New “Ready for Harvest” Tuscany painting by Contemporary Impressionist Niki Gulley

“Ready for Harvest,” Tuscany ©2019 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured mixed media

We visited Tuscany at the end of summer and were surrounded by grapevines everywhere we went. I loved the vibrant vines in the foreground framing the rolling hills dotted with more grapevines, olive trees, and plowed grain fields in the distance. I created this textured painting with palette knife and a lot of paint. I arranged the planted vines to lead your eye back to the Tuscan villa tucked into the distance. Morning light cast deep shadows on the ground and caused the leaves and soil to glow. As a treat when I finished, we enjoyed a picnic of salami, proscuitto, pecorino and of course, vino. Yum!

New “Visions of Wildflowers III” Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Visions of Wildflowers III” ©2019 Niki Gulley
36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
In this Texas wildflower series, I wanted to capture the excitement and energy felt during a beautiful April day when the bluebonnets are painting the horizon in blue. Driving through the hill country in springtime, there is such an amazing explosion of color from the bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush, coreopsis, Evening Primrose and the plethora of wildflowers, that it fills your heart with joy and awe. Focusing on the rows of color, I wanted to communicate the emotion felt being surrounded by all of this Texas beauty.

“Purple Majesty” ©2019 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ textured oil painting
 
The lavender fields in Provence are incredible – perfectly manicured rows and rows of an explosion of violet as far as the eye can see. Rippling purple columns draw your eye to the lone stone farmhouse in the distance. Meanwhile the sun starts setting through the clouds spanning across the sky in rhythmic waves, mirroring the lavender shapes below and creating a flowing harmony. Perspective lines converge, leading you to this joyful spot and I hope you can smell the amazing aromas and feel your spirits lifted while gazing into this scene!

New “Springtime at White Rock Lake” Bluebonnet Oil Painting by Niki Gulley

“Springtime at White Rock Lake” ©2019 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 14″ x 18″ textured oil painting
 
Just Sold! This might have been one of the best years for the bluebonnets and wildflowers in Texas, including Dallas where we don’t usually see many! The explosion of color along roadsides was incredible. I found this prolific patch of bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrush just down from my house at White Rock Lake, and I had to capture all of those beautiful blooms before they were gone. This morning started out slightly overcast, and the sun kept peeking in and out of the clouds, creating a soft glow to everything it touched. I wanted to capture that magical light illuminating the lake and accentuating the rows of wildflowers along the hill. It was such a peaceful spot that I wanted that emotion to come through, too. I hope you can feel the joy and tranquility of springtime with the wildflowers abloom in the Texas!

“Rooted Together” Palette Knife Poppy Painting by Niki Gulley

“Rooted Together” ©2019 Niki Gulley
24″ x 12″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas, framed in an espresso floater frame
 
Rooted Together was inspired from a trip we took to Monet’s Gardens outside of Paris. Being a lover of impressionist paintings, I was awestruck standing in the footsteps of one of my favorite painters! The gardens have been maintained immacuately and I could see exactly where he painted his paintings. I’ve always loved påurple irises and was particularly drawn to this view, with the irises large in the foreground and all of the colorful blooms leading up to his house behind them. Painted with thick oil paint and palette knife, this canvas is loaded with texture, surprising pops of color and energy.“Rooted Together” along with several of my contemporary impressionistic landscape paintings are available through my gallery, the Good Art Company, in Fredericksburg, TX at goodartcompany.com/gacart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=25&sort=20a&page=1&z.
