Willow City Loop ©2020 Niki Gulley
9″ x 12″ textured oil painting
I painted this piece on location along the Willow City Loop in Fredericksburg, TX. It was too early for bluebonnets, so I was searching for a beautiful scene that included some bright colors to break up all of the green in the landscape. These interesting red rocks were calling my name! Combine their interesting hues and shapes along with the dreamy morning light, and I thought this composition would make a perfect painting. A sliver of the road on the left reminds you to slow down and enjoy the journey, too.

“Autumn Progression” ©2020 Niki Gulley
textured oil painting on canvas • 12″ x 24″ • Framed in espresso 2″ floater frame
Flickering autumn leaves seem to almost dance in a gentle breeze while white sentinels slice through the colorful backdrop and create a rhythm as they march along. Repeating and receding, the aspen trunks lead you into the distance, inviting you to take a relaxing walk on a beautiful autumn morning.

“Visions of Wildflowers III” ©2019 Niki Gulley
SOLD • 36″ x 36″ textured oil painting on wrap around canvas
Just sold through the Good Art Company Gallery! 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.
