knife Sunflower Painting by Niki Gulley

16″ x 20″ textured mixed media painting on canvas panel

 
A fellow painter friend of mine and I arrived at this sunflower field very early in the morning to capture the sun as it was beginning to rise and illuminate the landscape with golden light. We set up next to the road so that we weren’t infringing on the property. We had gotten about 45 minutes into our paintings and you know what happens with best laid plans! It turns out that the owner of the farm must not be a fan of painters because we were shooed away and threatened with fines if we didn’t leave. So memorizing that gorgeous light while I was packing up, I finished the painting at home from my started sketch, photos, and memories.

SOLD • ” x 24″ textured oil painting

 

Just Sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! Painted on location, I was drawn to this expansive mass of yellow wildflowers, stretching all the way from foreground to background blooming in the Hill Country. The explosion of sunny color made me feel so happy that I wanted to capture that joy and excitement in my painting. Hints of bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush dot the landscape and long sweeping shapes that flow across the horizontal panorama canvas add peace and happiness as you’re being surrounded by Texas Wildflowers on a beautiful spring day.

New “Running Red II” Textured Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

 “Running Red III” ©2021 Niki Gulley

30″ x 48″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas

In this new series, I wanted to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. Working on oversized canvases and painting the blossoms larger than life add to that feeling of hope and exuberance. Choosing to leave the background airy and working with thick layers of white on white paint, ribbons of brightly colored blooms dance across the canvas with spontaneity and freedom. Subconsciously, I feel like these light-filled visions came to me in response to so much bad news and the COVID lockdown. Searching for a way to create more space, room to roam and the freedom to live life to its fullest, I hope these paintings bring the beauty of nature inside and fill your spirit with light and cheer.

20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas • ©2021 Niki Gulley

As my garden kept evolving this spring, I was treated every day to a new blossoming surprise! After my irises were complete, I was greeted by the most gorgeous roses I’ve seen since I planted them 5 years ago. So, of course I had to go out and capture those beauties before they disappeared. 

 Wanting to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light, I painted the blooms large to add to that feeling of hope and exuberance. Choosing to leave the background airy and working with thick layers of white on white paint, multi-colored roses dance across the canvas with spontaneity and freedom. I hope these paintings bring the beauty of nature inside and fill your spirit with light and cheer.

20″ x 30″ Textured Mixed Media on Canvas ©2021 Niki Gulley

My irises this year were so beautiful and prolific and added so much joy after the year that we had, that I felt compelled to capture that feeling on canvas. Taking the ideas that I started in this new series from inside my studio to outside in my garden, my goal was to create pieces that are full of joy, energy, texture and light. 

Here you can see the first step in my painting process, my charcoal sketch of the irises showing them larger than life. Next I will begin to add layers and layers of paint to build up texture and color so that the cheerful blooms come to life and dance across the canvas.

“Spring Forward” ©2021 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24″ x 12″ textured mixed media painting on canvas
 
 
Just sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! On our drive through the Hill Country recently, I was drawn to this one lone tree rising above the horizon.  Waves of bluebonnets lead your eye into the distance towards that late light illuminating the wildflower filled hill and oak tree. Adding pops of color where the rainbow of wildflowers danced in between the blue also keeps your focus moving from foreground to background. I hope you can feel the joy and energy of springtime in Texas!
