Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

“Texas Pride II” ©2017 Niki Gulley
20″ x 30″ textured oil painting on canvas • SOLD
 
I painted these Texas bluebonnets and 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 wildflower series, I’ve painted the scene around the edges of the canvas on 1 and 1/2″ deep stretcher bars so that the painting can be hung without a frame for a contemporary look. Or, I also have a beautiful espresso floater frame where you can still see the painted edges of the canvas if you prefer framed artwork. 

The original oil painting of “Texas Pride II” is sold, but canvas prints are available. Please e-mail Niki@NikiGulley.com for pricing and ordering information.

Palette Knife Bluebonnet Painting by Texas Artist Niki Gulley

6″ x 8″ Textured oil painting by Niki Gulley
I was asked to create this special bluebonnet and Indian Paintbrush oil for a collector in Colorado to coordinate with other paintings she had representing each of her grandchildren and the states they were born. I was flattered to do so! The final painting is filled with color and texture so that the Texas wildflowers leap off the canvas.

Just Sold! “Bathed in Sunshine”

“Bathed in Sunshine” ©2012 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 30″ x 48″ textured painting on canvas

Just Sold!  Inspired by our trip to Provence last summer, I was awestruck by these massive fields of sunflowers blooming. Seeing this brilliant carpet of gold, with its sea of faces smiling towards the sun, just made me feel happy and I wanted you to experience that joy, too. In person “Bathed in Sunshine” practically leaps off the canvas with its vibrant yellow petals and extremely thick three-dimensional paint.

Ann Arbor Art Fair this weekend

“Dreams Revisited” ©2012 Niki Gulley
36″ x 48″ textured mixed media on wrap around canvas
In this painting I wanted to create a dream-like feel using one of my favorite flowers, the poppy, so I chose to paint this landscape at dusk as the sun is starting to set over the distant hills to add to that mood. I love the wildflower masses in the foreground creating waves of color, and the curving shapes adding to the sense of tranquility.

Last Day, Paris Art Trek with Niki Gulley & Scott Williams

“Framed in Wisteria,” Giverny, France • 7” x 5″ oil painting by Niki Gulley
Day 7 – Art Trek Paris with Niki Gulley and Scott Williams
The last few days of our Art Trek, we checked out of our hotel in Paris and headed to the peaceful countryside, near Giverny. The b&b we stayed at was straight out of a storybook, and the grounds themselves looked like an impressionist painting. We loved the setting so much, we stayed right there and painted outside our rooms the last day.
Our b&b outside of Giverny.
