SOLD - "Texas Impressions" Bluebonnet oil painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

"Texas Impressions" ©2016 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 24" x 12" textured oil painting

Just Sold! I painted these Texas Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush with extremely thick oil paint and palette knives to achieve depth and texture. The resulting image comes to life and is loaded with color and energy. In this vertical wildflower series, I've framed the paintings in espresso floater frames so that you can still see the textured oil paint continuing around the edges of the canvas. These Texas wildflowers look great hung alone or in a grouping, too!

New "Into the Woods" Palette Knife Fall Foliage oil painting by Niki Gulley


“Into the Woods" ©2016 Niki Gulley
9" x 12"" textured oil painting

I painted "Into the Woods" on location when we visited New England last fall during the height of fall foliage. The kaleidoscope of autumn colors was ablaze, and I was attracted to the dappled light sneaking through small gaps in the forested canopy, illuminating the winding path. Painted with palette knife and thick oil paint, this landscape is filled with color, movement and energy!

New "Aqua Rhythms" Palette Knife Seashore painting by Niki Gulley

"Aqua Rhythms" ©2016 Niki Gulley
9" x 12" textured oil painting

I wanted this painting to be about the power of water to uplift your spirits. Painted on location, I hope you can feel the tides lapping on the shore and hear the rhythmic, soothing sounds of the waves cresting and falling. Whenever I visit the seashore I always feel rejuvenated, and I hope I've translated that onto the canvas for you to experience it, too.

New "Marching into Autumn" Palette Knife Painting by Niki Gulley

"Marching into Autumn" ©2016 Niki Gulley
10" x 20" textured oil on canvas

I painted this colorful autumn scene near my home when the fall foliage was first starting to appear. I loved the vibrant reds, oranges and yellows of the cypress contrasted against the multitude of greens surrounding it. The patterns of the shadows underneath the trees created a sort of rhythm and I played up the angles of the trees and strokes to add to that feeling of a driving beat. I hope you, too, can feel the energy and joy of being surrounded by nature as autumn approaches.

If interested in more information on pricing and purchasing this palette knife fall scene, please e-mail Niki Gulley.

New "Morning Glow" oil painting of White Rock Lake by Dallas Artist Niki Gulley

"Morning Glow, White Rock Lake" ©2016 Niki Gulley
oil on canvas • 20" x 16"

On a peaceful spring morning, I set up my easel at White Rock Lake to capture the sun rising behind this beautiful, tangled Cottonwood tree. I liked how the warm light showed off the tree's curves and textured bark, and I chose this vertical composition to show off its size and strength. In the distance, the sun glistens along the water's surface and I hope this scene lifts your spirits for what the day has to bring.
